Shamrock Pack

Area of Known Wolf Activity

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




April 8, 2019 – No wolves from the Shamrock Pack were documented in 2018, so this AKWA is discontinued.


April 12, 2018 – In 2017, the Shamrock Wolves produced at least one pup, but it is unknown if the pup survived to the end of the year. The wolves were not counted as a breeding pair.


April 10, 2017 Reproduction was not confirmed in 2016 and the Shamrock Pack was not counted as a breeding pair.  Radio-collar data showed the pack used an area of 431 mi² and 71% of their location data points were on private land.


March 4, 2016 – From the 2015 Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Annual Report

In November of 2014, OR23 (a female from the Umatilla River Pack) dispersed to the northern portion of Wallowa County and later paired with a male wolf.  The pair was called the Chesnimnus pair in the 2014 Annual Report.  In February the pair moved to the Sled Springs Unit and did not return to the Chesnimnus Unit.  The new area they used covered 129 mi² and 90% of locations were on private land.  Three pups were produced that survived to the end of the year and the pack counts as a breeding pair.  Moving forward the new pack will be named the Shamrock Pack.
