Not sure if this is the best place for this thread, but I thought maybe I could get some help here. I need some new boots for hunting/hiking and I want something quality that will last. I'm pretty tough on them; slogging through creeks, going up mountainsides, etc. To be expected, my boots always end up covered in mud, heavy and soaking wet. I want something that can handle that- relatively lightweight, completely waterproof, good ankle support and preferably something I can use year round for hiking. Also, interested to see any suggestions on a good hunting knife. I've also gone through a few of these. I want to be able to skin large game, like elk, without having to re-sharpen the blade every couple minutes. I'm looking in the moderate price range. Thanks for the help!
