The last time I flew into the Idaho wilderness we talked to a guy that had shot a deer and tracked it till dark.  When he went back the next day there was wolf tracks all over.  Apparently he followed the wolf tracks to his deer.  If I remember right both hind quarters were chewed up pretty bad.  My buddy and I have killed four deer in that area. Every time we left one in the field over night we would put one of our shirts on it and pee around it.  The wolves and coyotes never touched them.

I've always heard the pee thing works but never tried it. Thanks for the tip. :)
