A wolfhunter is a specific element of the sheepdog world. They don't just react to crises, they hunt down those that create them. They keep their nose high to the breeze, their eyes shifting and scanning, and their ears pricked, always searching. A wolfhunter yearns for the day when his (or her) skill can be summoned to protect the flock. That is not to say that they wish to kill. They are not wolves. They do not enjoy killing, but rather view it as a possible necessity in their ultimate goal of protecting their flock. There is no requirement to kill to be considered a wolfhunter. However, simply pinning a badge on your chest doesn't make you a wolfhunter. There is a high level of commitment, determination, and willingness to place yourself in harms way to protect the flock that makes you a wolfhunter. It is a title that is earned in the deepest parts of your soul through sweat and blood.
