I really am not feeling up to responding to much today and will not address a good part of your post. But I will answer your question.
I have only dealt with one pack coming in and never actually had to defend myself against them, yet. I do believe it was because of the number of
people and vehicles out there that day. We seen about 7/8 wolves, maybe more, moving in and out of the trees watching us. The closest being maybe a
couple hundred feet away. They were to close for my comfort.
But it did make me remember the cougar that has stocked me a number of time and even seen next to the fenced yard for the dogs. She was there for our
dogs. It also makes me think of the bears that I see every year collecting the apples from the hill. It made me wonder how I would handle that had I
been out there by myself. Or even just a couple people.
These things we have to think of all the time. When yo have a grizzly less then a football field away, kicked back in the trees enjoying his/her full
belly. You tend be more caution then you normally would be. And within 5 miles of a very small town.
I so hope this is clear. I hurt to much today to be real focused.
Thank you folks...
Should also mention that even tho that is the only time I have seen a pack while dealing with a steer for the freezer. We see one or 2 come through
many time during the year.
