Exactly and precisely what he said. ABS is the way to go.Shortbow said:If your not around a bunch of cactus then I highly recommend the Lacrosse Alpha Burly Sport. If you around cactus, then I would stick with snakeboots of some sort and keep them clean and sprayed down. I hunt in my ABS in east TX and they work great but in Llano and south TX I wear my snake boots. The deer in east TX seem a lot more skiddish to wear I walk with the snake boots but the hill country deer could care less. I have worn my ABS in Llano but I ended up pulling a lot of cactus thorns out of them.
