    I’ve worn Cabela’s rubber boots for a long time. Uninstalled and insulated.
    On average I get bout 3 years out of em with hard mountain hunting. Had my 800gr split yesterday.
    Thinking bout looking into the Irish setters or Lacrosse.
    The ones that use em which do you recommend?

    I have no experience with Irish Setter.

    I’ve always used Lacrosse. I just bought a new pair of 18” Burly boots from Rural King on Black Friday. Shipped to the house for $65. The Burly has foam insulation but it ain’t much. I needed a new pair because I wore the heels down on my others, so I get good use out of mine.

    I’ve used tire patches on them before and get a few more years use.

    Muck Boots. As comfortable as tennis shoes, and last a long, long time.

    No, the neoprene foam RUBBER does not hold more scent than regular boots. It's still rubber.

    I’m not a fan of
    Lacrosse. I’ve used muck for quite a while and tried a pair of
    Lacrosse boots last year because I caught them on sale. I found muck to be much more comfortable and warm. Also, the sole already started coming off of the lacrosse boots. I usually get 3-5 years out of muck

    Lacrosse has great prices on some of their Burly and Aeroheads on their website right now. I’ve worn Aeroheads for 3 years now and still going strong. Just ordered an extra pair because of the pricing.

    I got some 600 gram UA rubber boots I got a good deal on on eBay. Great for turkey season and through early ML but when you’re sitting still your feet will get cold. Think I’m gonna get some nice 1000 + gram lace ups in the off season. My dad says it’s more about the socks. Most wool I can find is like 70% but he has some ancient 100% all wool socks and if he goes above a 400 gr boot his feet sweat off. He’s 76 and has poor circulation.

    I have tried them all. Mucks is all I buy. They never let me down and last for years. Keep my feet warm.

    Another issue I have is some tree trunk calves on me. I can tuck maybe a thin pair of early season pants in mine but heavier late season stuff no way. Always thought one of the advantages of rubber boots is tucking stuff but not the case with me.

    I can not in good conscience recommend any rubber boots including the mucks I own, just another thing we have all been convinced over the years we can't without.. I wear rocky full cordura boots when hunting and have since they came out and before that I always bought Browning leather boots.
