    I was just looking through a Sportsman Guide catalog and seen some Rocky boots that was "factory seconds" for less that half the original price. Now I don't see anything wrong with factory seconds and I was wondering if someone of you that might be interested, in helping me put our net surfing skills to the test and find some sort of outlet or website that sells factory seconds in general hunting gear. Such as clothes, boots, maybe even equipment. But anyway I will start looking and if I find anything I will post. [:)]

    My son purchased some seconds from some outlet in Bowling Green. Several cleats on the sole broke off. Must have had a problem with the sole and thats what made that particular boot a second. He didn't save any money on that deal.

    I contribute quite a bit to the Sportsman's Guide. Including 3 pair of Rocky boots that I caught good deals one. I have a Ducks Unlimited version of their rubber boots. I have a heavily insulated "pac-type" boot. Finally, a standard pair of their Wildcat version (I think that is the one). Overall, I purchased them from probably 2 - 5 years ago and haven't had any problems with any of them. However, I have heard other experiences similar to raktrakr's on this site before.

    Related to Sportsman's Guide, overall, you can find some really good deals on their clearance items, but you should compare their other prices as I found better deals on some things elsewhere.

    Given the luck of the draw, I will soon be using my gift certificate (and I'm sure contributing more than that!) with our proud sponsor Uncle Lee's! Sounds like a good road trip to me!
    Good luck.
