    Antelope hunting boots

    I'm looking for some pronghorn hunting boots. Looking for something lightweight, breatheable, and highly resistant to cactus. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    I bought a pair of Danner Pronghorns (good name huh!) a couple of years ago that I really like. Pretty light, fit real well and very comfortable.

    I wear sneakers.. Lightweight, super comfortable, and very breathable.

    Ooh, cactus proof? I use Lowa Ranger Gtx for early season hunting, but I don't remember any mention of cacti resistivity. If you aren't already used to a stiff footbed, you may not like the Lowa-type boots.

    Yeah need something puncture resistant. I'm a barefoot guy but the barefoot boots I have the cactus goes through them like nothing.
