Too big for a coyote and a bit small for a wolf. I'd guess your neighbors pooch.

It could be a dog it looks a little big for a coyote most coyote tracks I see are not this big. It looks small for a wolf and there are not that many around here. but where this track was found there are no dogs for miles. maybe a wild dog I also thought that there would be more of a nail inprint as deep as the track was. front foot of a digger?

well i figured a coyote track for about 2.5" long and i guessed that brodhead for about 2" but who can really tell from a picture , try putting up a trail camera and see what you get, full cry may be right :wink:

Looks like a big male coyote toes spread in the mud . How long of stride did it have.

I did not take a measurement on the stride I was in a hurry to get to my tree stand. If it is a wolf track it is from a pup I also have seen how big they are. it just looks different then all the coyote tracks I see around here maybe it is the the type of mud it is in looks more round.

I'd say it's a pooch with trimmed up toe nails. It seems too wide for a yote and it's missing the nails in the top two toes.

I hate trying to figure out critters from one track. I like to look at the stride with multipe tracks and how they move. Most times I still get it wrong but at least I can convince myself. :D

wish I would have took the time to take more pictures and check the stride. maybe tracked it for a while see what it was up to.

It's definitely a "WHATCHAMACALLIT" or even possibly a " THINGAMAJIGGER" might even be a land locked Flat billed platypus ;-)
