I've owned several pairs of Merrell shoes and boots over the years. Mostly for street use and light outdoor use. They've all been very good but now I'm looking at a pair of Merrell hikers for hunting. The model is called "Phaserbound".

Any of you guys ever wear Merrells to hunt?

I'm not a fan of the of the grips on the soles of most of the hunting boots.

Iím a Danner sharptail guy, with that said the Salmon 4d is a very comfortable and highly rated boot, and itís same price point

Merril makes great boots for home use. I'd try Lowa perfect hunters or Danner Sharptails for hard hunting use.

I grew out of my Perfect hunters so I went to Sharptails
I have big legs and the lace ups almost don't work cause they jab into my foot where they crease in my back step. Good socks solved the problem and these boots are really tough. We walked stubble for days and they held up well. They are comfy and really tough boots.

My brother has good things to say about the new orvis kangaroo leather boots. They fixed the sizing problem.

I like a backpacking boot over a bird hunting boot

I agree about the lug soles on most boots, I'm not a big fan either.
I currently have a pair of Danner Pronghorn and a pair of Irish Setter Wingshooters.

The Danners have better support than the Wingshooters but the Wingshooters are all leather, therefore much better around cactus.
I've developed a slight foot issue on my left foot so I'm thinking the Merrells would give me the support and they are all leather.
I also know they are lightweight. - the soles are not too aggressive:

I have these too. (Browning Kangaroo) but I need to have them re soled(sp).

Won a pair of Irish Setters (cant remember what model) on a Facebook contest and they are good but not what the Brownings are / were. I wish they still made them.
