Net hunter outside deep forest hunting camp.  These folks all had shelter for the night in about two hours.  Women bend the branches to create a superstructures and then go off in the woods to get the right kind of leaves.  The Forest Hunting camps we hiked to are about 10k to the camp and then another 10K to where they string their nets.   Boys who are going thru the end of the circumcision ceremony called Kumbi accompanied the pygmies to the camp and were housed off to the side.  They were whipped every morning and then sent off into the forest to hunt or fish.
