Rules of a hunt

  • If in a group hunt, all members should be allowed to take part equally. If someone in the group has yet to make a move in the hunt give them a chance to before the hunt is over
  • Any member is permitted to start/join a hunt, but remember to try and incorporate a slayer, after all it is there role to hunt
  • Avoid instant kills, check out the RP guide to see what is permitted and what is not
  • Avoid over hunting. Yes, hunts are fun things, but making your wolf hunt constantly is no fun. Try to limit hunts, a big prey animal every few RP days and smaller prey no more than once a RP day

Hunting Tactics
Wolves are primarily nocturnal animals that avoid the heat of day. They generally commence hunting at dusk.
Wolves detect prey by three primary means, scent (most common), tracking, and chance encounters.
After prey is detected, wolves may split up to search through brush, travel on ridge tops searching for the prey below, or test herds looking for signs of weakness
Wolves primarily hunt the older, weaker or sicker animals
Although it does not prey only on the weak and the ill, the wolf is opportunistic, and it is inevitably the disadvantaged that are the easiest to catch.
Selection
Weakened animals may show their condition to predators through body stance, uncoordinated movements, the smell of wounds or infection, or some other tangible signal. The reading and evaluation of these signals comprises what Barry Lopez has poetically termed "the conversation of death."
Once a weak individual is selected by a pack, wolves will usually travel upwind. By traveling upwind, the sent of any prey will be carried to them. They will follow the air currents directly to the game. Or, they may follow the sent trail left by a game animal's foot tracks and body odours.
The Chase
Just before the chase wolves prefer to make there final approach downwind so there body sent is not carried to the prey species, alerting it to their presence
Prey that runs is usually chased. Prey that stands its ground may be able to bluff off its pursuers. Moose and Elk often take to deep water or swift rivers and await departure of the pursuing wolves, But more often than not the wolves wait. While the majority of the pack rests, one or two members test the prey for signs of fatigue.
Contrary to popular belief, most prey chased by wolves actually gets away, and in spite the wolf's prowess as a hunter, the majority of his prey escapes.
The Attack
When the attack comes, the prey is usually seized by either the nose or the rump. Rarely, if ever, does a wolf hamstring a prey animal. The actual death of the prey is usually caused by massive blood loss, shock, or both. Sometimes with smaller prey a neck bite will snap a backbone.
The Alpha wolf will eat first, Wolves usually begin to feed on the rump, if it was exposed during the chase, or else on the internal organs. The muscle and flesh is the last portion of the prey that is eaten. Having strong jaws allows the wolf to crush bones to get to the soft marrow, it also helps the wolf eat most of its prey leaving very little waste at the killing site.
There is evidence that wolves have some knowledge of proper prey management.
In most cases several wolves are needed to bring down a large prey animal, although there are time when a single very skilled hunter is able to do so alone
Wolves hunt out the weak, the sick, the old, and the injured. They help the population of prey animals like the elk, deer, moose, and caribou, by taking away the weak and letting the strong survive. This is important part in the ecological system. By enhancing the strength into the herds. Without animals like the wolf to eliminate the weak, old , sick and injured, the herd of deer would swelter. They would become so numerous that they would starve to death. The wolf helps keep them healthy by insuring the breeding of the strong.Wolves also help feed other animals. When a wolf kills and eats, he sometimes can't eat it all. This leftover feeds animals such as the buzzard, the possum,fox, coyotes and eagles. They help keep the forest clean by removing the sick before it can spread.

This is helpful, especially because I was going to go off on a hunt without a slayer along.
