The Forester's one-pole tent
is hexagon shaped, also called a “lean-pee” it easily erects with one or several inside poles. Weather tight, easy to erect, easy to transport, and more stable than a lean-to in windy weather, it is becoming a popular primitive shelter at weekend shoots and rendezvous encampments. 12’ deep at the widest point, and 12’ deep. A 12” sod cloth flap is sewn to all edges. The door is a hood, with all ties on each side. It stands 8’6” high.
