Yes, it was, after he remodeled it after his old insecure one's defenses were penetrated by both a skunk and a porcupine. The old one didn't even have a door! He remodeled it later, made the wood strips into a tight mesh, and he could not fit his fist through anywhere in the shelter. He also wove a door very fine, and after that no more small animals got into his shelter, though Brian does recall that a bear could get into it by tearing it apart, though one never did in his time on the island. So: Old one: insecure, New one: secure.

Yes, Brian's shelter in "Hatchet" was not very secure at the beginning. He initially built a shelter under an overhang of rock and relied on a fire for warmth, but later he improved it by adding more branches and leaves for insulation.
