Build it out of poured concrete walls. pour no floor. Use 3/4" rebar bent like a U for the stairs steps poured into the wall. Biuld the wall 1' deeper than what you need. Drill into walls and install steel angles about 1' high off dirt floor. Install 2 x 8 treated planks for floor. if the water comes up to floor, pump it out. A few rains worth of water can hold under floor. But if water table is too high-pour the 6" thick floor at same time. Remember to use plenty of 1/2" rebars for horizontal and vertical mreinforcing.

Is it going to be perminent or just seasonal? If your hunting a guys farm chances are they will make you fill it back in after the season. If that is the case just dig out the pit, build your lids and put about 4 4x4s across the top. Then just staple your grass or whatever to the top of the lids....

Where's your pit at?
Don't argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

If that don't light your Fire, your woods WET!!!!
