Keno Wolves

Area of Known Wolf Activity


Printable Keno Wolf 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.  Assistance with these proactive non-lethal measures is available from USFWS, ODFW and the ODA Compensation Plan.  Information about specific wolf-livestock conflicts can be found on the Wolf and Livestock Updates page.  Wolves west of Highways 395-78-95 are federally listed.  The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, not ODFW, regulates all management related to harassment and lethal take where wolves are federally listed.



April 10, 2017 – Evidence of three different wolves were documented in the Keno Unit during April and July, 2016 and January, 2017.


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

Limited evidence of three wolves was documented in the western portion of the Keno Unit during January, March and August.  Their year-end status is unknown at the time of this report.


January 27, 2015 Sign of a wolf in this area was documented in December 2014. Irregular reports of wolf activity have been received over the past year in this general area and in January 2015 ODFW biologists documented evidence of a second wolf in this area. AKWAs are created where and when wolves have become established, meaning repeated use of an area over a period of time by wolves and not simply dispersal of wolves.
