Did anyone else used to put your feet in bread sacks between a couple pairs of sox?
I never would have had the opportunity to have quaity boots back then. I had tube socks and old shoes. We only got one new pair of shoes a year and that was the week before school started. If you wore your good shoes out hunting, you got your back side tanned.
I remember having one pair of wool socks (hand-me-downs) and they were huge.
The plastic bread sack between a tube sock and one of those big wool socks was just what the hunting doctor ordered for wet hunting in the winter.
When I was gearing up to go out, this made me feel like I was Grizzley Adams. Now, I just want to be Chuck Adams.
Yes, I do buy gortex now and have nice insulated, weather-proof clothing. Camo is plaid wool when possible.
