Product Review: The Boot Bag by Tree Apron™
 Those of us that are animate about scent control are always searching for that next product that will give us the advantage we need to eliminate human odor when we enter the deer woods.  Often overlooked, our boots can be a major source of human scent deposit as we walk to and from our hunting spots. Think about it…you take a scent-free shower before the hunt, you keep your scent elimination clothing activated and in scent-free totes, you even keep the clothing in a scent-free bag in the truck on your way to your hunting location.  Most of us don't even put our scent-elimination hunting clothing on until we get out of the truck for the hunt.  What do most of us do with our hunting boots?  We keep them in the basement or garage with our hunting stuff, but not in a scent-free environment.  Then, we throw them on and hop in the truck to drive to our hunting destination, or just maybe, we put them on once we park the truck for the hunt.   Problem is, your human scent is all over your truck, and just about anything else your hunting boots come into contact with prior to the hunt.  Tree Apron has designed a Boot Bag for both tall and short boot applications, which will prevent your boots from absorbing human and human-related scents while storing them at home, carrying them in the truck, or flying them to a long distance hunting destination.

I like this product.  I am guilty of not controlling the scent contamination of my hunting boots adequately.  The Boot Bag should provide that extra measure of scent elimination I need for my hunting boots this hunting season.  I plan to keep my boots in the Boot Bag whenever I am not wearing them.
