These were taken this past weekend while deer hunting in MS. These are the only photos I have.
From the picture i dont see any claw marks so id say a big bobcat or mt. lion. Cant say for sure though
i am onboard with a bobcat from what i see
Thanks guys. The width based on hand width would be about 3 3/4 inch.
At that size, I would say more along the lines of a small Cougar ... either female or juvenile male ... 3¾'' is rather wide for a Bobcat.
Yeah, that would be a pretty big bobcat! I would say a small lion as well
Maybe another Bintrang. Ha ha
Leaning toward young lion
Too round to be dog or any other canid. These look like lion tracks to me. I've been told that an easy way to tell cat tracks from dog tracks is to draw a loop around the print. A cat will almost always be a perfect circle; dog tracks are more elongated, like an oval.
Not really enough clarity to tell. I have seen dog tracks look just as round as lion tracks. I used to hunt Lion with hounds and sometimes my hound tracks look just like lion tracks. The main difference I have seen is the back of the bigger main pad. Canine track will have one smooth arc. The feline track will have a shape like an M.
Don't see any claw marks for it to be a dog.
That's because you can't see anything. They are horrible pics, the tracks are covered in leaves, esp the most important part of the track...the back. It appears to me however that the one toe you can see (far left) has a nail print in the mud. Add to that the poster is posting from central Mississippi and you have yourselves a big 'ol dog track.
Mississippi leg hound.
Sasquatch.. thats my final answer
The surroundings do look squatchy!
