Timberland boots aren't a very good boot. They're your feet, but I've never found Timberlands to be very warm, or waterproof. Good boots are expensive, but they are also worth it. I bought a pair of Rocky's Corn-Stalkers (I think that's the model) in 1988. The lug sole is still in good shape, and they're still very warm and dry. IMHO Boots are the most important piece of equipment on a hunt.
