I now have a pair of Wolverines that are in their 2nd season so I will see how well they hold up.
I had a pair of Bear Stalkers that the sole dry rotted on as well. I called Rocky customer service year before last and complained. They wound up sending me a new set of replacement soles. I had them put on and the boots have been good to go. The guy that put the soles on said they were much better quality than the originals.

I have a pair of Danner pronhorn's that have served me well. I also has two pair of White's boots. The White's boot are far superior to the Danner Pronghorn, but so is there price tag.
White's will make a boot that is custom fit to your foot. White's will also rebuild your boots. The first pair of white's I bought back around 1990. I have sent these boots in twice for a rebuild job and I still own them to this day. These boots are the Smoke jumper model and they are heavy, but they are a great boot.

two guides I spoke to here locally just got some Lathrop and Sons boots before the season this year and were VERY happy with them. Relatively short hiker style but did great even for 4th rifle up here (and we got some decent snow).

I have a pair of Vasques that I love but they are big (like an 11" boot).

Reading Cabella's reviews ,some of the better warmer boots don't have insulation in the toe area, and a few people commented on cold toe's.

So last weekend I was at Cabella's, and sure enough I looked at all the boots. Some serious hunting boots, withOUT insulation in certain area's. Doesn't make sense.....

Depends on the application in my opinion. I wear mucks during bow season, but once gun season starts, the snow falls, and the temp drops into the teens I wear a pack boot. Had a pair of Rocky's, my feet still froze while still hunting, but I suspect I have poor circulation. Bought a pair of Sorel Glaciers this year, my feet don't get cold anymore. Not sure how good they would be for scent control, and I am guessing I won't want to hike around all day in them.
