Default Turkey hunting boots

What kind of boots do you wear and why???

I wear the Lacroose turkey boots but they are not very water proof. I want something with no insulation air boob soles and is water proof...

I bought a pair of Cabelas Tracker dry plus boots this year and I love them. Tall, waterproof almost to the top of the boots, extrememly comfortable, light and not expensive.

I think mine are Cabela's Stalkers (but they could be "Trackers" like st 1's, not 100 % sure of the name). They are Gore-tex waterproof, uninsulated, lightweight like a tennis shoe (mostly a canvas-like material), but 8-9" high for ankle support, and camo. The soles are not knobbies, though. About $100. I only use them in the turkey woods, and they have lasted three years so far, and I'll bet they'll be fine for another 5-6-8 years. I'd recommend them, and I don't work for Cabela's or have an interest in a shoe/boot factory!!

I have two set's of LaCrosse rubber knee high boots. Their Burleys (insulated) and their Grange (Non-insulated). I love these boots for spring turkey hunting, mainly because they keep my pant legs dry from the dew in the field grass. So depending on the weather, I switch accordingly.

I have anuber of different boots,,,
1 pair of Rocky Snake boots
2 pairs of Rocky 8" Cornstockers
1 pair of Norkitia knee high Rubbers

The snake boots are the best , They leek like hell , but are the quietest boot I have wore , and most that hunt with me can not believe the difference in how I can move in the woods. Believe me , they fit tight and are close to a Moccosion sole , so you can feel branches under your feet, I will say that I beleive these boots have made me more successfull in the sport.

I plan on buying another pair this coming year, and hope for a pair that don't leek,,, a friend bought me a pair of seal skin socks a few days before the season to keep my feet dry in the old pair and worked real good,, the only problem is drying the boot afterwards...BT

I use a Timberland Guide Boot, 12 inch high. Gore-tex liner, outer leather with air mid-sole. I also add 3 coats of Nik-Wax waterproof preserver every summer. Most comfortable shoe I have ever owned...they also double as a fall boot for turkey/deer bowhunting.

Hey, Mr. Longbeard, you wrote:

Me too. Those Dolly Partons are especially soft, but I'm kinda partial to my Pam Andersons!!

Hee hee, and I apologize to all who are offended by my sexist remark!!
