I am a huge fan of the mucks. I think the artic may be too much. The field blazers may be a good fit. However, like all boots, feet sweating is the biggest cause of cold feet and mucks are no exception

for hunting I always wore lacrosse.  always liked them and thought they were comfortable.  I preferred to stick to rubber boots because I thought scent control was better with them. JMO

In my opinion you can't go wrong with the Muck boot I have had mine for about. Four or five years with no issues.

Try these from Gator. The store is owned by the son of Chipper here on TH. I have some and they are great and made by the same company that makes the Muck boots in China. They are on sale now too!

I have the artic muck boots  up here in new York state it gets cold during hunting season I would look at the tread of the boot and get one that will work for you the artic has a great tread for walking side hills with snow or leaves and you don't slip and fall
turkey season was a wet one now on to deer hunting in October

I have the Muck Field Blazers, been wearing them for 4 seasons now, very comfy, you can wear all day long.  Temp range should be perfect.

I have 3 different weight rubber boots. an early season uninsulated boot. a 1200 weight boot for 0- 40 degrees. once it's below 0 I use my artic sorels. the early season boots are cabelas brand. all these boot are great

I have a pair of lacrosses w/ 'ankle fit', but they are very hard to get on and off. don't buy them. I have to almost dislocate my ankle to taking them on and off

I've always struggled finding rubber boots that fit me very well.  Most have not been very comfortable to walk in all day, but a couple of years back I bought a pair from Gander Mountain that really fit my hooves well - my feet don't slide around, no blisters, and my socks stay up.  Don't know exactly what's different about them but I'll be going after another pair when I wear these out.  I do prefer rubber boots for scent control, but pull out my Lacrosse pac boots if things drop below the 20s. 

Everyone has a little different foot shape & sweats differently, so unfortunately we probably can't give you an absolute answer, just some suggestions to check out. Also keep in mind that while the boots are a big part of the equation for sure, don't forget about the socks - they can make all the difference in the world on both comfort and warmth.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I have a pair of Sorels, they are supposed to be good down to -75 deg, if moderately active.  Don't ever plan on wearing them if it's that cold out, but they are fine down to 10 deg.  For spring turkey hunting, I sometimes wear a pair of lightly insulated rockies, or a pair of rubber Gatoreyes.   It can be a little wet in spots out there
