Cabelas Snowy Ridge Boot?

I need to replace my old Sorel pac boots,and was looking at Cabelas Snowy Range 1200 pac boots.Any opinions on this boot? Any suggestions for a late season duck hunting/ice fishing boot? Thanks for any info.

You will get a ton of opinions on this so i will give you mine. If you are looking at the Cabelas brand of boots that could work both for late hunting and ice fishing i have an idea for you. I am very sensitive to cold and survived very easily (0 to -20 most ice trips) the ice fishing season here in North Dakota with the Cabelas 8 point hunting boots. They have 1000 grams of thinsulate and work well for late season hunting. They need a little break in time. Start out a little stiff but settle down nicely and i only spent 80 bucks for them. I was in the same hunt last year for a new boot. No need to look else where.

New Micky/Bunny boots. I have the white ones and never had cold feet. Fished in 25 below with no shelter and the feet were warm and toasty. Now my hands were another story.LOL

These are excellent boots for the money. I bought a pair 4 years ago and have used them elk and whitetail hunting, ice fishing, shoveling, snowmobiling, pretty much anything outdoors. This past winter I noticed my feet where getting wet after a few hours on the ice. I think it's coming in through the seams. For $100 you can't go wrong.

    • Just said he's been down a long time.....hours. Guess it's a dead rescue. Every friggin' year...it ought to be MANDATORY that you carry and use a spud when venturing out on the ice...or wear one of the ice fishing suit PFD's. 
    • academic research.  Maybe some day, but for now I would say walleye in stores and restaurants comes from netting in Canada.   Or is zander from Europe... 
    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
