    Maybe this will be helpful to some folks...

    I took advantage of the snow and walked the outside perimeter of my feathered friends' digs to do a little predator print reconnaissance. I extended out farther into the woods with each pass. I have multiple squirrels, one rabbit and a deer with a limp. Light snow is a great canvas for prints. I also walked directly in their prints to "erase" them so I can determine new prints in the future.

    Here are a couple links to help identify some critters' prints in the snow.
