How dangerous are bears and wolves to human hikers in the Finnish wilderness?
Hard to tell, the wolves don't even leave the bones: they eat EVERYTHING right down to the marrow for the cubs. But there's always a rake of free tents and expensive hiking gear to salvage afterwards.
If you're thick enough to head out into the actual wilderness not too far north of here not appropriately equipped for the terrain and the elements regardless of the season, then you're likely natural born food for a smarter animal. Wolves don't just attack because they're hungry: they plot and plan when and how to take you as a group. Lone wolves are a rarer sight but certainly more of a threat. If one exiled elder of the den (for example) happens upon you or you walk into his assumed territory, then things happen much faster. And it's never good. Either the hiker shoots the wolf or the wolf attacks instantly, and mature wolves aren't small. They go for the neck, the throat. One giant leap. Then you're fucked.
In fact, if you're planning on heading into the wilderness at any time year in Finland, let me know your GPS coordinates. We have a drone group on the block who are looking for interesting things to film from drones. We'll find you, then film you getting savaged to tiny edible morsels for the cubs. Then sell it on some youtube gore channel for sweet money.
That or buy a decent piece before you even think of buying a one-man tent.
Guns are easy to buy - and cheap.
Especially the Finnish firearms.
