There are many good products out there now that can keep your feet warm

Can you hunt in pac boots? I've never had cold toes since going from Sorel to LaCross Ice kings... wearing better but thinner socks and using Stick on toe warmers each day has made Zero cold toe days for over 15 years now.

Before that I wore two socks and Sorel boots I always had cold toes while hunting.

I have hunted in well below -20 degrees many times in the past, never had trouble. now with warmer boots even 30 degrees bothers my toes I had burned at Vikings game a year ago, they turn red or purple and swell up, hurts bad if I bump them or clip nails.
I think part of it could be my feet got bigger, same size boots could be too tight.
I got a pair of 2400 gr boots this winter, they seem better.
idk, haven't wore pack boots in 40 years
I'm wondering if I am loosing circulation in my feet, I have had trouble with my hands going numb about 28 years now

Congrats and good luck. I'm surprised they deliver them. When we draw we get an email and print them out.
