    Ronny let me follow him on many horse calls and assist on gelding horses, always got stuck holding the bucket with the horse's nutz after they were clipped, always remembered the shiny chrome emasculator,looked like an oversized pecan cracker.

    Great, American made hunting boots can be found here: http://www.russellmoccasin.com/main.html

    They make a zillion different kinds, all custom from the type of leather to the style of sole and other options, and are made in a little shop about an hour from me. Check out their sale items....you can buy some awesome boots at a big discount. I love mine...they are pricey, but worth every penny and can be reworked/resoled/repaired forever. They sell hunting boots all over the world, and when you go into their tiny little shop, your measurements are taken and written down in an old, well-worn ledger book. True custom craftsmanship. (and no, they didn't pay me to say all this...they just make really great boots)

    Those look awesome.....looks like Wisconsin is the last state that actually produces stuff for the American outdoorsmen..We get some Predator camo stuff from Gray Wolf Woolens, have worn their jacket while bow hunting and its the warmest jacket I have

    Gray Wolf is great, too. I love their stuff.

    The Russell company has made boots for presidents, heads of state, and famous hunters world-wide....they are pretty well known. So it's always fun when an out of state visitor is here and we go over to the shop....they are always shocked because for all its fame, it is very tiny, has no display, and is stuffed full of boots, shoes and the people crafting them. There is no big sign, fancy storefront, etc., just a tiny old boot factory where you talk to real people rather than computers.

    I could not agree more on the Russell Moccasin Company. I have two pair of boots and they are fantastic. The first pair are going on 20 years old, with proper maintenance they last forever! Two years ago I wanted speed lacing studs added in place of the eyelets which they did for about $7.00. They are a great company and their customer service is the best of any company I have dealt with.
