Both the youth line and the adult line of Venom are made with protection in mind. They are waterproof and scent-free, by use of the Dry-Core barrier, which not only prevents water from getting into the boot, but helps transfer moisture away from your foot. They are lightweight, flexible and rugged enough to keep up with your hunting adventures. Snake protection is provided by the 360º Snake Guard which is 12″ high on the youth model and a full 18″ high on the adult version. The reinforced abrasion resistant toe cap protects the boot while you are trail blazing. The boots are also attractive looking, with camo trimmed with leather.

While scouting for turkey, Sarah and I both wore our Venom boots. Traction was not an issue, with the multi-directional low profile lugs. We hiked through the dead leaves of last fall, and the newer downed limbs from the prolonged winter, all great snake habitat. We often had to cross small creeks or marshy areas, and our feet stayed dry and comfortable. Climbing the steep hills of western Pennsylvania was not problem, or at least not much of one.

The boots did great, but the hills are sometimes steeper then they look. While we did not encounter any snakes, of which I was quite happy, the boots performed wonderfully. The side zip is a great addition to these boots! You can leave the boot laces tied where it is comfortable, and simply unzip to take the boots off. Even better, when we get up in the morning, we don’t have to fuss with the laces, just quickly zip on and head out for our hunts! Other brands of snake boots I have owned have rubbed my ankles raw, and had no flexibility; they will now be going into the dumpster.

If you hunt in an area frequented by poisonous snakes, protect yourself and your youth hunter with the Venom Snake Boots from LaCrosse. The Youth Venom Boots come in sizes 1-6 and have a MSRP of $120.00, while the adult
