My step father is a deer hunter. He spends a lot of time trekking through the woods really early in the morning before the sun comes up. Needless to say, you're nt always sure what you're going to be stepping in under those conditions. I am thinking about getting him some Hunting Boots this Christmas. I think that would really make his day. Either that or hiking boots, although I'm not sure what the difference is. And if I spend over $100 I get free shipping, which is always nice he should like it more than the gloves I got him last year.!
