Sheep vs deer tracks
Does anyone have pictures of mule deer tracks and sheep tracks? I know sheep are more "blocky" and not heart shaped.
What about deer droppings vs sheep? What are your hints to tell them apart?
When I first started elk hunting I took pics of fresh moo cow track (I watched the moo cow make the track) I did the same for an elk. Each year I compared the pics before I hunted. It helped.
I know if I see any of those I will not care much about what sheep tracks look like anymore!
Don - Bighorn Sheep tracks attached and posted:
My grandfather used to run domestic sheep on the farm when I was a kid and it was easy to determine sheep from deer tracks...
Yikes some of those tracks I would have thought were deer. In fact 3 of the 4 I would have thought were deer. The lower right one is what I expected for sheep.
