Establishing a Home & Raising a Pack
Slough Creek Quests
Wolves are very territorial. Packs and territory are constantly changing as they battle for space to hunt and raise pups.
In WolfQuest, there is not enough room for you and your mate to secure territy in Amethyst Mountain so you have moved to Slough Creek to establish suitable territory and choose a den site. There are already several other wolf packs with established territories, which they patrol and defend. Two young wolves would have a hard time wresting control from an established pack. Best to seek an unclaimed place away from the competition.
Find a Den
A den may be located in a rock crevice, a hole, or even a tree stump. Ideal dens are safe from neighboring wolf packs and other predators but close to elk herds. Pups are born in early spring and emerge from the den after about a month.
Once your pups emerge from the den, you and your mate have to work hard, bringing them food, defending the den site from predators, maintaining your territory, and bonding with your pups.
Journey to a Summer Home
As the pups mature, they no longer need the protection of a den. The pack moves to a more open area or "rendezvous site" within their territory. Getting pups to the rendezvous site is the last mission of the Slough Creek episode. Feed them as you lead them, protecting them from predators and finding safe passage across the terrain. Once you reach your rendezvous site, spend the summer growing strong pups until the next eposode Tower Fall is released.
