    Holy shit.

    Far out!
    I've never been to Diggers hut but knew a few guys who went there a lot. I used to spend a bit of time at the Forks hut a bit further south.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I've spent many nights in Diggers hut, and forks as a young fellow, doing an apprenticeship in PN, was my main hunting grounds, Hut never was, very high above the creek, bit disheartening see photos of the hut like that. I wonder if that fresh slip behind the hut, had something to do with it.

    Yea it's an awesome place and such a shame to loose such a great hut.
    Diggers and Forks is my main hunting area.

    I wonder what caused that? - it must have been there for many years. A DOC picture shows it on what seems to be a nice site.
    I never went there - I concentrated most of my hunting in Te Ekau Creek - next door
