Was out for a hike today looking for elk sign and ran across this track. Pretty sure they are cougar tracks but am not sure. That's an iphone and a handprint for a size reference. Those of you familiar with cat tracks, what do you think?
Looks like it to me!
Hard to see from those pics, if claws are showing, it aint a cat ....
yep, cougar. this rat is eating up my deer.
Your deer! His ancestor were here first contrary to the two legged claims.
Yes, those are lion tracks.
Pretty sure I'd take FullCry's word on this one...
Lion for sure! Canine tracks are most often confused with lion tracks. X always marks the spot for dog tracks! No X and 3 lobes are what I use to identify lion tracks.
Thanks guys. Knew there was a good chance of lions being in the area with all the elk and moose around but had never cut a track there before.

Having a house built in AZ unit 23. Was up to check on the build and the builder showed me lion tracks in the sand they were using for mortar mix. Seems big kitties, just like little kitties like to use sandboxes.
Now if I were to dump a load of sand in the forest behind the house would that be considered baiting?
