    Hunting Boots wanted

    Hey guys, first post on here.
    Im new to hunting and just purchased my new shooter to get out there and get some more experainces.

    Im now looking for a pair of boots however budget not big enough to purchase some new quality ones.

    Budget is only around $200-$300 max (wife putting foot down) so from the research ive done thats not gana really get me some quality ones.
    Hoping someone may have a quality pair they no longer require for one reason or another.

    I know the old motto buy once, cry once but unfortunatly i havnt found the money tree yet. Ha ha

    Im about a size 46/47 in andrew boots, usually a us 12/uk 11.

    Please flick me a txt on 0223847967 if you have any thinv i could be intrested in.

    Cheers in advance

    Welcome Crispo, I think if you add up all the shoes etc your missus has and never wears you will be on the plus side even spending $500± check out trade me often good deals for larger or smaller than average size boots no good if you are a 10-10.5 like me

    @Sarvo has some fantastic deals on barely used top brand boots tho usually in smaller sizes, be worth keeping an eye on the for sale thread.

    personally I wear ashley lace up gumboots for 90% of my hunting and love them.

    Might be worth a phone call to Southern Adventure (the Scout shop) in Invercargill. They’ve had a 25% off sale and if you have specific size details it might be worth a go....
    A lot of the DoC and forestry staff buy kit there.

    I reckon if you put your gear in a list and tried too put it in order of importance (ie: worth spending good money on) then rifle/optics and boots would all be fighting for the top spot
