Re: Huntin Boots?

I'm not sure but this is the 8th yr. using my current pair of Muck Boots. My first pair lasted 6 years until one of the soles came off.

PETA hates me, but I'm okay with that......

Re: Huntin Boots?

wow! 8 yrs out of a pair of mucks? You must not use much. I get 1.5 yrs out of a pair. I cant find a pair that is comfy, warm and lasts more then 2 yrs. Mucks separate at the sole, Lacrosse split.
Currently I have a cabelas pair that mimic mucks. Instinct accelerator. Only used them since Oct so jury is out.

havent found a warranty

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same

I wear them every time its cold enough and also walk countless miles shed hunting while wearing them.. I wouldn't even look at another brand of boot next time I need a pair, ( which will probably be next yr. because they are getting pretty tore up from briars etc ) ill just buy my next pair of Mucks.

Re: Huntin Boots?

I am on my third year with my Mucks, still going strong. I just don't like the way my feet sweat in them.
I just bought a pair of Irish Setter Elk Trackers, 1000 gram. Only worn them once so far but they are nice, I just like leather boots.

Re: Huntin Boots?

Always good to check what the PA hunter is using.
I'm down south and have cold weather boots. It's already getting cold. Today was below 40, and the damp temps don't help.


I have an good old pair of Sorel boots. Found a good outer treatment for the leather. Had some homemade patch lube for a muzzleloader that proved good for the sorel leather. Made of petroleum jelly(vasoline) and vegetable shortening.

Have a newer pair of rubber 1000 grain rubber insulated boots. Bought them on a closeout summer sale some years ago. Those $150 boots now make me wince. But then I'm down south.

Had a couple of pairs of military uninsulated boots. Bought as "blems." Thought of getting them in order for winter wear north and south. Decided to use a 70 year old military solution for cold weather. GI's in World War II had uninsulated boots and used gaiters. Will work good for me. But moreso for hiking partner who wears low cut hiking boots in cold southern weather. I have her all set with cold weather (leg) gaiters, a neck gaiter to keep the neck and head area warm, and military fur lined mittens with a "trigger" finger for the camera she carries. Good for me to test out on a hiking trail first.

Re: Huntin Boots?

Rubber boots just don't hold up like leather between wearing them and natural rubber break down I'm happy if I get 3 seasons .....2 is more likely.....I've always bought Lacrosse or Cabela's sounds like it may be time to try Mucks

Re: Huntin Boots?

I wear my Muck Woody Sports for everything I do in the woods. They get worn at least once a week whether it's Novemebr hunting upland game, sitting on deer stand in December, hanging a treestand in July ice fishing in January or shoveling snow in February, or spring gobbler hunting in May. This pair of boots will be two years old, on Christmas Day. They have been Gooped once in 2014 from a hole that was sliced through the sidewall of the boot (don't ask but it was user error). Other than that they are doing fantastic. My feet sweat in them every time I wear them, regardless of whether or not it's 10 degrees or 70 degrees. Additionally I have a pair of Muck Chore ST's that I wear for work (I do pipeline) on rainy days, muddy days or snowy days and any time it's below freezing. Those boots have lasted me since November 2011. I have one hole in the neoprene but they are stout. I still love leather boots but NOTHING beats a Muck.

Only the owners of a GSP would truly understand, "If I fits, I sits".
