A wise man once said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." In other words, taking the proper precautions is better than dealing with the aftermath of a disaster. When it comes to turkey hunting in dangerous, snake-infested territory, that pound of cure is a $20,000 helicopter ride to the nearest hospital with anti-venom after getting clipped in the calf by a cotton-mouth all because you weren't wearing snake boots.
It's far better to be prepared while turkey hunting in snake country. We recommend the Guide Gear Country Pursuit 16 Waterproof Side-zip Snake Boots.
They offer top-to-bottom bite protection thanks to the Snake Guard fabric, which prevents penetration by most North American snake species. Snake Guard is nearly impenetrable and super tough, but still flexible enough to cover more ground.
Of course, snake protection is only half the battle. What good are snake boots if they aren't comfortable? It's simple. They're no good at all.
That's why Guide Gear Country Pursuit Boots are outfitted with premium Guide Dry waterproof/breathable technology, designed from the ground up to provide the max in dry comfort while maintaining breathability. The membrane features tiny pores that keep larger waterproof molecules from getting in while allowing much smaller vapor molecules to escape so there's none of that stuffy discomfort found on cheap waterproof methods. Guide Dry is tested and proven to perform at the highest level, and will retain its water-blocking properties long after other waterproof technologies begin to leak.
Guide Gear Country Pursuit Boots also come equipped with OrthoLite insoles. OrthoLite open-cell foam insoles are ultra-comfortable, highly breathable, moisture-wicking, and resistant to compression. Even after long-term wear, they hold their shape so the comfort and fit NEVER change. The open-cell foam is 95% to 100% breathable, allowing air to circulate in and around the foam, keeping the Boot interior cooler. When you DO work up a sweat, open-cell Foam wicks away moisture to keep you comfortable.
Long story short, you can count on reliable snake protection, sure-dry comfort, and second-to-none cushioning to make your turkey hunts better than ever.
