I love hunting.
It’s just May and I’m ready to hit the road.
The anticipation of getting back in the woods and mountains to film and hunt whitetail deer and elk is a huge part of my love for hunting.
The preparation is half the fun.
Planning and scouting is what fuels the fire.
We tediously go over gear to ensure we have the best we can afford.
We sling arrows daily if not weekly to practice our form, effective range and groupings.
We talk to other die-hard hunters daily on Twitter, Facebook, blogs and forums because we found people who are just as passionate as we are.
The silence of the woods is soothing, therapeutic even.
Watching and getting close to a deer or elk is heart pounding.
It’s not a hobby.
It’s not a seasonal sport.
It’s a lifestyle.
I love hunting.
Last season while filming Elk Hunters for #Elktour, I destroyed my older Keens that were not meant for hiking up and down mountains.
So I wanted to find a light pair of waterproof boots that would stand up to this years Elk hunts for #Elktour 2.
I read a number of threads where folks used these very same boots for their early season elk hunts and was thrilled when I saw them at today’s REI tent sale.
I can’t wait to go scouting with them.
So if you’re looking for early season archery elk boots, consider some light hikers like these. You don’t really need traditional heavy weight hunting boots, especially insulated ones. Non-insulated should work just fine in the early August and September elk hunting seasons like we have here in Colorado.
You can find them and similar boots on sale at REI and at Sierra Trading Post.
By the way, I also have a pair of Inov8 Roclite 400′s which I will use as well as these Keen’s. My feet, which were black and blue last year, will be feeling great this season.
