This pack was confirmed in 2018. The collared breeding male of the Strawberry Pack dispersed from that territory and paired up to form this new pack on Colville tribal lands. In 2018, one family member was killed in a legal hunt. As of the end of 2018, the pack had six members and was considered a successful breeding pair for the year.

The Nason Pack territory is on the tribal lands of the Colville Confederated Tribes, and the family is subject to tribal, not state, management. One pack member was killed in a legal wolf hunt on tribal lands in 2019.

The state’s 2019-2020 winter survey made a rough estimate of six wolves with pups confirmed. Tribal biologists have not confirmed the count, however.

The 2020-2021 winter survey counted a minimum of eight wolves.

Current Numbers: 8

Pack Status: Designated 2018
