Iíve always just wore my insulated hips for summertime beaver work. Usually when it gets hot the calls slow down some. Doesnít appear to be gonna happen this year. Iím tired of taking them off and being wet from sweat. Looking for a light weight, yet fairly tough option. Iíve had a couple pair of the rubber boots with chaps attached to them. Seems like they were called ďfroggersĒ, or something like that. Used them in my coon hunting days. They werenít very tough back then. Maybe you all know of something better.
How about it fellow summer beavermen?

When u find a good brand let me know. Ahh, nevermind, I need the thicker Lacrosse Outriggers to at least stop shorter fangs.

Killed 2 cottonmouths about an hour ago while inspecting a potential beaver job. The biggest one .....48" er and big as my forearm...was almost stepped on...pulled back and opened that mouth on me. I beat him down after I levitated for a couple seconds.

Took 3 more steps and there was another....30" er and big as 2 fingers....he died too.

Today was 1st day that Ive even considered a beaver job since March. Didnt take but a short walk thru a jungle-like bottom to get on those 2 pretty quick.

Here's one of those 2... [Linked Image]

Dans hip boots with Muck boot lowers are the most comfortable, durable ones out there. I wear them in the sweltering heat and sometimes forget that I have them on. They area also available with lacrosse lowers. I never tried those.
They may seem to be on the pricey side, but you will wear the soles off of them before you ever ruin the uppers. I trap year round and have gotten 3 or more years out them. I have been using them for over 15 years and have only bought three pair in that time. The denier fabric uppers are very likely snake proof, They are certainly greenbrier-proof.

X2Öthe uppers will out last the boot. Iíve snagged them on barbed wire and they still donít leak. I use and abuse they are good.
