Hi, hunters.
I need some information. I bought anti-snake boots from the irish setter brand and despite the manufacturer claiming they did not have a strong smell they exude a strong smell of new rubber (similar to chemical smell).
I intend to use them on wild boar hunts and as long as I can not eliminate that smell completely I can not use them.
After all who hunt boar knows how much they possess the sensitive sense of smell.
Does anyone know if there is any product I can use to eliminate the strong odor of these boots and that does not hit the material they are made of?

Yeah my wife has a pair and they donít smell at all. Definitely return them. I have Rocky Lynx waterproof hunting snake boots and they donít have any leather on them. They are camo and also have a side zipper so you donít have to lace them up every time. I do a lot of ground hunting with my recurve so I stay away from snake boots with leather on them because they absorb scents. I also have a set of Rattlers Brand camo snake chaps that I picked up at Carterís Country for $60.00 that are really nice. Good for going through brier patches.
