    I say it's a rat.

    Too big to be a mouse.

    Experts out there?


    Here is an excellent close up of a good print, even got the foot pad!


    The same print, but in my boot print. Helps for scale, eh?


    Here is a hole the little bugger tried to dig; but ran into fence. He has done many such, and they seem to go nowhere. I check em out.............


    So this is a rat situation, would you say.

    NB: I am out in the boondocks, not in a town or city. All this activity is strictly NOCTURNAL, also.

    I had an eastern field rat as a best friend rat for four years...yep. rat prints.
    Mice feet would be closer together.
