    Default Hunting Boot Recommendation

    Any recommendations on a good quality hunting boot? I currently have a pair of Irish Setters (gore-tex 800gr. insulation) which have a lot of miles on them and which I've been very happy with but I'm always open to others. I've owned Rocky, which unless things have changed were great and are now crap, Gorilla and Wolverine. It doesn't look like Wolverine makes hunting boots anymore. I have Timberland hiking boots which are fantastic but it doesn't look like they making hunting versions either. TC

    I usually keep an eye out in clearance section at SAIL when I need new boots. That's how I got my 2000gr. Irish Setters for $80 a couple years ago. Discontinued boots can still be good boots. Check frequent as available sizes are usually limited once they go on clearance.

    Had a pair of Danners for many years, very comfortable and durable. I currently have Irish Setters, just as comfortable but may not last as long as the Danners.

    I would recommend a pair of Danner pronghorns. I have a pair now that I have used for 10 years and they look beat up, but still comfortable and waterproof. I have tried others but they just weren’t as comfortable and leaked water after a few seasons. Just bought another pair of Danners for when these ones quit.

    I have three pairs of Danners, one pair of Cabelas rubber boots, one pair of Kamik no insulation but one size too big for thick socks, one pair of Kammik with an insert which I replaced with the military wool insert, one pair of lacross Alpha Burly.

    I wear them all at various times throughout the season but if I had to pick only one pair I would go with a pair of rubber boots one size big to add thick socks as required.

    I get about one year out of my rubber boots if I wear them all the time (scouting and hunting), the develop cracks at flex points. My oldest Danners are 15 years old and still in very good shape.

    One feature of my boots is the height, the higher the better for walking through swamps.

    All boots mentioned must be good as they have served their owners well.
    BUT if you want the absolute best. Schnees .
    Be forewarned,they are not cheap,but the best never is.

    I likely have 4 pair of Nokan boots in my basement and a pair at camp. They used to be the best. Now they are garbage. The last 3 pairs have just fallen apart in no time. This fall I didn't even get 2 weeks out of new pair before the seams let go. Too bad I loved their design. No more Nokan boots ever. I bought a pair of Irish setters and they are good so far.
