Downed Log Wilderness Survival Shelter
Here’s a Dubree hut that we built over a downed log. What a great wilderness survival shelter using what you find (i.e., a downed log).
Step 1 – Lay a couple of long poles across the downed log. Then start laying branches across the poles like an A-Frame.
Step 2 – Finish laying branches along with the A-Frame and a few to close up the doorway. Look at that header for the doorway. I’ve never seen a stronger doorway.
Step 3 – Cover the shelter with pine bows, needles, etc.
Step 4 – Now lay down some pine bows for bedding and climb in and plug the door.
Now that’s a nice shelter.
Note: Remember to look at the posts on “wilderness survival shelter criteria” and “3 components of a Dubree hut” to see all the steps and check if this student followed them.
