Re: Hunting boots
My feet have always froze in central PA woods in deer season. They have always been heavy and uncomfortable.... that is until I found and tried Irish Setter boots. Now mine are insulated, and I love them, but I would definitely look into Irish Setter brand boots. I would still look into a 200gram Thinsulate for the cold mornings. Water proof depends on your environment. If you know that where you hunt you are going to stay dry, than don't make it a concern. Should you think you will be rained on and walk through morning dew, then it should be a strong consideration.
