Boots will be used for mainly rabbit and squirrel hunting, spring turkey and fall scouting.
These days, I like Solomon and Belleville desert boots personally but mainly because that’s what I’ve mainly worn for the last 15 years…
Oboz Yellowstone Premium Mid Waterproof Hiking Boots - Men's | REI Co-op
If warmer weather a non gore-tex version that is lighter and cooler.
Oboz Sawtooth II Mid Hiking Boots - Men's | REI Co-op
For snow or wet grass I add these.

Me too. I wore mine in the field on FTXs, wasn't allowed to wear them in garrision. I have several pairs of boots to choose from for light upland; a pair of Keens, a pair of Hi-Tec, a pair of Walmart "Winchester" light thinsulate camo boots, a pair of Irish Setters Chukkas, and Reed knee-length and Skellerup Quattro knee boots for wetlands.
I am looking at them but primarily using for rabbit hunting and afraid the tread won’t be enough for climbing creek banks and small hills.
But this comes down to the shape of your feet.
Mine are long with high arches.
Danners were my favorites for a long time. I still love them. Just too rich for my blood. When I wore them for work, they were one make I could get more than one year of wear out of.
The original Wingshooters came out in the 1940’s and quickly became the hunting boot to have back then.
I got sold on Danner's after I bought my 1st pair of Ft. Lewis boots while in Germany.
