The reason I ask is because I'm also looking at a pair of Irish Setters that aren't rubber. The only reason I'd consider going with rubber boots is to be scent free because I think regular boots would be more comfortable. If the neoprene holds scent, it kind of defeats the purpose imo.
I can't imagine any kind of boots making much of a difference in the whole "scent free" game. Mythbusters sealed themselves into an entire RUBBER SUITE. Completely sealed up. Even had a respirator on. Dog still found them no problem. I doubt 2ft of rubber below your knees is going to do much at all.
