Good pair of hunting boots

Looking for something thats max 800g and waterproof. These will be used for hunting both here in PA and Elk hunting next year in CO so Im looking for something that is comfortable and lightweight. I know this makes things difficult but I dont want to break the bank either. Whats everyones thoughts on a decent boot $150 and below?

Re: Good pair of hunting boots

yikes that is a tall ask at that price. Quality boots normally will cost you at least $250. I typically recommend Lowa for just about anything but they will break the bank. I did get a pair of Meindl Alaskan Hunters in Cabelas after xmas sale last year. They are typically $360 and I think I got them for $190. They are 200g and a very nice mountain hiking boot. So, I guess my recommendation is to keep an eye out for finding a good quality boot on sale

It's too late now, but watch the clearance table at Dicks toward the end of summer. I bought a $180 pair of Danner High Ground 8" for $60. Love them!

Alrighty then!

If you want to stay under $150, take a look at Cabela's "Iron Ridge" hunting boots. They're Gore-tex, and I think pretty decent boots for the money.

Re: Good pair of hunting boots

depends on your hunting, for work i've been wearing keen boots and wore them straight through the winter last year with a different wool sock on the cold days (outside on concrete) only broke out my 1000gram thinsulate boots a few times.

for a more strenuous hike I like a bit more support of my asolo boots but they come with a bit more weight.

try on a bunch of different boots to see what you like then search amazon and sierra trading post for deals

These. I still have mine after 10 years of hunting. All leather and 800mg thinsulate and goretex. They are little on the heavier side, but not bad.

Re: Good pair of hunting boots

Lowa,Zamberlan,and meindl if you want quality boots.Kennetreks are also another one to consider.All of these will put a dent in your wallet,but are well worth the price tag.
