Which rubber boot?

9 posts in this topic

Just was wondering which rubber boot everyone is wearing. I am due to get a new pair next season and would like some opinions. I currently own the Alpha Burly Sport. I am real curious about the new Dream Season Boot. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yea- Dont get the muck boot. I have had 2 pairs rip or get holes in them and 2 of my hunting buddies each had a pair do the smae thing. I would go with the alphaburleys

I second the Alpha Burleys, I have the 1000 gram and they work good all season and have held up very well.

The only rubber boot I have found that seem to fit my feet right are the fanatic boot at Gander. They seem like they are a good boot and should be plenty warm for late season bow and ice fishing.

I'm on my 9th season with my Bean boots... when it gets colder I'll make the switch into my Muck's. I've got some Lacrosse that are great for December but you wouldn't want to walk much with them. Pretty clunky.

Ive got the Lacrosse alphas. They are probably the most comfortable rubber boot i've ever worn, fairly light, tough, and i've done quite a bit of hiking in them actually. he soles are good and grippy and feel some what like a tennis shoe inside.

i also have the lacrosse alphas and love them very comfy.

i thought about the scent blocker boots but they look like they are leak prone.

i have the scent blocker boots and have walked threw puddles and cricks and have not had a problem with leakage. but i hear the alphas are also extremely nice boots

    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
