    Default A little help please

    I'm going down the Yukon River up to the Kateel on a moose hunt this year. I've been looking at boots. I looked at the Lacrosse pant wanders, different types of rubber boots and I'm not sure what to get I was wondering if anyone would have some suggestions for me? Not ever being up there I'm not sure what to expect. Thanks for the help.

    The Kateel is a fairly small river. Plenty of swamp, lowlands, etc. in the area tho. Plenty of threads here on footwear/waders/breathables, etc.
    You'll like having some sort of wader, either rubber of breatheable, and also something you can hike higher elevations with. As you go up the Kateel, if that's what your going to do, you get in to some good griz country.
    Have fun.

    I would recommend getting something with Ankle fit boots, you don't want to be hiking around with your feet sliding around in your boot, it won't be long before the blisters form. Never been to that area but have spent a few weeks hiking around swampy/marshy areas and the ankle fits are great. I would also recommend some sort of regular boot for actual hiking as you will want to get up on the knolls to give you better spotting capabilites.

    I hunted off the Dulbi R. Last year. I'm not sure if the conditions are exactly the same but... I like to hunt in Extratufs. I also have Mucks the Arctic Pro model (I sweat a bit in those). I always carry hip or chest waders in the boat. I'm using LaCrosse hip waders. In moose country I seldom use any other boots.

    I agree, I need something water proof but I can do some hiking too. Have any of you tried these boot?

    A good pair of insulated knee boots cannot be beat. Used them on my Yukon moose hunt last year, and they worked like a charm! Great for the lowland swamp areas.

    As did the hip waders.

    Cabelas has a boot that resembals the bushboot it is called cabelas tundra. I know of 1 person who has it and loves it. He says that you can really tighten it down hood so it is like a hiking boot, but when you need to cross a swamp you can flip it up and it is know a hip boot
