    I don't think this counts as a hut maybe? I found this last month in careys creek. I think someone was having a bit of 'bushcraft' fun there over the summer period. Probably not legal. Was a bit annoyed that it was built in an area I like to stalk for goats, but at least there was no trash. Not a single beer bottle or can to be found. It also rained soon after I found it so I enjoyed the shelter with a big spider.

    @JessicaChen Carey’s is such a small block that there’s really no need to overnight in there. No idea why anyone would bother building a shelter in there. Hunted it heaps over the last 7-8yrs.

    Here’s a cool wee hut I’m sure some of you know. Built in 1920. Bunks are made of Manuka. Has a hefty hut book that goes back to the mid 1980s, even with people writing several pages per entry.

    This shelter is not far from a road (within 200m). So I would hazard a guess it was just for fun, and not for any practical reason such as an overnight stay.
    But yeah I like Carey's. Got a few goats in there, but feels a bit difficult sometimes due to thickness and steepness.

    Looked through this thread again, and felt pleased I started it 4 years ago. Huts seem to be a trigger to many of our memories of areas and places we have hunted or been. Long may the venerable FS hut and its offspring live!

    Almost as interesting as one of its builders Alex Shute, who lived there for some years. When it was built Alex was not long out of hospital after being wounded in WW1 when the hut was built. Alex (Alexander) was a thoroughly interesting chap who was likely most at peace at the hut. Lester Masters talks about him in Back Country Tales and wrote this about him.

    Old Alex Shutewas a rabbiting man,
    In the high lands of the Bay,
    He'd pull your leg and drink your grog,
    And yet you would want to stay,
    With that old coot of a toughie Shute,
    In the high lands of the Bay.

    Regards Grandpamac.
