In the early days, pig villages are very helpful. Just remember, if an uncontrollable amount of hounds come at night, just run around your camp fire at night eating quickly and wait till day to run to a pig village. Near end day games though, bee mines are so SO SO helpful, cheap to make, and if Klei nerfs those too, I'm so screwed xP

I just set up my camp at a walking distance away from a beefalo herd, so if the hounds are approaching you can just make your way over there so the hounds attack the beefalo instead of you.

ok, thanks for the advice guys. i will try those techniques. but what if you far away from everything, do you just have to continue running ?

Well to tell ya the truth, ever since they made hounds harder, I always set up base near a pig village near the first few days of exploring and trying to find one. If you made a base and already got somewhat far into the days, then you could possibily move your base then....
