I am in the market for new hunting boots. The last pair I had were just okay and cost around $150. I used them every time I went out for 2 season. One thing I didn't like is that they weren't waterproof enough. Insulation was okay on them, being in the upland and working my toes were never the worry. Although, I do use those boots for deer hunting and my toes were frozen. I am looking for strictly a sturdy upland boot that you guys trust and have used.
