The title had "Death" in there somewhere - just can't recall whole thing!
Brothers - younger was Denny and I think older was Rick, go camping, Rick
NOT telling Denny he is being chased by enemies. At one point in the story
they go to hear rangers call to wolves, and the wolves reply, which Denny
is thrilled to hear. The cover I remember had two boys in a canoe, rowing,
and looking back over their shoulders.... THANK YOU!

Death at Their Heels" by Margaret Goff Clark.
"Denny's first camping trip is far from ordinary; it seems he and his
17-year-old stepbrother Rick are being pursued from campsite to campsite by
a well-financed, gorilla-like escaped killer against whom Rick has
testified. Somehow Denny still manages to make the most of his experience
-- attending a ""wolf howl,"" learning about ecology, and even meeting a
girl -- all in between skirmishes with his pursuer. "
