Rocky Snake Boots:
Rocky has hit the turkey woods running with their snake boots. These boots offer virtually everything the turkey hunter could ask for when chasing longbeards in the spring of the year. They offer a couple different soul designs that offer a grip on all types of terrain, whether you’re climbing loose gravel ridges, muddy swamp bottoms, or grassy hills, they can handle it. The soles hold on tight to the stuff you want and release the stuff you don't because of their self-cleaning design.
