    I have two sets of Boots. I wear Redwing Irish Setters for cold or wet weather and Ariat Conquest for warm weather. I highly recommend both.

    Danner Pronghorns or the new Danner Alseas. Probably give a nod to the Alseas as they fit me a little better and have been awesome so far this season.

    I love my Meindl I purchased from Cabelas, has not leaked or caused any regrets. I have a set of Muck field blazers that are now leaking from the heel. It must be from the -20 degree pheasant hunts out in Minnesota here, the cold and flexing can take a toll on these boots and these just weren't built to last.

    Get a set of Arctic Shield boot covers a light/medium pair of merino wool hiking socks and Uninsulated hiking boots and say goodbye to cold feet. Put them on as soon as you get to the stand. Throw a hand warmer in the cover on the really really cold days.

    This combination kept my feet just fine for more than 4 hours at 10 degrees and a wind chill of zero. Also if you do end up walking a ways you don’t have to worry about sweaty feet as much and it’s easier walking.

    I love my Danner Pronghorns and High Grounds. Both are an awesome boot and extremely comfortable

    It’s all about weight for me , I bought a pair of Cabelas boots, over $200 but warm light, perfect.

    I'm still wearing my rubber Cabela's Comfort Trac boots I bought 14 years ago. still comfortable and like new. 800 grams of insulation is plenty for the fall and winter months in Ohio.

    The most comfortable hunting boots I've ever worn are my LaCrosse from Camofire. $90. Wish I had bought two pair ![​IMG]
    These are just walking throught the woods and sitting on stand boots of course, but they are comfy!
    Buy good leather hiking boots made in Europe.
    China made boots will be crap, no matter what brand name.

    I bought and used Irish Setter Men's 882 Elk Tracker Waterproof boots for the deer season and liked them because they were large; they felt truly nice on my legs and held their shape well.
    The overall model is great, the speed trim hauls are substantial, and they will prove to be durable for sure as you can see in this professional review: http://huntingfishingplus.com/best-elk-hunting-boots/
    If you want to wear thick socks underneath, you might need to upsize a bit. With medium thickness socks, they fit me somewhat tightly at first yet the boot appeared to adapt to my feet slowly so I was content with the fit in the end.
    Strolling in the forested areas through snow, mud, and ice was quite easy in them and the footing was exceptional and solid.

    I like waterproof Keens for Sep elk season, they are one of the most comfortable I've ever worn. I switch to 800 gram Rocky's when it gets colder and wetter, but my new set of Rocky's aren't as comfortable or hold up in keeping feet dry near as well as my older set did. Will try something else next time. I also have a set of Muck boots for really wet weather and for putting in mock scrapes...they are meh. Not the most comfortable to walk in, they are flat out horrible to drive in so I wear a different shoe until leaving the pickup, and not all that warm when in the stand in November.

    Zamberlin Guide 960 GTX is my boot of choice if it's wet. Great traction and waterproof. I mean, really water proof even walking through tall water soaked grass which most boots that say they're waterproof, aren't. Deer season out here it's usually so warm I could wear flip-flops so usually just a very light boot that's more like a running shoe.

    Interesting here. My son has worn Danner boots for years for work. He likes the support of the high tops as he is on his feet a lot each day. He had an interesting situation when he bought his first pair. The store clerk was showing him several brands of boots. However, he stated that unless you can repair the soles, the boots with molded soles can't be resoled. I related this to our local shoe repair shop. The fellow was surprised that someone would say that. He has had men bring in $200 boots and asked to be resoled. He tells them the soles are molded on at the factory and can't be fixed.
