    I often hunt with high top rubber hunting boots due to where I hunt. We often have to cross creeks and wade through mud being in bottomland near the river. In the rainy season we could reach our stands by boat, but that’s another story. If any rubber boot users are on here I am asking for recommendations. I want a soft Neoprene top, cool, yet not real expensive rubber boot. Anyone?
    Tractor Supply has the Muck Edgewater on sale right now???

    Don’t forget to check eBay. May find a good deal.

    I wear Lacrosse Grange or Burly 18” boots most of the year. I like rubber boots with little to no insulation, but I walk while dog hunting. That keeps my feet warm.

    I’ve tried the Lacrosse neoprene boot. The Alpha I believe it is, but wasn’t impressed. I went back to plain old rubber boots. They work for me and most of the people I hunt with.

    don’t buy under armor they are junk, I’m allergic to neoprene so I’m stuck with the northerner rubber boots

    I have owned several pairs of muck boots thru the years, i'll recommend them, I will say though tractor supply is a little high on their Muck boots

    Muck hands down. Type varies on what insulation you may or may not need

    I bought a pair of the UA Haw’madillo from eBay last Fall. It is my first experience with rubber slip on boots. My issue is that I must have bigger than avg calves because I basically have no room to stuff anything in them beyond thin early Fall pants. I wouldn’t call mine junk but would definitely like to have something a little roomier.

    The only thing I don't like about mucks is the bottoms seem so stiff. But I've never owned a pair just tried on a pair. I guess they have to brake in like most.

    We might have just had a bad experience, bought a pair for my wife for coon hunting and the second time she wore them the soul was coming off the boot and leaking
