I've been hunting, and hiking

I've been hunting, and hiking 250days a year for 6 years with these. Great boots. I resoled after 4 years. Rest of the boot looks perfect. Warm and waterproof. I had zero breakin with them. They felt like i'd been wearing them for months when I first put them on.

boots

I'm partial to cabelas iron ridge boots with 800gram insulated boots the price is right they need very little break in and any cabelas brand boots have a lifetime warranty. Danner seems to be popular here and I'm sure withgood reason .

inserting links

Guys,

In case anyone is interested in putting neat links into their posts rather than the long weird looking strings like the one in the first post on this page there is an easy way to do it. 

After you right click and copy the link from the address bar you then type a brief description into your post such as Great Cabelas Boots for example.  After you type it you left click and drag to highlight which will then enable the link option (chain link image) in the bar that allows you to bold, underline, etc.  Click on the chain link the left click to paste the link you copied earlier.  Example below.

long addresses

Yep Still Hunter they do seem to have very long addresses.  A couple of the hunting forums we use in-state really get messd up if one just cuts and pastes the address because the forum software will not wrap the string causing the entire thread to spread out sometimes two, three or more full windows wide so you have to side scroll back and forth to read every post in the entire thread which is a huge pain in the backend.  That necessitated most of us learning how to title the links within the forum software.  On one the software does not offer the "link" option and we have to use the square brackets to enclose the address along with descriptive words which ends up being a bit more work than on here, but once I did it a few times it got easy.

boots

I own two pairs of Lowa's. I put 50 miles in 6 days last year in the Dunior Valley in Wy last fall chasing elk.  My feet always ended the day dry and ready for more.  A bit pricey and take a while to break in but once you do they are tough to beat.

After an entire field season

After an entire field season of bighorn sheep work (five days in the backcountry in backcountry ranger cabin or bivying) the Asolo TPS 520 GV's proved themselves beyond belief. I have no need to try anything else... ever again. I will buy these boots until they stop making them. Once again, this was not the occasional backbacking or hunting trip. This was nonstop abuse all summer long in the nastiest terrain I have ever hiked/climbed in. Give em a try. 

They'll be surrounding my feet when I hopefully put a mtn goat down in a couple weeks!

I have a pair of Irish Setter

I have a pair of Irish Setter Grizzly Trackers and Danner Pronghorns and I love both. The Grizzly Trackers were the most comfortable boot out of the box IMO.  The Pronghorns were also comfortable but somehow gave me a blister on one of my calfs the first weekend I wore them and I even had thick wool socks on but after that they've been nothing but perfect.

Funny how we all think we've found the perfect boot, and won't buy anything else.  Big smile

Boots

The challenge for me is to find something in a size 15.  Ive got a pair of cabelas elk hunters that are about 8 years old.
