    being a trapper myself, they do look like coon tracks but they are a little long looking for coon tracks, im still saying coon though. definetly not a bear, bear tracks are more round.

    They look big and padded for coon to me but they may be different in Your neck of the woods? For walking in snow there aren't any signs of forward movement either. No tail drags or face marks in the snow. It is as though e feet moved straight up and down. Kinda weird?

    Coon tracks, they look longer than normal because of the snow.

    I've got a pet coon over 25lbs. Those aren't coon tracks. Too big. and there would be marks from the tail and would be spaced that far apart. weird for sure. There's a squatch in those woods. Those are the squachiest tracks I've ever laid eyes on.

    A coon for a pet? I thought you were the one shooting coons at night with your bow? Anyway, do coons make good pets? Is it inside or outside pet? I can't imagine all it would get into if left to roam the house all night and day.

    I was going to say something from the weasel family. I see a lot of racoon tracks out hunting and they don't have the filled in web look like those.


    Looking at your boot print and the animal tracks I would say they animal tracks are probably 4"-6" long depending on the length of your boots sole.
