        1.get a bottle or soap that gets rid of ur sent,,Wash the bottom of your boots with the soap or spray it. if u think about it. walking around in camp/in a cabin/stored poorly will attract scents to it and as you walk, you are leaving a trail of scent like a doe leaves a trail of estrus or all deer leaving small drops of intergrade(spell?) scent as they walk.

            I agree with the rubber bottom boots--and don't touch the brush, branches, etc. with your hands as you walk.

              Rubber boots with a good dose of cow manure.

                Rubber boots for sure. PAShooter is on target if you are hunting in or near a cow pasture. Use other natural material from your immediate vicinity: freshly worked soil, mud, apples/persimmons, etc. Whatever you can walk through that is readily available in your immediate hunt area is better than any commercial cover scent.

                  you can wash your gear in scent killer and spray your boots with scent killer
