    I need boots

    Going on NM muzzleloader elk hunt in Dec. Nothing I own is probably up to the task. I hate to spend 400 bucks on a pair of boots that I'm gonna use one time and then might be 2 years before I get to go west again. I'm kinda limited here in SC to have places to try on kenetrek and such. I do...
