    I'm not sure, tracks are not a specialty of mine. However, next time it might be a little bit better to upload the file as full image versus a thumbnail. When loaded as a full image people can blow it up and get really close, where as with a thumbnail it won't get quite as large. On my phone, I can't even see the numbers on the tape.I wish you the best of luck figuring it out.

    Rabbit?
     
  5. @EggWalrus suggested "Rabbit?"

    I think not, do they not have a long back footprint?

    It seems to me that whatever it was came and went along the same path so I think I see 4 paw prints per group?

    Rabbit was my first impression....or maybe a cat.
    Hard to tell when 'double trod'.

    Mink or weasel. Not sure if it’s shadows or snow drift but I can’t see # off toes. But pretty sure it’s one of those. It’s also close together- not running. Stalking- not hunting.
     
  10. We have both in the area, I will have a look and see if I can count toes.
