I remember that day. We didn't shoot much, either. Still a nice day.
I've been on a number of hunts like that. Even if the animal count is down, the memories of those crappy days where you scratch your head and wonder "what the hell am I doing out here?", really stand out years later. To share in the misery with a hunting companion just adds to the experience!

I just bought a new pair of the Elite insulated zip outs from Rogers and they have a new boot thats part neoprene and part rubber that looks like it will solve the cracking. I talked to one of the specialists there and he explained the whole process plus they are a 1200 thinsulate so not as bulky as the 1600 boot but he assured me they're every bit as warm. I've worn them twice and they are a lot more comfortable then the old boots. Here's a picture of the new versus old.

They appear to be the same material as the Lacross Aero Elites I got. I have been extremely happy with them so far.

Like everyone else I have tried several brands of waders and am yet to find one that lasts very long. I like the idea of the LL Bean, but there warranty is no longer what it used to be. I have tried hunting in stocking foot waders and have a real nice pair in my quiver of waders now. They are great for the walking part, but when the weather turns cold, I have never been able to keep my feet warm once I stop walking and start hunting. I am stongly considering the Sitka Waders.
