Snow Shoes

What do you have and recommend? Just looking ahead to late season. What makes a snow shoe good or bad. I never used them. Also where did you buy them? Thanks Grant

Re: Snow Shoes

I still use the ones made of ash and rawhide. I would buy a set of aluminum and neoprene or rubber if I didn't already have a pair.

Re: Snow Shoes

I have a set of TUBBS. Campmor, EMS, Gander Mtn have them. A little pricey but they are well worth it. My son and I used them on Thursday to deer hunt since the snow up here is 2-4' deep.

Re: Snow Shoes

I have a pair of red feathers, they have been great. Some other brands are Yukon Charlies and MSR.

They are dependant on you weight, the heaveir you are, the longer the shoes need to be. In my case, 275lbs I need a pair of 36 inchers.

Re: Snow Shoes

The bindings are critical.
I really like the wratchet bindings on Cabela's shoes.

We hunt hare up north in 3-5 feet of snow a lot, so we learned the hard way.
