Page 2 : Pack Summaries

Arizona
Bluestem Pack - In July, the Bluestem Pack continued to use its traditional territory in the central portion of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest (ASNF). Bluestem wolves f1333, m1382, m1404 and f1405 have been located in the vicinity of the den during the month. Wolf m1331 has been located separate from the Bluestem Pack throughout July.

Elk Horn Pack - In July, the Elk Horn Pack continued to make broad movements within its traditional territory in the northeast portion of the ASNF. Visuals on the pack have not revealed the presence of pups.

Hawks Nest Pack - In July, the Hawks Nest Pack was located within its traditional territory in the north central portion of the ASNF. The Hawks Nest Pack continued to demonstrate denning behavior in July and three pups were sighted with the pack near its rendezvous site.

Marble Pack - Researchers continued to document a male wolf with a non-functional radio collar traveling with F1340 in the northwest-central portion of the ASNF. F1340 continued to display denning behavior during July. Researchers have begun trapping efforts on the Marble Pack in an attempt to replace the non-functional radio collar on the wolf traveling with F1340.

Maverick Pack - During July, the Maverick Pack traveled within its traditional territory both on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation (FAIR) and ASNF. Researchers have not documented denning behavior from the Maverick Pack this year.

Panther Creek Pack - Researchers have documented denning behavior from the Panther Creek Pack. This pack consists of two adult wolves and has been located in the east-central portion of the ASNF throughout July.

Rim Pack - In July, AF1305 has remained in the traditional Rim Pack territory in the central portion of the ASNF.

Tsay o Ah Pack - During July, the Tsay o Ah Pack was located on the FAIR.

Hoodoo Pack - In July, M1290 remained localized in the north-central portion of the ASNF. Based on this localization and howling documented from a pup, researchers are attempting to determine whether M1290 is tending to a den and pups.

Bear Wallow Pack - In July the Bear Wallow pack, consisting of m1338 and f1335, became an official pack after having been located together for three consecutive months. The pack has been utilizing the east-central portion of the ASNF. This newly formed pack has not demonstrated denning behavior in 2015.

Single wolf M1161 - In July, M1161 was located traveling in the east-central portion of the ASNF.

New Mexico
Coronado Pack - In July, researchers located AM1051 in the Gila Wilderness.

Dark Canyon Pack - In July, researchers located this pack within its traditional territory in the west-central portion of the Gila National Forest (GNF). Researchers continued to document denning behavior in this pack during the month.

Fox Mountain Pack - In July, researchers documented the Fox Mountain Pack within its traditional territory in the northwest portion of the GNF.

Iron Creek Pack - In July, the Iron Creek Pack continued to utilize its territory in the northern portion of the Gila Wilderness and in the southern portion of the Gila National Forest. Researchers continued to document denning behavior in this pack during the month.

Lava Pack - In July, the Lava Pack was located in its traditional territory in the northwest portion of the Gila Wilderness. Researchers have documented pups produced by the Lava Pack this month but have not obtained an accurate count. Two diversionary food caches have been maintained to prevent livestock depredations by the Lava Pack.

Luna Pack - In July, AM1155 remained in the Luna Pack territory in the north-central portion of the GNF. Researchers documented pup presence with the Luna Pack this month, despite the fact that no denning behavior was documented or observed.
