Snow Tracks?
[Return to Topics]

When I woke up this morning I looked outside and there were some strange looking tracks on the snow. Most of the time, there are either 2 side by side or up from each other, but these were different. They were single tracks in a straight line and 8-10 inches apart from each other. They were fairly big. We can rule out squirrel, rabbit, deer and dog tracks. Anyone got any ideas on what these were? I sure would like to know so I can get my gun ready if I have to! Thanks.

Actually, years ago when my wife first came here we went for a walk and came across some tracks. I told her they were snow snakes, and they always traveled in pairs, she wondered if they were dangerous, and was actually kind of worried. They are usually 8-10 inches apart.-------- They were cross country ski tracks.

Like the others said, could be fox or coyote, we have plenty of both here in Clark Co. Ky. Where in Ky are you?

Sounds like fox tracks to me but Lazy Horse may be right. I'm still living in the past before coyotes invaded us and I'm not familiar with their pattern. Fox tracks would be much smaller than coyote tracks.

How deep was your snow so we can get a picture of how tall or how long the stride might have been, It sounds like human tracks.

Coyotes leave tracks in a single line, were there visible foot pads, or were they hoof type tracks.

Thanks to everyone that replied. We believe we have narrowed it down to a fox or coyote, and we've been hearing a pack of coyotes for a while. For those who asked, the tracks were paw-like prints and smaller than a very big dog. The single line threw us off since we've not seen them in the snow before. The scary thing is they were spotted by the chicken coop! My gun will be handy now!!

KY Plowgirl- Check out Beartracker's web site. They deal with tracking everything. I got some good information there a couple of years ago. Good luck, IHank
