Fall and winter homesite use by wolves in northeastern Minnesota



Fall and winter homesite use by wolves in northeastern Minnesota



Canadian Field-Naturalist, 961: 79-84



Post-abandonment homesite use by wolves (C. lupus) was studied by radio-tracking and simulated howling in 2 packs in the Superior National Forest, Minnesota. Pups, yearlings and adults returned intermittently to former homesites up to 4 mo. after abandonment, usually after prolonged separation from the pack in early fall. Returns sometimes exceeded 1 wk. Preferred summer homesites were revisited most frequently. Visits declined as the season progressed either because attempts to relocate the pack were not facilitated, or simply because separations became rare. While temporarily at homesites, single wolves replied significantly more to simulated howling than when anywhere else, suggesting that homesites may provide reassurance for separated wolves.
