    Most people duck hunt with chest waders I was gonna get some hip boots for trapping.
    Could I use them for duck hunting too. I have never duck hunted before and eventually wanna start

    Just get some chest waders you can always roll them down. And if it's cold they will keep you warm

    As long as the water is not deeper than your waders you should be fine.

    I have a couple knee-deep potholes that I duck hunt...Sometimes chest waders seem like overkill. Been thinking about getting me a pair.

    Waist waders are are pretty good combo. Lacrosse makes some tough ones that aren't as thick as most waders

    In my experience over the years, they typically have the best deals over Gander or Macks

    Find ya some cheap neoprene waders, I bought some on clearance for $25, and cut legs out where you want them. I wear them pumping out pits and deer hunting bottoms when it rains alot. Never had an issue with them staying up by themselves.

    I just did that to a pair that was leaking in the crotch.
    Some places is not deep and a long walk in. They'll be much easier to walk in.
