AmericanSteel Posted July 12, 2015 Share Posted July 12, 2015 I have been out of pocket for the last six weeks or so: take home work in spades, vacation, taking kids to distant relatives, 4th, etc. Here I am checking out all the new toys today, my first day back out in the cold. I clear out PV, no axe and no bunker to be found. I have a bear skin, a few dear skin, a few wolf pelts and about 20 guts hanging out in the PV farmstead like I am the newest cast member of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Clothing repair options for heavier coats are a bit steep and the curing curve will take some getting use to. Again, I don't have an axe so I cant test out the bow. That said, I am sitting on about 25 rifle rounds and more meat than a corner butcher. Decided to press my luck and hit the coast. Is it just me or do wolves ignore warning shots now? I had one charge me, bang goes the rile, missed the shot and we are rolling in the snow. We play stabby, stabby and the wolf runs off. Another wolf just comes piling on over the hill. WTF over?! I play stabby, stabby again and the wolf runs off. I make it 10 yards and I notice another one coming on in fast. It is like the rifle rapport is the new dinner bell. I kill that wolf with a serious case of lead poisoning. Low and behold another one is coming in. I drop him like a bad habit too. I then look out over the ice and the first McStabby is taking a dirt nap. No clue where the second one went. I make tracks back to the mini base as I don't want to get killed performing first aid. As soon as my hand is on the door handle, I hear a nearby bark and I am inside. Three dead wolves, one bleeding wolf off somewhere and "maybe" another wolf appearing in like a minute. Maybe it was the wounded one coming back. Dunno.I decide to test this dinner bell rapport. I head outside after tending my wounds and mending my tattered gear. I look out over the ice and see three wolves. Before I can take a bead I hear the bark and spin. I catch the wolf coming in off the road about 30 yards away. I take a shot nearby to see if it will bolt. Not having it. Not sure if it is the dinner bell or it is just in full on feast mode. I chamber another round and luckily get a snap shot off before we tumble out over the ice. I then spin back around and notice the other wolves nearby are not doing anything. They are not running off and they are not coming in either. Must be out of range. So I come in a bit close until two of them spot me. I let them come in a bit and take a warning shot. One turns and runs.. but the other starts to pick up speed. Dinner bell? I put him down like a bag of hammers before he gets close. The one that was running is WAY gone. I then hear it, another bark. I turn to my 9 o'clock and see another wolf starting to pad on in. He was on the far side of the rock outcrop and I never even noticed. It then breaks into a charge. I hit escape and exit the game.Well, I was at the Coastal Village. I swear there was a cargo ship relocating wolves that ran aground nearby. They need to change the name of Coastal Village to The Belly of the Beast. Sheez. In all seriousness, does the rapport of the rifle no longer scare the wolves?
