Current Shamrock 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.

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.
