With supertuffs, duct tape & rain pants, you can go about anywhere you could in waders.
Gary, What are supertuffs?
When I was guiding (about 15 years ago), I always hunted in my hip boots. Even when sheep hunting.
Bring your hiking boots and a pair of Neo waders that slip over your hiking boots. You can buy them at Barney's and other places. See link below.
