PostSubject: Silent scentless alternative to rubber boots?   Sat 28 Jul 2012, 9:35 am

As we stalk to our tree stand, blind or scout to locate a hot spot. We want to do so silently without leaving our human scent in the area. I wear Rocky "Scent Free" rubber boots and the problem I have with them is that they are heavy, I get tired when I have a ways to go. Thick soles so I can't feel what might be underneath them and being rubber they are far from quiet.

Scent control is so important when hunting I don't want to sacrifice it just for comfort, but it would sure be great to have an alternative.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Two things here, One; I won a pair of Superlite Boots at an archery shoot this spring. They are still rubber boots (thick sole) but WOW are they lite and reasonably quiet !! www.Superliteboot.com
Two; I also have a pair of good moccasins that I will occasionally wear out into the bush. They aren't 100% waterproof like my Superlites but they are quiet,comfy and lite and you can feel whats underfoot pretty well. I should point out they are muclucs, not actually moccasins (they come up to mid calf) but this would be a good alternative if you know where to find good quality leather work or native crafts. I've had mine for a few years now and they are still in great shape so they are well worth the money.

Thanks guys. Dave I tried the link for Elimitrax and their link wouldn't open. Also tried calling their 1-800 number and it wouldn't go through. Sounds like a terrific product except for the noise noted in the reviews of it. I love my old Danner Pronghorn boots which have never let me down but they fail in the For stillhunting & stalking I wear heavy wool socks and water shoes (like you walk in the beach with) and I can feel whatever is under my feet. I just want to be able to get to the stand or wherever I want to hunt without leaving my own scent everywhere I've walked.

With my rubber boots I wash them inside and out in baking soda and don't touch them with my bare hands when I put them on after I leave my 4Runner. Sounds like Elimitrax will be what will work best if I could just get a hold of them. Thanks guys.
