I found an old thread that got me thinking. How do I know if a camp is "someone's spot"? Do I have to keep going because they think a spot is theirs?
Here are some more details:
I'm hunting a river with no ATV or motor access. Let's say I find the following camps: is it okay to camp there??
1. An established camp with fire ring and meat pole. No sign that anyone has been there this year.
2. An established camp with fire ring and meat pole. It appears that a group hunted it earlier in the season. No evidence that they have been here in a few weeks.
3 A good camping site. It appears that folks have made some improvements. Again, no signs that anyone has been there this year.
4. A good camping site. It seems like a popular spot. Lots of evidence that folks have camped and hunted from there this season.
