Jefferson County

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Jefferson County AKWA Map

Current Jefferson 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. Wolves in Jefferson County are currently listed as endangered under the Federal Endangered Species Act, so all management related to harassment and take of wolves is regulated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, not ODFW.

Metolius Timeline

2022

April 19, 2022 – A new AKWA has been designated in the Metolius wildlife management unit (Jefferson and Deschutes Counties).  Since August of 2021, there have been public reports of two wolves.  ODFW documented that the wolf use appeared to be resident, prompting the designation of the AKWA.  These two wolves were counted for the 2021 annual count.
