Yes, We have Grizzly Bears, Wolves, and Mountain Lions in our area.
As scary as they can be we have yet to see any of them ruin a clients hunt,
but we have seen one thing stop a hunter in their tracks:
IMPROPER FOOT CARE
Some things to consider:
Purchase your boots to start breaking them in as soon as possible
Merino wool socks are breathable, odor resistant, moisture wicking and durable
There is always room for weatherproofing wax in a suitcase
The terrain we will be hiking through can be
steep and rugged with unpredictable weather causing blisters, bruised toe nails, and rolled ankles.
When choosing a boot consider
Good ankle support
The weight of each boot should be under 2lbs
