Hunting boot selection
« on: May 12, 2020, 08:48:06 PM »
Hey guys whatís your go to hunting boot? I would like something with good ankle support for hiking steep canyons and water proof. I use gators with my boots. Insulated,  non insulated Iím not sure yet. These will probably double as late season deer elk boots also.

Myself, hunting the hills and ravines of the Palouse, I use my Kenetrek elk boots.  Might be overkill for flat ground,  but I don't hunt much flat ground...

I had the cabelas meindl denalis and loved them. The leather cracked from the rubber rand to the shoelace eyelet. Went to exchange them and Cabelas no longer carried them. I switched to crispi and love them. I run the summits for deer hunting. These usually go on sale each Fatherís Day on black ovis. I run the nevadas for western Washington elk. Love them both.

Are you looking for upland bird specific boots? Tough to say given all the variables, the closest thing to a do all boot I have worn is the crispi summit.

Kennetrek mountain extreme for rugged stuff. Very comfortable with great foot and ankle protection.

Muck wetlands for cool weather days in fields, mud, swampy stuff. They are comfortable and warm, but not what I would call rugged.

Step once, look twice...

Thanks guys,

MFowl- that link did help!
Not looking for upland specific more big game specific. I used to hunt in mucks which worked but even pheasant hunting I go through a lot of steep terrain in canyons that they didnít work great. A buddy got me looking at hiking boots, so I picked up Lowa Renegades, and loved them.

I appreciate the comments, I have never tried the kennetrek, I will look into them
