    Default What Are Good Hunting Boots?

    I am going on a brown hunt in October on the Alaskan Peninsula and was wondering what some good boots would be. I am told the area I'm going to is not hip wader country just a few streams to cross and was recommend by my guide to wear hunting boots with glacier socks. So if anyone has a suggestion please let me. Thanks.

    Default Check these out...

    I have a pair of Perfekt Hunters made by Meindl. Bought them from Cabelas and have used them quite a bit from Arizona desert to up above Atugin Pass in October...Have kept my feet dry and comfortable. Good luck...

    I like Lowa Sheep Hunters. A friend recommended them to me after my Danners wore thin. I wish my Danners had worn out sooner. I didn't know what I'd been missing.

    Glacier socks are made to use with plastic boots that use removable liners. I don't know how you'd use them with leather boots.

    For leather boots, here's a good option.

    I've been happy with my Danner Ft. Lewis Go-Devils.
    They're warm enough in cooler weather.
    Waterproof.....although I give them a dose of Obennauf's LP when needed.
    Ideal for varied terrain and enough support if you have to do a little climbing.
    Now what ?

    I was going to comment on how well I like my Danner elk hunters. They are pretty worn and in need of replacement.
    Now you've got me thinking

    Default Boots

    I use Danners, they are okay, but I also use Neos river treckers. These things rock. They only weight 2.9 lbs, I keep them in my pack and they slip on over my hunting boots. I have never killed an animal in Alaska without crossing water at some point. When not in use you don't have to walk around in waders all day.
