by Mark MacAllister

Page 5 : January 2006 - December 2006

Throughout January, 2006, researchers located the Aspen Pack in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness. Sub-adult M871 has been exhibiting dispersal behavior, but remained within in the Aspen pack alpha pairís core use area.

During February 2006, researchers located the Aspen Pack in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness. They also located sub-adults M871 and F861 (formerly of the Saddle Pack) together in an area about three miles away from the Aspen Pack alpha pair.

For March, April, May and June 2006, the Aspen Pack remained in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness.

Throughout July 2006, researchers located the Aspen pack in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness. While project personnel have yet to observe pups, AF667 continues to exhibit denning behavior.

Throughout August, researchers located the Aspen Pack in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness. While locations throughout the denning season indicated reproduction, project personnel have yet to observe pups.

In September 2006, researchers located the pack in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness. On September 8, they observed four pups and AF667. On September 10, they captured and collared two male pups, m1038 and m1039. On September 14, they captured and collared female pup f1040.

The Aspen Pack continued to occupy the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness throughout October 2006.

Throughout November, researchers located the Aspen Pack in the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness Area. On the November 13 telemetry flight, researchers observed six pack members.

Throughout December, the Aspen Pack continued to use areas to the northeast and southeast of the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument.
