    I've been in the woods my entire life and work in the woods with my job and have never come across a den so well made. This thing was impressive, made of salt briars and leaves. Dimensions are roughly 3.5' high and 4' wide.

    It doesn't appear to be in use right now. The leaves going in and out don't seem to have been disturbed recently.

    I did. It's about 4' in depth and looks like a pile of leaves were brought in for bedding
