Still Hunting Boots

Post by Spauldo on Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:03 am

What are the best still hunting boots you have used? My Lacrosse Burly's are just to darn sloppy. Quiet, but sloppy. My pac boots for winter and sitting are, well, pac boots. Any moccasin users out there? Thanks for your input.

I was going to give moccasins a try this year, but there are so many swamps in my part of PA that I decided to stay with rubber boots for most of my hunting. I like the Hodgman rubber uninsulated knee high boots. They have a form fitted ankle to reduce slop and the rubber soles are light enough to create dexterity while feeling for a spot to put your foot down quietly. They don't breathe much though, so they are not a very good choice in warmer weather.

Thanks NanookOdaNorth. I am beginning to realize it is where I walk and in what conditions as much as it is what's on my feet. I appreciate the reference to the Hodgman's though, Lacrosse isn't doin it for me so I may give these a try. Thanks again

ive had a few pairs of the alpha burly sports, theyre alright for about one season then they start to fall apart, usually the sole comes off or it start to crack around the ankle which usually means they start to leak and thats a big "no no". so i think im gonna get some burly classics for early season, but for the winter if you can find a pair of the old rocky bear claws on ebay or something, these old boots are hard to beat for cold weather also a buddy of mine bought some hot mocs and now he swears by'em. plus most rocky boots are compatible to the new style soles so if theyre wore out takem to your local shoe cobblar and vwala( or how ever you spell that) ive had mine resoled about ten times and still makin it to tha woods. just some ideas Smile

Good stuff vortex1. Winter boots in my neck of the woods are generally pac boots, but I like the rocky idea, several guys use those for tracking in these parts.

If you're still hunting during the early season, or even later on and it's not gotten too cold, get a pair of the Goretex waterproof socks, and a pair of wrestling shoes. You can keep your feet dry, and feel every stick and rock underfoot while still having good ankle support.

Even in the later season, a pair of good wool socks, Goretex oversocks and the wrestling shoes will make an excellent pair of "stalking/still hunting" footwear.
