How many unsucessful trips into an area untill you give up on it? i am new to hunting around the mat-sue area, last year i looked on google and found some spots that looked promising. last year i went out and scouted the area, of course there were signs that people had hunted there before but there were no fresh camping sign. the two camps i saw hadnt been used for a few years it looked like. while scouting there were some signs that moose had been through the area but i didnt see any moose nor did i see any brush or trees that had been scraped. this year i went back one camp was occupied so i didnt go there. the other place was empty so i went out and did a little calling. i saw signs that moose had been there but i still didnt see any moose. i am about ready to give up and find some place elese. if i had seen a cow or two i would be more confident that this area would a bull. have i given this area a fair chance or should i move on? i read on here a few years ago some went to the same hunting camp for 5 or 6 years and never saw a moose, to me that is a good area for drinking and camping not hunting.
