Tip of the week – Tips for your feet

Take care of your feet.
Take care of your feet and they will take care of you

Boots worn when doing a lot of walking, such as hunting boots and especially boots worn when scouting, should always be at least 1/2 size larger than your normal shoe size. The reason being that during the course of a day with a lot of walking your feet tend to swell. Boots that fit perfectly when you left your vehicle will begin to fit tighter and can even restrict blood flow as the day goes on. Buy boots for walking about 1/2 size larger and wear both a thin, wicking sock and a thicker sock when you put your boots on, then later if they begin feeling tighter you can stop and remove the thicker socks and give your feet room to breath. On the same note, if planning a full day afield take a spare pair of socks with you in your pack, when you stop at mid day for a snack, change your socks. You will be amazed how refreshed you will feel after such a simple change. Happy hunting. – Steve
