Default can anyone recomend a good boot?

I was looking for hunting bootsand, I realized I don't know what is good for keeping down the scent. I am looking for a boot I can wear hunting without doing a ton of stuff to it. EX... my current rubber boots had to ride around in the bed of my truck for a couple of weeks to get the rubber smell out of them. I was looking to spend around $80.00.

Irish Settler by RedWing. Best boot by far. Many varieties to choose from. I have two pair and love both of them.

can probably find good rubber boots that arent insulated for around that price...

i had a pair of "field and stream" cheaper rubber boots that were insulated....they werent very comfy, were heavy and clumsy, and although i definently got my moneys worth, they didnt last real long....

i just bought a pair of Lacrosse Alpha Burly sports in 800g insulation. i cannot get over the comfort level and lightness....amazing difference...but they run like 140 for the 800s from most places...uninsulated would been cheaper....i been wearing them coonhunting the past week every night or so...walking long hard and fast....i love them...except they are too warm for coon hunting and major walking in the warm months...but im covering alot of ground quickly alot of times when im going to a treed hound....if i find they are too much to walk in the stand in, i'll take a 2nd pair of socks...but i walk to my stand slowly and its alot colder than the 70s i been coonhunting in....

all rubber boots are going to smell like rubber for a bit...best way to get rid of it is to wear them....i wore the rubber scent off mine in a couple nites hunting....rubber boots are the way to go to keep scent down though...leather will always have a leather smell and your scent will escape through the leather without you knowing it....

I got me some Lacrosse Alpha Burly sports in 1000g insulation and paid 139(cabelas). they're some sweet rubbers. i'm gonna get a pair of uninsulated for early season. i think cabela's had the uninsulated ones on sale for like 80-90.
it would be worth it to look into it.
