Lookout Mountain Pack

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Lookout Mountain Wolves AKWA

Current Lookout Mountain AKWA 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.  Information about specific wolf-livestock conflicts can be found on the Wolf and Livestock Updates page.

Previous Lookout Mountain AKWA maps (for reference only – see above for current map)



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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.
