if was planning on sitting for any length of time in cold weather , I'd probably be looking for a "felt pak" style like Nokia or Kodiak. Not the type of boot that you'd want to walk far in, but with a good layering of socks they will certainly keep the toes warmer than most others that I can think of. I have both these and 1000 g thinsulate/ Gore-tex styles and for just plain sitting on the watch, give a felt pak any time.......just my thoughts......anyhow
Danner Ft. Lewis 200gr Thinsulate ( the originals). This boot has served the vast majority of my biggame and upland bird hunting needs. Sized 1/2 size larger than my normal size to accomodate extra heavy weight SmartWool socks and sock liner in cold weather. In milder weather I install footbeds and wear with midweight wool socks and liner. Always been happy with Danner.
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
