    Affordable Boots?

    I am looking for a new pair of boots for CO elk & deer season. I outfitted my son for his first hunt this year including a new rifle so I don't have allot of left over in the hunting funds.

    Any suggestions for decent pair of boots under $150.

    I've got a pair of Cabelas Outfitter boots I really love. Great boot at a great price.

    I've used high tech boots for hunting and they worked well for a softer sole. I wear them for work now. They are very comfortable with minimal breakin. $80

    Not sure what size you are but I have these for sale. Size 10 $200.00.


    REI sells Salewa if you want to check em out. I'm only selling them because I bought them a bit too tight. I ordered the exact same boots just 1/2 size larger. They sell for $348.00 on backcountry dot com.

    The Danner 452 GTX Hiker fits your budget. Good fit, good traction, average ankle support, average to poor laces, soles will wear out in year of everyday wear. Don't get the 453's.
    I went the economy route with hunting boots until one scouting trip out west. Now I wear Meindl Denali's and probably won't switch. 2yrs of everyday wear and the laces are just starting to die, ankle support is awesome, traction is great, price is on par for how long they last. YMMV

    I absolutely love my Danner Pronghorns in 8" with 400gm of insulation. On sale they'll run you $161 on Amazon right now. http://www.amazon.com/Danner-Mens-Pr.../dp/B004CFBB70

    That's only $11 over your budget. They are comfortable right out of the box and have a good tread with a stiff sole, which is what you want. They also have a tough material on the toe front and heel to keep from getting abrasion there. I rub in a lot of Ebenauer's in the leather uppers to get them as water-resistant as possible.

    Don't try to save money on boots with a set of Rockys or some other cheaper brand. You will wish you had spent a little more because your footing, your traction, your ankles, avoiding blisters and your overall comfort rely a great deal on solid, quality boots.

    I'll second that. For the price, my danner pronghorns have worked out fine. You will need to purchase the waterproofing gel after a lot of use(second to third season).

    I've got a pair of size 13 Kennetrek Mountain Extreme's I'd make a good deal on.

    Danner pronghorns are good. I also like my Under armor speed freak boots for bowhunting in warm weather. I recently purchased an upper end pair of boots that are great, but nothing wrong with the pronghorns. Danner has a website called hitthebreakroom.com that runs deals on danner and LaCrosse boots pretty often. Danners were going for 80 last week, but they may be sold out now. Worth a look anyway
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.
