Then next two were together...
There may be some deer tracks mixed in with this one...
When showing tracks, it's REALLY helpful if you put something in the pic to show the size/scale.
Those appear to be squirrel tracks unless they are bigger than they look in the picture
snow tracks are also deceptive in size even if you have scale. The prints change quickly as they melt, freeze and age. So unless they are super fresh it's tough to be sure of size
#1 is a rabbit track #2 is a coon track as is #3 along with deer tracks
Sorry about the scale thing...
I was thinking #1 was rabbit, #2 was squirrel (very tiny, considering snow melt), and #3 was squirrel (same print as 2) raccoon and deer
Eta: Really want to set up a game cam...
Squirrel my butt unless its the worlds biggest squirrel weighining in at 15 pounds. Its gonna either be a coon or possum because of the the long fingers and the thumb. Squirrel tracks have a weird palm pad mark, trust me i hunt em and deal with them all the time. The v shaped trackes are deer.
Um. #3 says squirrel, COON, and deer. The one print is teeny. The coon looking one was MUCH smaller than the other coon tracks we found.
try this page - it's a chart of common tracks ...
In fact, it's kinda funny, because I just did a quick search to see what I came up with to post here, and this is the exact same chart my kids used last week for identifying local wildlife with their scout troop ....
ITS A RACOON you can tell by in the first pic the track has a extended heel.
Thanks for the link DTRM
