Winter Hunting Boots

Anyone have recommendations on hunting boots for the winter? Specifically for someone who plans on hunting long hours in the stand.

I toughed it out last year, but I'm not looking to do the same this year. I want warmth when I'm not moving.

Personal experiences only please.

Re: Winter Hunting Boots

Try buying boot covers and put a warmer in each one works for me and I spend all day in stand. Oh and Danner pronghorn 800 are my boots of choice.

live laugh love and hunt hard!

Forest county got to love it!

Those instant foot insole warmers work well. A pair of alpaca wool insoles are great too. Boot blankets work as well.

Re: Winter Hunting Boots

One of the best things when going to a stand. Wear a pair of socks to the stand and carry a dry pair with you. Put the dry pair on at the stand. The sweat from walking in will make your feet cold, even with wool/poly socks.

Re: Winter Hunting Boots

My rule is a winter boot, that's used in minus forty degrees, should have a rubber bottom, be insulated, be really insulated if on a stand more than thirty minutes, and carry hand warmers for feet bottoms if staying on a stand for hours.
That and dress socks against the skin of the foot, two pairs of wool socks for sitting, and the uglier the boot the better.
No one will mind the lack of pretty boots, if in two hours the toes of your feet start falling off.

I have a pair and absolutely love them on days where it struggles to even get out of the teens.
