    Danner Pronghorns are excellent! I have the uninsulated version with a good synthetic sock and a good insole. Absolutely no complaints! There was a thread on this not to long ago, Good input from the guys on here.

    Lowa Tibets. Danners are a good choice for the cost.

    I love my Meindl Perfekt boots. Made in Germany for Cabelas. This is no bull. I bought them 6 years ago. I wear them 365 days a year. I scout the mountains 250 days a year ( i'm retired), plus my hunting, and daily wear. I'm still one the original soles. Even the original shoe laces. Which freaks me out. They have zero problems and are as solid and good looking as the day I bought them.
    I wear them through 2 feet of snow while hiking for hours. I never get cold, and I never get wet. I've even wading with them in low water fly fishing when I didn't think i'd need waders.

    Comfort is all you can ask for in boots. I went on a 10 mile hike when I first bought them, and they felt like been wearing them for a year. They needed no break in. It's the only boot I know off that endorsed by the American Podiatric Medical Association.

    Take a look, and read the reviews.

    gator,

    You are within a half days drive of Lathrop and Sons in Robinson, IL. They are suppose to have very good boots, Hanwag I believe is the brand and they specialize in custom insoles. They are expensive and they have a website you can check out. Sheel's in Springfield, IL carry Kenetreks and some other high quality boots. There is an REI store here in st. louis that is supposed to have some good boots. It all depends on what you want to pay. I personally prefer Lowa's. You can also check out Zappo's website and order a few different pairs and simply mail back the pairs you do not want; return shipping is free I believe. Danner pronghorns are definately a good boot. Whatever you do, do not skimp on boots and skimp on something else. You should try on as many pairs as you can before committing. Blisters will ruin a hunt real fast.

    I second the Kenetreks!!!! I could live in mine.

    But in reality, find something that is comfortable for you. I've noticed that a lot of people like one brand and others have complaints about that brand and so on... You are going to be the one hiking in then so do some research on some of the top brands and find which one makes your feet happy.

    Lowas Tibets for me it all comes down to your preference. It made it tough for me because there was not a local vendor that carried any of these boots.
