    Why is it that everybody says to use rubber boots while deer hunting? I mean how do they help keep your scent down? What about leather boots with rubber soles?

    Scent comes out of the leather.
    Rubber knee-high are the best.

        leather is permiable. Rubber ain't. Bowhunting, rubber is the better choice

          Cooner is right the rubber won't hold your sent. If you get the right pair they're pretty comfotable too, don't be afraid to spend the same money you would on a pair of leather hunting boots.

            That's a bunch of crap. I think Goodyear put that info out.

              Rubber is better because it is virtually scentless. leather has a scent to it that is somewhat unnatural to the deer and rubber holds in scent due to the fact that the atoms are packed together tightly enough to keep scent molecules in unlike leather.

                Studies show that a deer can smell a track made by a leather boot for up to 9 hours after the track is made. Rubber boots 2 hours.

                  SUPPOSEDLY, leather holds a human scent more so than rubber boots which SUPPOSEDLY don't hold any human scent. I don't use rubber boots and still continue to have success.

                          We've been feed a bunch of hogwash. Rubber boots are cheaper to produce and. They can still out a hefty price tag on them. It's all about the profit margin.

                              Good article on pressure testing. It takes about 40 hours to test for one caliber and bullet weight with about 16 types of powder.

                              This could turn heavy on Woodstock.

                              How about some Joe Cocker?
