The other day I was having a wonderful discussion on the phone with another forum member and he made a statement that I had not heard before. He stated that camps that with no camp fires were more successful than camps that had fires. He said that the fire alerted the moose of your presence. I always thought smoke was a natural smell and typically would not alert animals.
I am by no means a moose expert. So I ask the question. If you were in a remote area on a drop camp, unable to change locations, do you have a camp fire or not?
