This isn't necessarily true against a human. It's quite easy to hold the butt of the axe out so that it can be thrust or swung around to fend off attacks from the front (and deliver short-range counterattacks). This can even be quite effective against a single wolf.

As you say, though, wolf hunting methods are all about pack coordination, and I agree that a potential human victim who's down to nothing more than hand-to-hand weapons (which also implies a pack of wolves so extremely hungry and desperate that they'd actually attack a human) is probably toast anyway.
