Is there one type of camouflage pattern that seems to work better when hunting moose?

I'm thinking real tree will work better since we don't have any oak here.

There is one oak tree! It's in my living room! A small white oak with 5 leaves!

Not big enough to hide behind tho. I've always just used military issue camo gear...never tried the mossy oak stuff.

I liked the link that you posted for Sweden. I couldn't rep you for it though.

My favorite camo is flecktarn, works good here with all the pines and stuff around where I hunt. Should work equally well around spruce and birch. But once again, no moose permit for me down here.
