With the cold weather upon us, it is important to have the proper clothing when you set out on your weekend hunting trip.

Just like the importance of safety when using your equipment, you must understand the safety factors when it comes to your clothing.

Wearing lightweight warm clothing is a must, and that is no different for the boots you choose to wear.

You will want to choose a pair of boots that are well insulated and waterproof, with a secure, rubber sole.

You will want to be sure the boots are not only warm and dry, but you will want to be sure they are rugged enough to fight through unexpected brush and debris.

Be sure the size of the boots fit properly to avoid blisters, and choose something with plenty of flexibility and thickness.
