A: Let’s answer this one with relation to hunting only. We’ll break it down to two seasons, September – mid October, and Mid October to the end of November.
September – Mid October – We would suggest a light comfortable hiking boot that covers up to your ankles. For those dewy mornings where the grass is wet, or rainy days, we all use the likes of Muck or Lacross water proof boots, that are light and comfortable to walk in. Rain pants and coats are a must, however we encourage hunters to do their homework and bring gear that is also quiet. Beneath the outer-wear, layers are a great way to go. Remember, you could go from stalking your giant bull, to sitting for several hours waiting for the herd to go by your blind.
Mid October – End of November – Typically the ground is not as wet during this time as precipitation has frozen, and we would likely have snow. A pair of insulated hiking boots with water resistant capabilities is likely the way to go. Heavier outer clothing that will provide wind and thermal protection is a must. Remember your gloves and toque!
