I have talked with a few friends and they recommended the Danner Pronghorns so I will take a look at them possibly this weekend at Cabela's.

I have several pairs of boots and like each of them for different things. I have some high sanke boots, by Rocky, that I've had for many years. They are very comfortable and comforting when I'm hunting the snake infested cliffs here in Southern Illinois. I have a pair of Danner boots that are light but very sturdy that I wear a lot in the spring and early fall.

I also have a pair of LaCrosse rubber boots that are great in the snow and goose pits and another pair that are well insulated for deer hunting.

Each of them have a place and work very well for what they were intended.

Lastly, I have an old pair of Nike boots that my son gave me many years ago that I wear around our place when I'm mowing or doing work in the trees and just about anything else. They are very well broken-in (Doris says worn out) but as long as they stay together, I'm keeping them.

Thanks,
Clark

I like the L.L.Bean boots and when the weather turns cold I wear them with the shearling and thinsulate lined version.
When the snakes are out I wear the Danner Snake Boot.

I started wearing snakeboots several years ago. I normally don't run into many snakes but the comfort and protection from high wet grass and thorns is great on protecting my legs and keeping me warm. Rockey Boots

Just got a new pair of BOGS copperhead 18" snake boots today. They are a combination of waterproof rubber style boots with the protection of snake boots built in, they also have the antimicrobial odor proofing as well. Time will tell if they are going to be comfortable for long walking, they felt great in the store. I got them for a number of reasons, but one main reason was that I was able to tuck in my hunting pants comfortably unlike some of the other snake boots I tried (they are zipper style too).

I wear Lacrosse Burleys 90% of the time unless I'm out west.

I turkey hunt in uninsulated rocky cordura goretex lace up boots with a side zipper. For deer hunting I have three pair of lacrosse alpha burly's one uninsulated, one with 800g of thinsulate, and one with 1200g of thinsulate. Each does a great job and i change them out for the weather conditions depending on how cold it will be.

I decided to get the Danner Pronghorn with 400 grams of thinsulate. I figured they would be better than the 800 grams of thinsulate which I was worried would get to warm in the spring. I used them in Montana pheasant hunting and they were great. I will also use them again this weekend fall turkey hunting.
