    Found this back near the stacks in the field and have no idea what animal it came from.

    Looks like a raccoon. They leave tracks that look like little hand prints.

    Don't the claws show, though?
    I'll check it out. Thanks.
    ETA: Sure looks like Raccoon after some Google-fu.:cool:
    Didn't know what to look for.

    Just my guess, but unless the tracks are really fresh you might not see fine details like claws. Maybe if they were in mud.

    These are fresh. Well, they weren't there yesterday evening.
    The pics I found showed w and w/o and are pretty much identical.
    Good call.

    could be bear but the fingers look a little long?? Plenty of them up there so that is likely. Headed to Winnipeg next month to chase some black bears so I will try to get some track and hopfully "paw" picks!

    Nah, these are were way too small for bear.
    I'd still like to see bear tracks or sign if you get pics.
    We have a neighborhood bear.
