Muck rubber boots

Post by TN hunter on Wed Aug 08, 2012 8:01 pm

I just got the muck boots I ordered in the mail. I got the Expedition pro hunters they fit great! What are some of your experiences with mucks. I have heard they are better than lacross boots. Do they crack as bad? I won't start wearing them for several weeks. But they do look like there built late.

I have the Muck Wetland boots. Very warm boots, great for sitting all day in any weather! Everybody in my deer gang wears them for stand hunting! You will love them as long as you don't plan on doing a lot of walking in them...I wear tube socks on the way to my stand and then put my poly liners and wool socks on when I get into the stand.

I had a pair of woody macks. excellent boot. keeps your feet good and warm and they are pretty comfortable. But be warned, havent seen the new ones mine are older, and dont wear them anymore because of this. The inner layer of insulation does not wick moisure worth a flip and they are very hard to dry out, so in cold weather your feet will freeze if you dont dry them out before every hunt ( in cold weather) this got old to me so i swithched to lacrosse, they werent as bad as tha mucks about dryin out but wound up bein pretty worthless cause they fell apart and did not keep ma feet warm:) my solution to the boot drying ( didnt have on at the time) a boot dryer bout $20 at bass pro. but in the all around mucks are pretty dang good boots and 10 times more durable than lacrosse ( rocky,lacrosse,and muck is all ive everowned) . so get a boot dryer or a hair dryer works ok its just more work.

I've only owned a single pair of mucks when they first came out and did not have a pleasant experience with them. The terrain I hunt in has a lot of thorny underbrush such as greenbriar and buckvine. The neoprene uppers did not last a month and I ended up going back to my old faithful Lacrosse. I had my last pair of Lacrosse Alpha Sport for 4 years before having to replace them. I will be sticking with them. Granted most of my hunting is in Louisiana where the temps don't dip below freezing for extended periods of time, so the mucks may serve you better where you are.

Thanks for the info. As far as the wicking in the boots their new ones are supposed to wick much better due to new technology. I will definatley let you guys know. I wanted to post pics but I have to resize it and can't do it at work. So once i get a chance I will do so. Thanks again for the input. I do appreciate it. Very Happy

My cuz had the same experience - briars shredded the uppers in short order and they didn't handle the mud or walking long distance well. Those were some older ones though, they probably improved em.

I hope so they look pretty well built the heal in the back goes up the boot a pretty good ways. And the tred is pretty aggressive. I am trying to figure out a way to cover the top neoprene. I hunt south TN so it's hardwoods. There are briar's so I am gonna have to come up with a way to protect the neoprene at the top. There is a big guard on the front but there is plenty of room for the neoprene to get thrashed. I might just wrap some camo tape around it or something.

It may not be much of a problem. The stuff we hunt is a lot of bottomland hardwood clearcuts where most years the frost doesn't even kill the briars - so they get huge and super thick. If you're hunting open hardwoods with spotty briar patches you're probably alright.

I've used them for several years now and the past couple seasons I've used the wetlands boot. I really like the boots although mine didn't breathe well at all and I would sweat. I remember when they were $75, now I believe the wetlands model is around $120. I can't foot that bill anymore, but yes I like the ones I own, good boots.
