After a grueling Dall sheep hunt in 2002 Jim Winjum harvested what he came for - but on the way down the Mackenzie Mountains in the NWT things almost came to halt as Jim’s boots gave out. That trip sparked this engineering graduate from Montana State University’s mission to design the world’s best boot for mountain hunting. Now, 20 years later, Kenetrek is one of the world’s premiere manufacturers of quality hunting boots. In this episode, Brian, Brad and Bryan Martin re-live the story of Kenetrek as well as talking about what goes into the design and manufacture of a great boot (and socks). They also swap stories of favorite sheep hunts.
