    Default What is the best pair of boots you ever owned for hunting pheasants?

    What is the best pair of boots for sale for pheasant hunting in South Dakota ? Lightweight and waterproof with a little insulation.

    Danner Ft. Lewis. Mine are tan nubuck leather, like for desert duty, and Gortex lined. Not sure if they're made anymore other than in duty black.

    In a few weeks I fly from CA to SD for a 4 day hunt. I hope that my answer to your question is my new Irish Setter Havoc's that I just bought!

    Just weeks ago, I bought Irish Setter Elk Tracker 885's. A little too early to tell, but so far I REALLY like them. They could very well be the greatest boots ever.

    I take it they are similar to mountain boots which normally have added support around the ankles? Are they stiff?

    Here's a link. https://www.irishsetterboots.com/USD....htm#tabGroup2

    I don't know about additional ankle support, but they're pretty light & and surprisingly NOT stiff!!! (at least as far as toe flexing goes) To me, they're amazingly comfortable. A little aggressive on the sole, but......no dang seams on the toe to wear out in 2 seasons!!! And beauty being in the eye of the beholder....they're kind of cool looking.

    Also, the tongue opens up really far. Just undo the hooks plus 1 eyelet worth of laces & your foot practically glides in or out. They're super easy on & off. Don't even need to use the puller-onner loop on the back.

    I have run through my share of Irish Setters, but have moved away from that brand. My current light weight pheasant and ruffed grouse boot is a Cabela's branded boot. I have worn these boots now for about 5 seasons. First pair started to leak (Gore Tex) liner in the third season and Cabelas replaced them free. They have a lifetime warranty on their own branded gear and if the boots are take care of and in reasonable shape will honor that warranty.

    They might be discontinued Quite a bit of change as Bass Pro moves their own gear (example Red Head) into Cabela's.
