I mostly die from hunting Bull Elk. Actually, that's the only way I die. I even have a wolf with -0.5 strength, and I killed a Druid. Is this a glitch?

Bull elk. But only once. I learned my lesson and hunt a bull only in the near of other carcasses.

For me it's when I go hunting with low health.

..and it looks like so far, that hunting a bull elk is the most common way of dieing on the poll.
I have to agree in a way; they are stronger, yet, they don't run as much as the cow elk. They seem to face you and stop, which should give you a chance to run back to a carcass and not run around and spend time trying to chase the bull like you would a cow elk.
Unless, of course, you've waited too late and now your wolf is too slow. I'm assuming this is the case with some of you?

Bears. It's always bears. I've hunted a bull elk once, and after chasing it across the entire Amethyst Mountain map, eating every carcass on that map, and then wasting about three to four real life hours, I finally killed it. Haven't tried since. Bears, however, love to smack their deadly paws at me while I'm walking past trying to get to a carcass. They find it enjoyable to try to eat my pups, and killing me along the way. I've managed to chase one off total, because I die before I can get three bites in. :evil:

My wolf has never really died in Slough Creek, though it did in Amethyst.


The only two ways I have died are...

= Hunting any elk. My mate usually desides not to help me - before I can kill it, my health is nearly gone, and I have to find a nearby carcass. Usually, I die after ten minutes :c

== Cattle Ranch. This only happened once, though - after I had killed a calf, the dog started barking... I started running around like a crazy maniac, thinking: "Am I going to see dogs? Oh boy, oh boy!" que the gunshot... I had no clue it was coming. Poor me. xD




As I've advanced in both single and multi player, I learn new ways to not kill myself... one being:

= When you're hunting elk, go for the cow that is the weakest. I don't bother for the Bull - they both give you meat, right? Plus, a good thing to do is run the elk toward another carcass - there, you can refule yourself to finish the hunt! c:

In single player, my wolf never dies. I'm careful to always keep an eye on my wolf's health.

On multiplayer, I use bull elk to kill my wolf off on purpose so I can do the "run super fast" glitch. Either that, or I am hunting bull elk with other players and I don't care whether or not I die.

almost exclusively from attacking bears to see what happens when done in various ways.
I find it very difficult to die from anything else.

Really, hunting is the only thing that threatens to kill my wolves. The elk are much stronger and faster in Slough Creek, so hunting them is like hunting a weaker version of the bull elk. It gets even harder when you have hungry pups that lose health almost as fast as your wolf. Very rarely does anything else threaten to kill my wolves, except when you get a mod of coyotes that keep coming out of thin air!

My wolf usually dies by the bears, hunting bull elk and druid wolves. My mate always helps with hunting. When I go for a bull elk, he always dies at least three times and I don't die at all. :wink:

I really never die. In Slough Creek and Amethyst Mountain the bears run away. My main death is by hunting so I scavenge like a coyote,(emphasize the name!). I always defeat the other wolf, I either kill it or it is scared away. :D My Wolf Rocks!!!

It seems elk hunting is the most popular way of dieing. Its sometimes hunting for me though I don't goto hunt often so and including Druid wolves the other common way my wolf dies is because of bears xP They always seem to pop up at my den often meaning more bear chasing and dieing for me.

What'll usually happen with me, I'll be hunting a bull elk then I'll try find a carcass to increase my health, but I die on the way. :/

I've never died of anything besides the bears. Grr... They always get me, no matter which episode! :(
