I had one heck of a time with boots this year!
First Sheep hunt fly-in with son #2 Wyatt in DS165, his tag BTW...I wore a pair of Scarpa Omegas, these boots killed my feet so bad that I walked 8 miles on the Tazlina Glacier in my Crocs on the trip out!....No Ram!
Second sheep hunt walk-in, my lab chewed up my Mammut Mamook GTX's...(which are three times the boot them Scarpa's are IMO) so I took my old Cabelas "Canadan Hunters" by Meindl, these are the 4th pair of them that I have owned with great luck!
After a day and a half of walking into the sheep area I noticed my right boot didn't look right, holy s**t, major failure! the whole sole was coming off the boot! with alittle duck tape, 550 cord and hunting in crocs (well kinda) we sniffed around for three days for a ram, when it snowed, this hunt was over, I was feeling lucky when I made it out!....with no Ram!
