Vintage Hunting Boots

In this day and age of discovering the newest gadgets and updated technology, hunting equipment has come a long way. One of the bloggers we follow recently touched on the question, “Do We Really Need To Hunt With All This ‘Stuff’?”

This conversation brought up a touch of nostalgia for the good ol’ days, back when hunters hit the woods with nothing but a shotgun, or when a good pair of hunting boots cost less than $10. We scoured the web for photos reminiscent of these simpler times–check out these vintage hunters and their boots, and imagine a life without Gore-Tex or Realtree. Can you be inspired to lose the comfort of modern technology for one hunting trip?

  1. I My first time deer hunting was well after magrraie. A friend of my husband invited us to go with, my husband politely refused and said that if I wanted i could go, just do it, so I did and have been hooked. I have harvested a few on my own and with a cousin and with my daughter. My husband has gone out with us but does not want to shoot the deer so I do. I enjoy the time in the woods, with and without family and friends. I also enjoy trapping, running my hounds, hunting with my JR’s(terriers), compittion hunting and shooting. These are things that I was not allowed to do growing up, as Mother always said these thing were not ment for a real lady. Hunting was a gentlemans sport and the ladies were meant to clean and cook the bounty. I don’t hold with this and have taught my daughter that she could do what ever she wanted with her life and yes, she hunt right out there with me. Thanks to my husband’s friend, guys like my cousin in WI, and the few other men in the world who believe that women can enjoy hunting and spending time in the woods. I have had to fight my family and most of the redneck jerks around here who think they know where a woman belongs
