What Muck boot is good for hunting in 15-35 degree weather?

Also do these boots keep you warmer than say the rubber lacrosse boots since the breathe?

In my opinion they do not breathe at all. My feet sweat and will always be wet inside of my muck boots. I have the arctic pro boot and I’d say that’s appropriate for the temps you stated. Get a half size larger.

Since the muck/humans society thing I haven’t bought any, and I like my lacrosse better anyway. But if you get cold the arctic sports are warm, hot actually, and I sweat in them too much.
A pair of darn tough socks and I’m good to go in pretty much any temp.

I used the woody max for several years, warm dry boot if you size it right, as others have stated hot and sweaty if you walk very far.

My favorite Muck boots are Muckmasters (I like mid cut). They are warm enough for the temp in your post but you can wear them in warmer weather too. I also have the high cut Arctic Sport. I rarely wear them because they are too warm for most of what I do.

Go with a thinner muck boot. Then add some Arctic Shield boot covers when it gets really cold!!

None of them breathe...

About the best boot if you like that style. Personally, I like a my Danner Pronghorn 1000 gram for cold weather and my Danner Pronghorn 400 for warm weather. You don't need a rubber type boot for deer hunting unless you are wading through water. I have 2 pair of Muck Woody Max and 2 pair of Lacrosse Alpha Burly's that I very seldom wear anymore. And a pair of Cabela's version of the Woody Max.

Personally, my feet freeze in Muck boots in freezing temperatures. They make my feet sweat and sweat against your toes is a sure fire recipe for cold feet.

A lot of guys like rubber boots for deer hunting for scent control.

Quality wool socks are needed in cold (this is 100% true of any boot, and all warm boots will cause feet to sweat even if they "breathe" it's not like there is much of any actual "breathing" happening. Socks are the key). That said, my Woody max are what I wear for anything below 25 degrees including icefishing and late season hunting at below zero temps. I've had mine for 10 years now, and with some shoe-goo where some tears have occured from rough use, they are doing well. My next pair I will go with the black/farm versions instead of camo for at least a $40 savings Arctic Sport I believe, is the Woody-max equivalent.

Gonna be different for everyone.

My mucks my feet/lower legs get damp...even with the best of Merino wool. The way the top is designed is like a seal on my calfs. Wife...not a problem as her calfs are alot smaller and she has air space.

I only wear mine if its real wet. They sit in the back of the truck the other 360 days a year...I hate rubber boots...:zip:

I'm the same way I won't ever buy their products again. Why support a company trying to eliminate what your buying their boots to do? I went Lacrosse and I'm very happy.
