RE: rubber boots and dry rotting?
I use armor all or any kind of protectant. After I let them set for a day or two, I wear them to go mud riding on the fourwheeler or just go walk around in the mud somewhere. Also before going hunting, I use a scent killer over my clothes. Besides that, I just keep them stored inside my barn on some boot holders that keeps them upside down and out of the weather.[&:]
