waders

Postby gaduckhunter1985 » Mon Apr 07, 2014 11:52 pm

I have found some waders at Academy for $79.99. Do you think these would be okay for this upcoming season? On a tight budget right now. Thanks. The waders are game winners brand.

They will probably get you through a season but I imagine that will be it.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

these are another cheap option I got tired of having cheap waders and neoprene ones that always would end up leaking at the seams and got USIA wasders but the USIA's weren't cheap but they should last me a long time

Get cabelas waders. Pay for the extended warranty deal and I believe they're covered for life. When they rip or leak just send them back.

I don't know wich ones they are but I had some academy specials that mom got us and I absolutely hated them but lord they were tough. They fit like skinny jeans but they worked. They were the 5 mill ones. I like macks waders.

It sucks to be on a tight budget. I don't know about those waders you listed, but in general you get what you pay for. That said, some times you can get fishing waders that will save you some money over the comparable camo waders. Get a brown and they would most likely be fine for duck hunting.
Public spots can be:
-Good
-Easy to get too/ find
-Not crowded

This is a very good idea. I was under the impression I HAD to have camo waders. I like to build my own blinds and that way I can move them from place to place where conditions are better for hunting. Only reason I need the waders is to pick up the ducks. Thank you for the response.

I use a pair of brown cabela waders that I picked up on sale for like $40. I don't think a duck has ever noticed that they weren't max4. Most of my missed ducks have come from not being still, not the color of my waders

Hey a quick question, have you guys ever taken your wives/girlfriends out hunting where they need to use waders? I am looking for a good affordable pair for myself. Thanks

What is your idea of affordable.....$99? $299? Cabela's would be the first place to look; they have lots to choose from.

I purchased some game winner waders from Academy 4 years ago and they are functioning well for me. But I think I paid around $159 for them so the model you are referencing may be different.

Too bad.
The ducks will spot you instantly.
