Default Hunting boots with sweaty feet?

I have always had sweaty feet and use powder to get rid of the wetness and wondered how this would affect the scent of me while i was bow hunting? Is it good to just let them sweat or use powder. Would the deer smell any one of them if i spray my boots with sometype of scent cover? Thanks

My suggestion would be to ditch the powder, unless it is unscented, and just take an extra pair of socks in with you to the stand. Something along the lines of polypropylene, smart wool, etc... would probably be best.

try wool socks, my feet always sweat with cotton ones, but I got wool ones with my new boots, and it stopped the sweating totally.

Well as a person that sweats alot, I use non-scented antipersperant on my feet....yes you heard me right & it works with a good pair of wool socks or two!!!!! Brampton Mike [8D]

Ditto on the unscented antiperspirant for the feet , and dust the insides of the boots with baking soda to control odor .

ditto again on the unscented antiperspirant for the feet. I read about it somewhere (this board?) recently and tried it this fall. I didn' t have spray, so I slathered stick type on my feet then slathered it around and between the toes, etc. It really worked. On the other hand, I always carry an extra pair of wool socks - there' s nothing like dry socks to warm up the feet, especially if your boots leak or you go over the top [X(] -zeke
