You didn't say what kind of hunting you were going to do. I would wear completely different boots for hunting pronghorn antelope in rolling plains of Wyoming from those I would use elk hunting in the high mountains.
For elk hunting in the high mountains I like Meindl Perfekt Hunters very much. These provide a lot of support for my ankles, which helps when walking rocky trails in the dark, when carrying heavy loads of elk meat, and when bushwacking up a rocky slope. They keep the water out. They are comfortable. My pair has 400 grams of Thinsulate which helps keep my feet warm, but truth be told my toes get quite cold after I've been sitting down in the dark at my hunting spot for 30 minutes on a 20 degree morning before the sun comes up. That is just the fate of my cold blooded feet I think. These boots run about $300. I have used the pair I have now since 2006. Next year I'll probably try to buy a new pair, as the soles are getting a bit thin. That price does not seem to be unreasonable for a very good boot. I wouldn't think of changing boots -- unless these are no longer available on the market -- since they have not failed to be completely satisfactory in my use. My elk hunting partner also uses Meindl Perfekt Hunter boots and has similar high recommendations for them. I will say that sometimes the soles squeak a bit, but this doesn't bother me. I'm not sneaking up on any elk, and other noises like twigs snapping are liable to be louder than these creaking soles anyway.
