I would say get a normal, high quality set of boots (local Sportsmans Warehouse has GREAT clearance boots right now) and get a set of snake gaiters that you can add as needed.  That way you are not stuck with a tall, rigid, often too hot boot.  You can get a lot more use out of one set of boots, 2-3 different weight socks, and a set of gaiters.  My gaiters are a bit hot when the weather is, but the peace of mind is worth it.  And they protect your legs from spiny plants.

Now that quail season is in full swing, have you had a chance to go out and try it yet?  Give us a progress report.

I ended up not going out when I had planned. I put a lot of work into getting someone to watch the kids, took an extra day off work, etc. When I stopped to think about it I was ashamed to realize I couldn't remember the last time I put that much effort into spending time with my wife. So instead of going out I spent the day with my wife, and a strong relationship with her is worth more than a few quail breasts. The season is long and I'm sure there will be other chances to go out.

Skas, are you up near Florence or is that just where you went to hunt? I grew up around Arizona City and that whole area (Coolidge, CG, Flo town) is where I used to run around growing up.

Sweet thread!!!! I am in Mesa, Arizona and I will be trying my hand at small game hunting soon I hope. I have boots and all that other stuff but a lack of hunting experience. I have a ammo drop pouch that I might stuff game into so I am covered there. The other part of my gear that is an unknown is my Mother in laws 20G shotgun. Is that a decent choice? Its a over under brake action.

thank you
