bably "sensed" that I was there... She sat down and looked around.

direction for 5 minutes... I was leaning to the left in a not so comfort po=
sition so I said to myself, please go now... my back hurts, but he didn't. =
Instead, he lay down in the grass... and he continued starring at me (or my=
not camouflaged mic). I was completely still and after a few minutes he st=
arted to look around instead. The female passed him and lay down further aw=
ay to the right of me. After 10-15 minutes he joined her. They changed posi=
tions a few times and seemed to be in no hurry.

tomach closer and closer. The male followed about 30m behind her. She got =
closer and closer and when she had about 50m left to the red deer she got i=
n to full attack. The male wolf followed and they both attacked the red dee=
r bull. The deer defended himself really well with his big horns. He attack=
ed the wolves so they had to back off a few times. The wolves continued the=
ir attack from two directions for a while, but then they gave up and lay do=
wn in the grass. After a while they tried again, but the deer still defende=
d himself really well. He didn't make the mistake to try and run. They gave=
up again and the walked away to the edge of the field and lay down just in=
side the forrest. After about 20 minutes I heard a familiar sound. Wild bo=
ar heard was incoming...

so not much to listen to.

bull in front of me, that still was in the same position close to the wolv=

the field to attack the wild boars.
