Deer Hunting in Hip Waders
I recently aquired hunting permission on a new piece of property late this summer. I didn't want to walk around too much and risk messing up the deer's pattern so I found a good looking spot next to a creek. However, when I put the stand up the water was about ankle deep and I planned to wear my rubber hunting boots. Now, a family of beavers have built an impressive dam approximately 150yds down stream of my stand. The once ankle deep water is now mid-thigh high. The best way into my stand is to walk a short distance through a cut corn field and then walk in the creek approximately 100yds to my stand. Therefore, I have to wear hip waders when I hunt. Any one have a similar situation? If so, what type of scent control did you use for the waders?

i hunt in the swamp and half of my hunting is donte with hip waders.
When I get in the stand I roll them down because its so hot and I take scent killer spray and spray my pants down once im setteled in the stand
Thats how we roll in FL

Same here, I wear the Muck Boot hip boot/wader. I have a creek in my way to my stand that dont have no bridge. So I just wade across.

I had a tree 20 yds out in a
beaver pond.I put screw ins up 3 ft then my climber.I used camo neoprene chest waders.I never had any scent issues.They will walk the dams if you can position yourself according to its location. The area will be smoking hot during the rut !
