snow tracks

Recommended Posts

went for a ride this crisp morning(not that I saw that much smirk.gifI did come across a deer kill that had 5 black billed magpies chompin on it but flew off as I approached)but I did come across some unusual tracks........now I'm not an animal tracking expert or anything but I think these tracks belong to an otter(not sure of course,also no water or lakes or creeks around)..I noticed these tracks along the road for about 600 yards or so...they would run,then slide on it's belly...run,and slide...run and slide....for hundreds of yards...not sure why..maybe just having fun grin.gif....jonny

Looks like a good size critter what ever it was. you don't have a closer picture of the track do you. also how far apart where the tracks, three to four feet etc.

Once saw tracks like that out in the woods. It came from a deer dragging it hind end in the snow. Don't know if it was hurt or not, wasn't any blood.

You may have came across tracks from a Fisher. They like to run and slide like that.

no,I didn't take any close ups of the tracks but I was thinking on the lines of a fisher also(was thinking otter) ...the tracks were certainly not from a deer(no deer tracks on the road at all) for sure as the animal jumped in "leaps"(like in the weasel,mink, fisher family,etc.) the area between actual tracks was about 8-10feet or so including the sliding areas...one can see in the first photo where the animal came down on his 2 front feet(foot prints in the beginning of the slide area) and folded them under to start the slide,I was thinking the animal was traveling cross country and was conserving some much needed energy by doing the sliding thing....just a theory grin.gifjonny

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
