In my opinion, I've never gone through a day of hunting and thought "Damn i wish these comfortable boots were lighter. 100 percent check out the Crispi Nevada, Lowa Ranger, and Lowa Tibet. All three of those boots are going to get you through 99.9% of the hunting i would do. What kind of terrain are you going to be hunting? What time of year? and how often will you be in wet weather?
