Two hunters

The Hunter A component is a fairly well-known puzzle:
Hunter A walks South but stops at a point short of the South Pole. From there he then walks East until he is back again at this point, (all the way round the Earth). He then walks North back to the camp.

Hunter B walks South but stops at a point short of the South Pole. From there he then walks East until the South Pole and his camp are in a direct line (halfway round the Earth). He then walks South, crossing the South Pole, and keeps walking (now actually going North) until he is back at camp.

A variant of the Hunter B answer:
Hunter B walks South, crossing the South Pole and keeps walking until he is further North than the camp, at which point he walks East until he is directly North of the camp, (halfway round the Earth). He then walks South back to the camp.
