Looking for the ultimate dedicated hunting tire

So I've got a 14 f350 long bed 4x4 with 2.5" spacers. With factory 18" wheels. I normally run nitto terra grapplers which I love, they can pack the weight and their great for 90% of what I do. Mostly so cal desert sandy stuff. But once a year I drive to Wyoming ( pulling my 28' 10k trailer) for the family deer hunt. In my old 06 I've been stuck three different times in horrible mud. Not deep but slick as can be. The nittos are great tires but not good in mud. Our hunt is normally in early to mid oct, so it's normally mud I've got to deal with, every few years it's mud and snow. So here's the good news, My brothers got a 2012 SD that he just put wheels on so he gave me his factory 18"wheels. So here's what I'm looking for
1. Awesome mud and snow performance off road
2. Decent wet pavement. My truck is heavy so I've never really had hydroplaning issues.
3. Decent weight carry capacity. I'm planning on a 35x12-18" size.
4. Don't care about noise or how long they last. They will only get about 3k miles a year on them.

I have been running the goodyear Duratrac for the last 5yrs on my trucks and I am very pleased with them in both snow and mud.they aren't noisey on the highway either. I got 60,000 miles+ on the last two sets; rotating them every 7K.

I live and hunt in Wyoming, I know all about the Mud.

On my Toyota hunting truck, I run Hankook MT. I have ran some nasty roads with them.

I just put them on the F250 last year and they did great.

FYI - All the game and fish guys run these tire too...

Toyo is a great tire... For a street truck that gets dirty from time to time...

Dedicated hunting rig... Throw a set of Super Swampers on there and be done... Be half the price of a set of Toyo's, and last just as long, and offer better traction for a hunting truck.
