I would have done anything to try and survive if it would have attacked but to think you're gonna choke out a killing machine like a wolf is hilarious. Worst day I've ever had in the woods.


Your probably right! But the question was what would you do? Most of us would try what we said or what others brought up. Point is we'd all fight like to try and survive!!!!!!!!

I did what I had to, kept my eyes on him and kept yelling at him and tired to get to safety. I can tell you that when the wolf came at me I wasn't thinking of choking it, I was thinking keep him in front of me, that was the hardest part.

I've heard of police dogs breaking officers arms in a training scenario where they were in the protective suit!

Also had some family friends working a movie set where a real wolf was being used and they said it was by far the biggest dog they've ever seen. In reality I'd try and climb a tree then try a flying elbow 8-)

No doubt, the one I dealt with was massive. German shepards are small compared to wolves.

No kidding!!! largest domestic doc track I've seen was from a huge St. Bernard. about 4 1/2" long by 4" wide. Not including claws. Largest wolf track was 6 1/2" long by 6" wide. Sheperds are actually a large medium sized dog.

I laugh when I hear someone say I think I saw a wolf. If you think you might have, you didn't. No mistaking one, they are beasts.

Exactly. Nobody has any experience with an actual attack. When your fighting for your life it's amazing what humans can do to survive.

Well I was as close as anyone to being attacked. When he got within 5 yards a couple times I never thought about grabbing it I thought about climbing. I'm pretty sure anyone else in my situation would have done the same.

About 10 years ago while late season bow hunting I was followed out of the woods by an entire pack. I was very nervous but stayed calm and kept a steady pace. No way I was taking on an entire pack. They seemed more curious than anything and never got aggressive. This was far NW Vilas County.

This old woman killed one with an ax

I am not trying to say that I could do it myself, I am just saying its been done.

Also to get further into it I bet time of day has to play a big factor. I'd rather take one on during daylight than at night!

Just another reason to stay far South :D

I'll take the wolves compared to some of the stuff you guys get. Snakes, hogs, gators, fire ants, crazy big skeeters, southern rednecks, tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, tropical storms.
