        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.
