Boots?

I was just in Bass Pro in Denver. They have Danner's Montana Hunter boots on clearance for $130 - Reg $279. They're the all leather mountaineering style (Gortex and rubber around boot). Also, they have clearance pricing on Schnees--the Montana made snow boots. I don't remember the prices on the Schnees, but it definitely was worth checking out (don't think I've EVER seen thoses babies on sale). Definitely great boots and great prices. Also, Bass Pro sells a Red Head (brand) "Treestand" sock. I wouldn't normally make a big stink (no pun intended) about socks, but I would say these are the most comfortable socks I've ever owned AND my feet have never got cold wearing them either. Just FYI.

Danner Pronghorns on sale at Cabelas

Depending on your size, Cabelas has Danner Pronghorn all leather 600 insulate on clearance for 99 bucks. A great price for a great boot. I'm on my 2nd pair in 5 years and I wear them to work in the field and hunting. I hunt 35 to 40 days a year all on my feet and I'm in the field 3 or 4 days a week.

The 600 can be hot but I think they had 200's on sale also. I have paid 180 for these and was pleased to see them at 99. good luck

boots

Im a huge fan of Rocky boots they dont really need break in and the soles are very gummy so you can do ascends and descends with very little effort..

but the soles dont last as long as danners...

on the other hand my fav. boot of all time is a browning no name..

I worked at SW for sometime and used alot of boots ( in az they dont last)

As function they all have perks but Rocky for the price is unbeatable.. except browning but good luck findin those!

I am a huge fan of Danner Talus for unisulated hikers! I also have the Military
, but they are not available to the public. My favorites would be Pronghorns if I could get a pair that did not leak! I just sent mine into Danner for their testing purposes and hope they give me back a good pair! I have the 400gr as well and they are a tad better in the leaking dept. Good luck and try as many as possible. My garage looks like a womans shoe collection, but in boots, but it is worth it to find which ones work! Thumbs up I got alot of them discounted on ebay as well.

I bought a pair of Irish Setter Grizzly Trackers 1000g for this season and I've worn them quite a bit already and I must say they are probably my most fav boot I've owned. Last pair I had was Danners.

The Grizzly Trackers are on sale right now at Cabelas. 1000g insulate was 119.99 and the 400g insulate was 109.99 and cabelas gives you a 2 yr warranty on these boots.

My Brother and I have been using Danners for years on a lot of tough elk hunts and Big Horn Sheep. In my opinion they are the best.

Boots?

Have to agree with those who suggested Miendels. Great boot for the high country. I wear the Denali boot from them and it is a great for steep rough rocky terrain.

Can't say anything bad about Danners. I just prefer the Acadia and the Ft Lewis for flatter terrain. Actually I wear my Matterhorn 1998 as my flatland and upland bird hunting boots.

Boots?

Well I bought the Irish Setter Grizzly trackers on Wed and they felt way way good. Then went back to Cabelas last night with my dad and he bought the Danner Pronghorns and I'm kind of jealous. Almost went back to Cableas today and switched em out! I had a buddy tell me he split the sole on his Pronghorns on the opening day of the hunt with in the first hour and then his replacement pair did the same thing. I wish I could afford to just buy both!
