    What socks to wear for summer

    Hi there.had some merino woolen socks on last weekend as that's what I have in the sock drawer. Got quite hot feet.

    Does anyone wear cotton socks hunting or do you fellas just tolerate the hot feet.

    Cheers.

    Go for gumdals mate. There is no need for socks when you are rocking your gumdals.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I wear my laceup gummies all year round and in summer months takem off when stopped to glass etc and let socks air/dry a tad...seem to remember leather boots were just as bad on hot day....ALWAYS have fresh socks each day ...as sergent Dan would say "you got to look after your feet"
