During the hunting or fishing season, you can go out into the countryside for several days, so overnight stays are inevitable. Sleeping places are arranged differently, some in a car, some in a tent, and some in a boat. But it’s not always possible to drive to the right place by car. On a hiking trip, it may be necessary to sacrifice a tent in order to take other things with you. Then, at the place of an overnight stay, you will have to build a simple gable shelter from the weather or equip a simple gable hut.
The simplest gable shelter from the weather, the device of a simple gable hut from improvised materials.
Sleeping in the open air or in a hut from fir spruce branches, this is a pleasant and romantic element of many days of hunting or fishing. Fresh air and the smell of pine needles create a wonderful atmosphere for sleep and relaxation..
In summer, autumn and even winter, when hunting or chopping on foot, it is always worth taking a plastic film or tarpaulin with a size of 2.5 x 2 meters. If hunting or fishing drags on, but it’s far from housing, it’s still dawn to find a convenient place. In such a place it’s worth setting up camp.
First make a fire, then chop thin poles. Of these, a frame for the canopy should be built. On top of the frame, attach the film, press the bottom edge with stones or a log. Such a pitched shelter serves to protect against wind and as a heat shield. Having chopped fir spruce branches, you can make a camp bed. After dinner, put the firewood in a fire, located 50-80 cm from the bed, and you can go to bed.
The simplest single-shelter shelter, general arrangement.
If the air temperature is below plus 5 degrees, pre-cook two or three dry logs with a diameter of 30–35 cm and 2–2.5 meters long, fold the Nodia coster out of it, it burns all night and gives even heat.
The device of the simplest hut from improvised materials.
A hut can be made from improvised materials, but this will take more time. But a properly folded hut protects well from rain and even hail, water slides from it like from an ordinary roof.
Almost everything that you find nearby, spruce or fir spruce branches, reeds, hay, straw, grass, is suitable for its construction. First you need to prepare two strong flyers, thin poles for rafters and a stronger pole for the ridge of the roof. Start by installing flyers, you need to approach this stage of work very seriously.
Gable hut from improvised materials, general arrangement.
Flyers should be vertically knocked into the ground by almost a third of their length. Put the skate on top of the roof. On it obliquely support thin rafters. After that, from top to bottom on the rafters, lay the material that was procured nearby, so that the top row covers the bottom. Close the back wall as well as the side ramps.
To sleep in such a hut was warm and comfortable, you need to lay a fire near the entrance, and set up an inclined heat screen behind the fire. A lodging arranged in this way will give you not only a sweet dream, but also a real unity with nature, which the modern city dweller so sometimes lacks.
