In Field and Forest
A hunting boot needs to go beyond the typical hiking boot. A popular choice for Baker’s customers are Rocky hunting boots, but depending on what kind of animals you like to hunt, you may need a rubber hunting boot or something tall and waterproof like a Muck hunting boot. Rocky hunting boots are a classic choice for sportsmen and women, and they even come in camouflage variations. Muck hunting boots are a classic field boot popular among duck and other small game hunters traversing wetland areas.
As a hunter, you need to be able to go where the animals go, whether it’s through a marsh, down into a ravine and up the other side, or down a game trail. You need something designed for carrying heavy loads for when you need to pack out your kill, but you don’t want something clunky that’s going to make a lot of noise. Plus, you might need to spend long hours tracking and covering miles of ground, so comfort is key. The LOWA Baffin Pro is a popular choice for hunters in dry climates, and the LOWA Boots Hunter GTX Extreme is great for big game hunters who need to be prepared for all conditions wet or dry.
