didnt know where to put this thread.
but i have a hunting scouting trip coming up in a few weeks. gonna take advantage and catch trout while i'm there.
we hired a horse team to ride us in as far as we can go in a day with enough time for the cowboy to get back out in a reasonable time. from there we jump off the horses, put on our packs and walk the rest of the way. when done, we wall all the way out. it will be ugly.
i am not a super-fan of horse riding. i do remember hiking boots in stirrups are foolish. thinking of buying cheap ropers, and letting the cowboy bring them back down for a $10 spot.
think cowboy boots are a neccesity? or save the money?
