I'm looking for some pronghorn hunting boots. Looking for something lightweight, breatheable, and highly resistant to cactus. Do you guys have any suggestions?

I bought a pair of Danner Pronghorns (good name huh!) a couple of years ago that I really like. Pretty light, fit real well and very comfortable.

I wear sneakers.. Lightweight, super comfortable, and very breathable.

Ooh, cactus proof? I use Lowa Ranger Gtx for early season hunting, but I don't remember any mention of cacti resistivity. If you aren't already used to a stiff footbed, you may not like the Lowa-type boots.

Yeah need something puncture resistant. I'm a barefoot guy but the barefoot boots I have the cactus goes through them like nothing.

I have a pair of Lowa renegades that are low cut. I like them alot for hunting in antelope territory.

Thanks guys. I do have a pair of insulated pronghorns and I like them. Also checking out the Lowas and the Columbias.

I wear some underarmor boots when its warm outside. They are super light and uninsulated. Won't keep cactus out very well though.

I'll be trying a pair of Crispi Idaho models this year during bow season as well as rifle in october.I'll keep you posted.Larry

I wear non-insulated Lacrosse cordura boots and watch where I step. I also have a pair of Danner RAT boots that were a gift, they will turn the thorns pretty well but are heavier than I like in pronghorn country.

I have pretty much resigned myself to wearing tennis shoes and being a pin cushion, haven't found anything lightweight, quite, but puncture resistant yet.

For warm weather I love the Cabela's Full Draw boots. They feel like you are wearing sneakers and they stick to rocks like glue. Never had any problems with the waterproof either. They are my go to chukar hunting boots for early season and definitely great for antelope. Most people see the low price and disregard but I swear by them. Doubt they will be great against cactus but the TPU toe, heel, and lace guards might help. Just throwin it out there.
