    I'm not sure you are ever going to keep your feet warm all the time. To me it seems like the warmer the boots are at first the colder my feet get later b/c off all of the damn sweat. I just got a pair of LaCrosse Alpha Rackmaster and don't have any complaints this far into the game. Good luck!

    You could try wearing boots (uninsulated) that your feet won't sweat in while getting to your stand and then put the "good n thick" boot blankets on.
    I have a pair of them boot blankets also and I know they are good.

    Wool is king in my opinion for staying warm. I have King of the Mountain stuff I bought years ago. $$$$ but it is the difference of staying or going.

    It's been several years since I've been in a deer stand but I still go Pheasant hunting atleast for a week every year in Kansas and chasing pheasants in freezing, snowing, blowing wind and oh yea freezing rain can be challenging but different than still hunting in a stand.

    Hey man. I have some rocky 1000 gram boots and I love them. Last weekend it was 7 degrees where I hunt and I just had a pair of regular socks on and those boots n they stayed warm.

    Bibs- Arctic shield. Hands down. I wore these the same weekend. I just put on my rocky longhandles, those overalls and my coat and I was warm. Kinda high dollar but I'll never buy another kind of bibs again. Better get ready for the cold weather! Its snowin here
