December 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #57: Fitting a Hunting Boot

Tip of the Week

Never choose a pair of hunting boots because they match the pattern on your camo jacket. Hunters need to carefully consider how the boots will be used. Hunting boots made for walking have solid sole and ankle support. Models made for rough terrain have large lugs and a flexible sole. The fabric needs to breathe to let perspiration out. The lacing system needs to run all the way up the boot in a tight weave. D-rings are preferable. They allow the hunter to pull the boot tighter. Hunting boots used in muddy areas need thick sole and shorter lugs. Insulated rubber boots may work well in the fall, but a boot with a waterproof upper is more suited for summer months.
