Default Cabelas Goretex Snake Boots

Does anybody have any Cabelas brand Gortex Snake Boots? I was thinking about buying some since they were quite a bit cheaper than rockies. Just wandering if they were as good as Rockies.

case, I have nothing against boots, but I prefer the chaps. They help protect your legs through briars and you can remove them when your in the stand.

Sniper,
I have both.....but the chaps are to scratchy in the woods.Deer can pick-up the
noise from the brush rubbing on them......The best way to go is Chamois Cloth
pants and shirt or wool pants and shirt and 16" snake boots......
I've had hunting partners that used chaps,but they Burlaped them...
Before the Camo craze everyone up North use to use wool pants and wool Plaid
uppers.Wool is the most quietier of all.Down South is alot different it's alot warmer
to use wool.Chamois Cloth clothing in camo is better.

reb, do your boots bother you? I tried a pair on and they seem very stiff and hard to walk in. Maybe it was the brand, but the pair I tried on felt restricting. Do the soften up with wear?

Your feet get cold cause they Sweat.....I rub them with
Unscented Secret Deoderant to keep them dry....
