Shoes. You’ll need at least two, maybe even three different pairs/types of shoes. The first pair of shoes you’ll want to bring is very obvious, your hunting boots. Hunting boots should typically be all leather or a leather-insulation combination. Do not come hunting in Colorado without these boots being worn in! Whether hunting on your own, or hunting with a Colorado hunting guide, you’ll most likely be walking/climbing a lot on rough terrain. The second pair will be your camp shoes. If your hunting boots are wet, which is very likely after a day of hunting in Colorado, they’ll need to have time to dry, and this is where your camp shoes come in handy. We recommend some type of tennis shoe or deck shoe that is lighter and will give your feet a break. The third pair of shoes you should bring on your Colorado hunting trip is a pair of insulated pack boots for very cold or snowy conditions. These boots will keep your feet warm, but may not be great for climbing on rough terrain, so make sure they have a tough exterior and inflexible spine in order to give your feet good support. If you plan on wearing leather boots, you may want to rub them with bees wax in the same manner as shining a shoe. Place them by a fireplace or in a slightly warm oven for a very short time in order for the leather to better absorb the wax. This will help make your boots water resistant.
