Best Rubber Hunting Boots of 2017

by | Jun 9, 2017 | Reviews

When you’re hot on the trail of landing that trophy buck you’ve been waiting all year for, not even a boot full of water on a cold day is going to stop you – but it’s definitely going to slow you down. That old pair of black rubber boots with the red bottoms that we all grew up with just isn’t going to do the job.

There’s an old saying that says you should invest the most money in anything that comes in between yourself and the ground. For example, things like mattresses, tires for your vehicle, and footwear. In this case, we’re talking about rubber hunting boots in particular.

Let’s be real. No serious hunter is going to let a bit of discomfort ruin their trip, but the difference between a perfect pair of boots that will keep you warm and dry and with a solid footing on any terrain, or a pair that’ll have you freezing and sliding all over the place with a boot full of water isn’t a huge amount of money. This is the type of thing where you buy it properly once, the first time, and you’re all set for years to come.

These boots are the real deal. LaCrosse makes some of the best boots for hunting, and they come with a variety of camo patterns for both men and for women.

3. Original Muckboots

Our Rating: 4.6 Stars (4.6/5)
Waterproof Materials
Material Rubber and Fabric
Reinforced Shank

Muck Boots are a very popular brand, and their hunting line is very decent, and also quite affordable. They’re a great value option, but also a great overall option too. They’re a strong contender in the mid-range, which is great for most people, and they also look good enough to wear as regular rubber boots – they’re not just for taking on hunting trips.

4. Bogs Men’s Bowman

Waterproof Hunting Boot

Our Rating: 4.5 Stars (4.5/5)
Material Rubber and Textile
Weight 2.6 lbs per boot
Scent Combat biotechnology

These boots are fully water proof, about 14.5” from the arch to the top, very light weight, and puncture proof because they can help prevent a snake bite or whatever else might be getting in your way as you stomp through the woods.

thread on the bottom helps you keep your grip if you’re walking through swamps. These boots are relatively light when compared to other boots, but still pretty heavy and durable in the grand scheme of things.

5. Baffin’s

Men’s Rubber Hunting Boot

Our Rating: 4.2 Stars (4.2/5)
Material Rubber
Cold Rating Rated to -40 Degrees Fahrenheit
Price  $

This is the least expensive pair of boots that we’re going to be featuring in this guide. They’re quite basic, but they get the job done. You can tighten them up at the top. Many pairs have a zipper on the back for such a purpose, these ones just have a simple lace to tie up on the front. If you’re just looking for a pair to toss in the trunk or the truck just in case, they’ll do you just fine. If you know ahead of time that you’re going to be trekking through some really nasty land, you’ll want to pick something higher end – but in a pinch, these will work. They’re not out top pick, but we wanted to include something for people that are looking to save a bit of cash. Just remember, if you’re going to be in rough territory, you’ll be glad you invested in the best pair of boots that you can afford.
