Re: boots

IMO go to a farm and home store and get a cheap pair of rubber boots. I don't know why you would need to pay extra for camo or insulation if just using for archery. Are you sitting in a stand or blind. If I was in a stand I might go with brown.

Re: boots

I bought the Cabelas brand last year. I have worn them for pheasants in the snow and for wild hog hunting in SC. I really like them.

Re: boots

get a pair of muck boots . insulation is needed during archery season .Especially up here in Potter county . I wear those cheap farm boots every day at work .they will make your feet sore if you do much walking in them .I agree with lou camo is not needed my Mucks are black .

Re: boots

If I'm going to be walking I will get a good pair of leather boots. I got a pair of rubber boots from Wally world that lasted 3 archery seasons and numerous snow shovelings for $39.99. I have no problem spending good money for walking boots though.

Re: boots

Whatever you decide, find a pair of rubber boots that fits fairly snug around your ankle and calf. There's nothing like the sound of sloppy rubber boots flop-flopping as you walk to your stand in the early morning darkness. I like my Hodgman's. They are non-insulated, light weight and fit snug. Hard to beat for $40.

Re: boots

I also went with the Cabela's brand of rubber boots. Just bought them this year. Only thing is it may take some time to get rid of the rubber smell so once you get them wear them scouting, setting trail cams, etc.
