Hey guys just thought id start a thread to help some new hunters find good boots. please share where you hunt, and how long you have been using your boots. This year I was tired of cheap boots and bought some Irish Setter boots. So far I am really happy with them. It was almost negative for rifle season this year and they kept my feet from falling off. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/2654342459/irish-setter-grizzly-tracker-1000-gram-insulated-boots?cm_vc=ProductFinding

I've been trying different boots myself.  All better ones but I've yet to find the right insulation level for me since I get cold feet easily.  All have held up well, I just can't stay warm.

I hunt southern Alabama. We have generally mild winters with a few blasts of cold air and a deer season that runs Oct-Feb. In bow season my go-to boots are uninsulated LaCrosse 18" boots. They are faily light, waterproof, and the rubber leaves very little scent behind. They don't breath so if you bowhunt with your feet in the sun it can be uncomfortable on warm days. My current pair are begining to crack but they are @12 years old.
I also use a pair of LaCrosse Alpha Burleys which I think are about 800gr thinsulate. I use these more for slogging around in hog county(bottomland sloughs) where I know I'll encounter standing water late season.
When it gets COLD, 20's down here, I have a pair of Irish Setter boots that may be 2000gr insulated. They are huge like pac-boots but I can almost forego socks and keep toasty toes all day. Cold feet ruin my hunt faster than anything else.
I also run a pair of Rocky hikers with about 400gr insulation for creeping around the hills when it's just chilly and for Spring turkey and hogs.

2000 gram is what I think I'm going with next.  That or 2400.  I'd rather have my feet bake than freeze.

I just got a pair of Danner Steadfast uninsulated for $ 70 , Danner runs sales from time to time and you can pick up a pretty good pair of boots for a substantial savings. I have worn a pair of Danner Pronghorns (all leather) for the last 8 years with 1000 gram insulation with good results. Cant get a better boot than Danner in my opinion.

This past hunting season was a lot warmer than last year, so I haven't had a chance to try out my 2400 gram boots.  I used my 400 gram Wolverines instead.  I think the weather was in the 40's and 50's this time as opposed to the teens and 20's of the year before.
