    Duct tape and fresh merino wool socks will keep me going for days!

    I hate to state the obvious but without a doubt, the most important thing is getting your feet in shape and wearing your boot/sock combination on MANY training hike sessions for months before the hunting seasons start. IMHO blisters should not even be on the radar during hunting season.
    If your feet are in shape, and you carry extra socks to change out during the day and especially when done hunting for the day, your feet should stay in great shape.

    I agree, Kenetrek recommends a 50 mile break in period. Most top notch boots that is normal.

    I forgot about clipping your toe nails, sounds girly but its very important.

    Manni and Peddi's are no longer for metro dudes and women, the outdoor adventurist who wants to save his puppies should highly consider taking care of those babies.

    Agreed - long nails can be really painful ten days into a hunt!

    Whoa there, partner. There's a big difference between chopping the nails with a lineman's pliers and going down to the salon for a "pedi"! I hereby revoke your man card for that statement!

    Assuming you have decent boots that fit and are broke in I think good quality socks are the most important. Also using the proper socks and boots for the weather you are hunting in is very important. Carry an extra pair of socks and change them if your feet get sweating to much. Never sleep with socks on, let your feet air out good at night. I always carry sports tape with me. If I do get a blister I will cut a piece of it and then cut a piece just bigger then the blister and stick it on the tape so the sticky part is not against the blister and it works pretty well.

    Extra socks are worth their weight a thousand times over. Almost as valuable as toilet paper IMO.

    Mani & pedis w/massages are a must along with barefoot walks on the beach with the sand acting as a natural exfoliate.
