    I agree, looks like a bear track. Also area 11 has a large bear population. I have a friend who wounded an elk and found it the next day and it had been eaten by a couple of bears, they walked up to the elk and the bear was still feeding.

    Ummm I count 4 toes which rules out the possibility of a bear. Correct?

    Definitely not a bear track. Canine for sure... most likely someone's dog.

    +1 on canine. I also think it's a dog. Someone mentioned cats don't leave claw marks. I think this is usually true since they have retractable claws, but it's possible for a cat to have extended its claws for some reason. So if there's a single track with claw marks, I wouldn't automatically rule out cat. That said, if there are multiple tracks and all have claws, I'd rule out a cat because I don't think they walk with their claws out.

    I would say if it was a 4" by 4" or Bigger I would go with bear also. If it is smaller I would definitly say Canine .... Maybe a Good Spot to put up a Trail Camera too get some Pic.s... If you do and capture what it is on a Pic.. And Then Post it.... That would be Cool....

    I agree with CrimsonArrow. Canine tracks are somewhat diamond shaped (as this one is) and they leave claw marks (as this one did). Cat tracks are more oblong-shaped and rarely leave claw marks in their tracks because they are retractable and cats don't have them out when moving.

    If I was a betting man, it is a young wolf that has dispersed to set up its own territory, just as CrimsonArrow stated.
