    Yeah Bobcat tracks look about the same. If it was a cougar they'd be about the size of your hand with the knuckles bent.

    "P.S. I still can't go more than a month without a haircut. Must be a military thing. I tried growing it out but can't stand hair touching my ears."

    Yeah, you would look pretty funny with a page boy cut.

    They look like Jackalope or Chupacabra tracks to me.

    Nailed it! I don't think Jackalope or Chupacabra shave in November either. I don't think!

    Kris, it is Movember. It does no stand for Mountain man facial hair month even though you do live in the mountains in a “cabin”, but moustache month. You need to grow a moustache not a mountain man beard. You could join the Movember movement, I’ll support your efforts.

    Track identification can be confusing without a scale. Were they this big? bear, big.jpeg When a rear bear pad overlaps a front an imaginative mind thinks it must be Bigfoot.bear tracks.jpeg
    Depending on gait, soil & weathering a black bear may present many a different track sometimes resembling both cats and canids.bear.jpeg.

    Whatever it was it was likely stalking the endangered Idaho Catalope cat 88b7e9c5d3bab0d65a850001fc23b0fe.jpg

    Seriously, the lack of any distinct claw imprints makes me think Kris came across the trail left by cougar or bobcat . Maybe something like my neighborhood family. Mother has kicked the kids out by now, typically they are cared for about two yearsAttachment 199350

    I agree with Fred, Rocky and others. I would bet my TW that is a Mountain Lion track. Wolf looks very similar but you would see claw marks in the track. I have spent a bit of time in the woods chasing critters too...

    my 1st thought was cougar... except cats directly register i.e. their rear tracks directly cover their front tracks, leaving a trail of just two prints. your critter doesn't fit this pattern. ?? chupacabra nortensis?

    admiral,
    in the interests of science, maybe you could rear mount your camera and slowly drag a roadkill carcass calling here "kitty kitty" to see what you attract?

    My record for not shaving is 10 days. I just can't take it. I'm usually 5-6 days and shave. I do not wear a suit at work. I don't know if a beard would look OK or not, but damn it starts bugging me at day 7. I can go couple months without the haircut. I get it done short. But it's the ears and neck and takes too much time to dry (don't own a dryer, just towels).

    And my whiskers would be salt and pepper. My lighter brown hair hides my gray pretty good so far. I will probably start losing it in another decade or so. Ah well... Ride ride ride. Hair won't stop me.
