A poled route over tussock leads south down Devilskin Stream to the bushedge where the marked, cut track starts. My notes just say "A very long sidle down the true left of Devilskin Stream to the Doubtful". Broad shingle flats with a track on the south side. Crossing was knee deep with some snowmelt present - small river in a big riverbed so clearly floods at times.
Doubtful hut is a few hundred meters downstream on the south bank.
