There’s no way you can go hunting without spending time outdoors, in open fields and deep forests or cold water ponds. As a matter of fact, for some, this may be the main reason what got them into hunting: spending more time outdoors in the open. As time goes by, you get to learn that when you go hunting, it’s not only your hunting gear that's important, but also everything you put on. No good hunter wears non-camouflage vest or uses a plain kitchen knife.
If you hunted elk before you know that shooting skills and physical condition make the best asset for you as a hunter. But, you also know that the wrong gear can ruin your hunting experience just as much. When you are too cold, too hot or get bothered by the blisters on your feet, your hunting might be a total failure. Experience has taught us that our needs when it comes to hunting boots are quite similar, and differences come from the fit, the budget and, why not, our specific likes.
If you are calling yourself a hunter, you already know by now that no successful hunt was made with blisters and when your feet are soaking wet… What does this mean? That wearing a good pair of boots that keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable throughout the entire hunting day is just as important as wearing the right gear. You don’t want to have the some heavy hunting boots, even though the best in the world, when walking and stalking the entire day, or some poorly insulated boots when duck hunting in cold weather.
