Tracks...you tell me??

Postby duckahlr » Wed Nov 16, 2011 8:00 pm

A spot I've hunted since '05. I've been told that there are bears and possibly mountain lions there. So you tell me what they are? I thought bear at first but was told that the bear tracks would have claw marks. Some of them do, most of them dont.

Bear tracks bro----- I know is folk from the Midwest aint used to that.

Bear have 5 up, lion only 4 up. Meaning 5 toes above pad is bear, 4 toes above pad is a lion.

Makes for interesting shoot though!

Nice! Very Nice! Did you notice depth of the paw prints compared to boots?
Softer mud would have holes where claws rolled over. Like these
