Mucks or Bogs ??

In need of new Boots this year. Usually wear Muck Boots but am hearing that Bogs are better and last longer. Any recommendations ??

Re: Mucks or Bogs ??

I have never owned Mucks but I have a pair of Bogs. This will be their third season and they are still holding up well. And I hunt something almost everyday from October til February so they've got a lot of miles on them. The camo is starting to wear off the toes but that's the only thing I've noticed with them.

Re: Mucks or Bogs ??

I like my muck fieldblazers. I wear lacrosse alphaburly's during the cold months. The best boots I ever wore (borrowed for a day) were the muck artics with the blaze orange inside. They don't make them like that anymore last time I checked, but they were super comfortable and warm.

None of my mucks lasted very long. I like them but they fall apart. Currently wearing cabelas instinct. While the fit isn't as good they have lasted over a year

Re: Mucks or Bogs ??

I have a pair of Muck artic pros and have worn them for goose hunting and deer and some spring gobbler if its cold out ! They have kept my feet very warm even in the coldest weather in late season ! I have had them for 5 yrs and they still are in good condition and comfortable ! I actually just bought another pair of muck boots for early season goose and early season archery ! they are the pursuit stealth cool boot with more protection on the face of the boot to make them more abrasion resistant from briars and stuff !

Blend in or go hungry !!

Re: Mucks or Bogs ??

I've burned out every kind of rubber knee boot I have had for the last I don't know how many years. Last year I tried the the new Lacrosse Arrohead, and I'm actually on my second year for them. They are continuing to go strong with very minimal wear. Probably the most comfortable knee boot I have worn. They have a neoprene upper, and a foam rubber bottom that extends up the shin for added protection. They come in 2 thickness of neoprene, I have the thinned one but it is still plenty warm for archery hunting.

Very quality boot that I would highly recommend.

Re: Mucks or Bogs ??

Count me in as another vote for Lacrosse as an alternate to the Muck/Bog offerings. I've got a set of Lacrosse 400g Thinsulate insulated, full-rubber shank boots that my wife bought me about 10 years back that are still going. This despite many, many miles in the Midwest pheasant fields and dozens of creeks crossed. The camo is worn down in a good number of places, but they remain completely waterproof. They aren't terribly good in very cold weather on account of having only light insulation, but that's by design. She may have paid $70 for these back then and they were worth every penny. I've thought about getting some of the 1500g insulated Lacrosse boots because I've been so impressed with my current set.

Surprised to hear that. Personal experience is just that, of course, so your mileage may vary, but I've had nothing but good luck with my Lacrosse runner boots and Mack's Prairie Wings waterfowl waders (made by Lacrosse)
