Default Good boot for hunting

I was just wondering what a good warm , water proof boot is for deer/turkey hunting and ice fishing? I hunt in Northern Wisconsin so it must be a very warm boot! Light weight if possible.. Thanks guys!

Check out the Muck Artic Pros. I've done a lot of research and they seem to get the best reviews. They are a little higher priced but spending the $$$ is a small price to pay to be able to stay out on my stand all day in the rut! Plus, this time of year you can get them a little cheaper than normal. I just bought a brand new pair off of ebay for $85.

I hunt South Dakota in the winters and I seem to do fine with a 400 gram insulated boot... I count on my socks to provide the insulation. Layer one pair thin nylon/polyester/spandex socks and one pair heavy wools over those... that way I can use the same pair of boots all season.

Currently using these: http://www.cabelas.com/product/Footw...3Bcat104841180

i agree with fastetti. i have a pair of muck chore and i can sit out in the woods or on a lake and i usely dont have a problem enless my feet start to sweat then they get cold. the chore are not as good as the artic pros but they are cheaper.

ok thanks guys! i'll be going with the muck boots then. I've got some other rubber insulated boots from a army navy store and had them for a year or two and they started to crack and the bottom actually started peeling/cracking right off the boot itself. pieces of junk. But any certain model of boot i should use??? And Psylocide, 400 gram wouldn't be nearly enough for the conditions i go out in. Thanks though!

No problem, like I said... I hunt in South Dakota winters, and I go out in -20 to -30 (windchill) days. Layered up right, I've never needed more than 400 grams insulation for my boots.

With the Mucks, take a look at the ratings. They aren't like normal boots. I personally get cold feet pretty easy so I went with the Arctics. I know the Woodys are great too. Make sure to get them a little big so you can wear some thick socks with them. I can't wait for fall to try my new ones out.

My wife has a pair of Lacrosse Alpha Burly's in 800 grams that she loves. I'm more inclined toward pack boots myself.
