  • Wolf at the Door........

    Just had a wolf walk around the cabin, and look in the windows. Went up on the roof of a few buildings (18 1/2 feet of snow) snow is above the roof on some buildings. It made off with a 8# turkey breast from the outside freezer.
    One day you eat the chicken.....next day the left-over chicken.....next five days you eat chicken feathers, head and feet.

    How many legs did this wolf have?

      Be glad he only took one turkey. Next time put a lock on the freezer.

      If he has family around you should start carrying a side arm for self protection. He came into your living area and he was not spooked then he has been around humans before. NOT GOOD!

        yep, this animal will be bad news. if he's not afraid of being that near to you, then it won't be too afraid to hold it's ground against you, or even start looking at you as food. Start looking at snares or traps.

          With all the reading have done over the course of 2 to 4 years, I have come to the conclusion the best way to survive a SHTF senario is to homestead. For me it will be gardening, and now that we can have chickens and rabbits, that would be all I can do. Of course this would include canning, dehydrating, freeze drying if you have a way to do it smoking meat as well as knowing how to make cheese, cleaning items, how to do things without electricity such as washing and drying clothes. Hanging clothes in the winter is a bear. I have my solutions to that. I have the clothes lines you just pull out in my garage which is attached to the house and has heat. So that is where I hang clothes in winter as well as smaller items in bathrooms. Tanning hides which I do not know how to do. But so many things that you can learn from homesteading books. I am still in process of learning to make soap. But these are some of the books I use: Ho
          pe they will be of help to you guys if you decide to get any of them.
          The lost ways book 1 and 2
          The lost Book of Remedies These 3 books are by Claude Davis

          Homesteading A complete guide to baking, carpentry, crafts,organic gardening,, raising animals and a few more things. Not everything in this book would pertain to SHTF situation but would have things in it to keep the kiddos busy.
          Also Self sufficiency complete guide to also baking, and other things that will help with prepping. both of these books sound like the same type of books but have different things in them on the above topics.
          The other one I have and is the best of these is
          The Encyclopedia of Country living 10th edition. This one is a lot of reading but has more ideas in it on things like milling your own flour, learning basic bee keeping, building your house or cabin. Just all kinds of things. Even on managing a herd of cattle and pruning your fruit trees. Candle making, etc.
          This one is by Carla Emery.

            Sourdough: I know it has been a long time since your original post, but how did this situation turn out? Did you ever see the wolf again? Did you do something to deter them from coming back? Sounded a little ominous when you first posted. Something to really be concerned about.

              No.........I did nothing about that wolf. They have never threatened me. Very small wolf groups or packs in this location. Generally I only see single wolves here, sometime two or three. Wolves do attack and kill humans, but it is extremely rare. Bears are my highest risk.

                I think I may have put my post in wrong place. It is on homesteading but ended up on wolves at the door. Though Sourdough I am glad you are not having a wolf problem now. Just be careful of any rabid ones. That would be where the danger is.

                  Actually the real danger is not encountering a rabid Wolf. The real danger is running away from any Wolf or Wolves, or any predator for that matter.

                  I thing you will find this interesting.......

                    I did read that post when you first wrote it. It is interesting, and well worth reading again.
