Baker County

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Baker County AKWA Map

Current Baker County map (pdf)

Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity (AKWA) certain preventative measures are recommended to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Though not required, non-lethal measures are important to reduce depredation.  If depredation becomes chronic and lethal control become necessary, ODFW’s ability to lethally remove depredating wolves will be dependent on the extent that non-lethal measures have been used and documented.

Cornucopia Timeline

2022

April 19, 2022 – In 2021, the Cornucopia Pack breeding female produced three pups that survived to the end of the year.  The pack was not counted as a breeding pair since no breeding male was documented in the pack during or at the end of 2021.

2021

April 21, 2021 – In 2020, the Cornucopia Pack produced at least two pups that survived to the end of the year, but was not counted as a breeding pair as the breeding male did not survive to the end of the year.  Radio-collar data showed a 166 mi² use area with 81% of location data points on public lands and 19% on private lands.

2020

April 15, 2020 – The breeding male and female of the Cornucopia Pack bred for the first time in 2019.  The breeding female is a radio-collared disperser from the Pine Creek Pack, and the breeding male is a radio-collared disperser from the Walla Walla Pack.  The pair produced three pups that survived to the end of the year and was counted as a breeding pair.  Radio-collar data showed a 162mi² use area in the Pine Creek and Keating WMUs with 92% of location data points on public lands.  The remaining 8% were on private lands.

Lookout Mountain Timeline

2022

April 19, 2022 – Due to chronic depredation activities, eight wolves from the Lookout Mountain Pack were lethally removed in fall 2021. The remaining wolves for the pack included the breeding female and one juvenile; an adult male joined during the winter. This pack was not counted as a breeding pair.

2021

April 21, 2021 – The breeding male and female of the Lookout Mountain Pack bred for the first time in 2020.  The pair produced two pups that survived to the end of the year and was counted as a breeding pair.  Radio-collar data showed a 216 mi² use area with 80% of location data points on private lands and 20% on public lands.

2020

April 15, 2020 – The collared disperser left the area in December.  Resident wolf activity was confirmed during the winter count.

2019

June 14, 2019 – A new AKWA has been designated by ODFW in the eastern portion of the Lookout Mountain Unit (Baker County).  A collared disperser from the Middle Fork Pack moved into the area in late April.  Two additional uncollared wolves were documented with him in early June.

April 8, 2019 - OR37 was not documented during 2018, so this AKWA is discontinued.

2018

April 12, 2018 – OR37’s radio-collar failed in 2016, but he has been documented on trail cameras in the Lookout Mt. WMU in 2017.

2017

April 10, 2017 – OR37 was a resident in the Lookout Mt Unit, but his radio collar failed in July 2016. Remote camera photographs continued to show him to be alone in December 2016.

2016

April 26, 2016 – OR37, an adult male, was radio collared in January 2016.  He crossed the Snake River to Idaho within 3 weeks, and later returned to Oregon at the end of March.  He has since used the area shown on the AKWA map and appears to be alone.
