Probably been done before but post your Hunting Hiltons you have built or found here, please respect other peoples work and do not reveal there locations.
I will get things rolling with something that we built 16 years ago, photos are old so quality not too good, biv is still in good condition
Carry some gear in.

Start the build

Fit the inside out.

Finish! mud from foot traffic soon settles down, 1st attempt at a door.

What happens to all these play forts that people build in the bush when they cant be bothered with them. They are an ugly eye sore now and when they get into a bit of disrepair most people just walk away. Whats wrong with the old saying take only photos leave only footprints. How about keeping our bush in as pristine condition as we can. Take a tent and stop ruining our wild places if you want to build a play fort build it on your own land.

Three different tramping clubs now use this hut (they spay the shit out of the track with paint when they go in).
Doc have used it numerous times as a base when poising.
We have revived a letter from a bloke who crawled his way Into the hut who had been lost and with out food in very bad weather, we always leave a spar sleeping bag, food in cabnet and cooking gear.
That hut and Sapir gear saved his life.
This is the hut in post above

Tramper
The thing that happens to these huts  in remote  parts of the  bush is generally most people respect  and appreciated the efforts it has taken to build. Like Hayds said is saved someone's life.
All these  huts and bivis that have been built  generally stay with family generations or friends who love there hunting and  will maintain  the huts.
