Wild Animals/Tracks never seen before in this area
I was out deer hunting this morning and after I had left my blind I came across these tracks that walked right up to my blind. These tracks really caught my attention because of their size. I have not ever seen tracks like this before. They kind of resemble coyote tracks, but the size of the tracks would indicate to me as being a super coyote of some sort.
The picures do not have a size comparison to go off of but the size was around 3 - 3 1/2 inches in width and 3 1/2 - 4 inches in length.
Can anyone identify these tracks?
It appears that you have stumbled upon a large cat. Judging by the shape and size, it appears to be of Carniovra Felidae
descent, a Puma concolr
; aka, a Cougar/Mountain Lion.
The average Cougar/Mountain Lion will leave tracks of 3 to 4 inches with no claw marks. For reference, I would suggest taking a look at the Puma Field Guide
from the Cougar Network, specifically pages 35 and 42-47.
I hope this helps to clear things up!
