I was wondering if anyone has chased goats around in xtratuffs. They are all I use here in southeast and I do a lot of alpine hunting. I have hiked some pretty wicked ridges and peeks in these boots and actually prefer them for coming down steep terrain since my ankle can bend a little when trying to dig the sides of my feet in. I have taken freinds out that use the high ankel support type boots and they seem to always be on thier butts (might not be the boots in all cases). I am planing a goat hunt up north in the fall and I know the terrain up on top is a bit more rockey than down here. I just thought I would put this out there to see if I am crazy and should buy another pair of boots for this hunt.
