I am looking at buying some rubber boots for early season and for middle season what do people recommend for thinsulate does it matter if you have 1200 gram boot for early season someone please explain the heat index for rubber boots.

I have a pair of non-insulated that I use for early season and then when the below freezing temps hit I switch to my 1200 gram. Your feet might get a little warm using the 1200 gram early season but it shouldn't be too bad. My 1200 gram will keep the feet warm in the teens temps if I'm moving a little bit.

I used non-insulated boots till about 20 degrees. As it got colder I wore wool socks with a poly pro liner. I am a warm person and my feet sweat even in below zero (too much info?!?). If you're an average person or get cold easily then the 800-1200 gram boots may be necessary. Once it got real cold I was wearing pak boots anyway.

I just bought two pairs of boots. One non-insulated pair and one 1200-gram. I got them for a great price -- they were last year's model. If you look around you can find some deals.

Yeah, I sorta bought the two and didn't tell her. When she saw them I told her of my, "heck of a deal."

Sometimes it works. Mostly not. wink.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

Hey Fishin58 I thought you had them deer down there trained. I doubt that Roger ever used any rubber boots his velcro's did the trick just fine.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
