Re: Cold weather boots
Hard to keep anything warm in MN when it gets really cold. For tree stand hunting, I'd look at a pair ArcticShieldŽ Boot Covers. They are made for tree stand hunting. You don't walk to your tree stand in them but rather, put them on once you're in your stand. I don't have a pair, but I do use ArcticShield clothing (pants and jacket) and they are light weight and warm.
Start young, hunt hard, and enjoy God's bounty!
