there was two together.
Sorry, I meant to reply with a serious comment after the Jackalope, but then wifey started talking about something and it slipped my mind. In honesty I'm thinking Marten or Fisher, take a look at this, does this look kinda like what you saw?

Raccoons do "hibernate" like bears, but just like bears, they'll wake up from time to time and venture out. Raccoon hibernation is more just a sluggishness when their whole body slows down and they're very inactive rather than a true hibernation. Because of this they can go out and even hunt sometimes.

I saw a raccoon walking down the sidewalk in Oromocto last night, Surprised to have seen it.

Probably crossed at a crosswalk too, pretty smart critters.

I seen a roadkilled **** last week in that mild spell.Them bandits come out occasionally in winter when it warms up but I can't imagine them being out and about in this deep freeze?

As for the tracks in question....most likely a cougar.

I think it's coming into mating season for ***** right now which may explain why they are starting to run?

you don't by chance have a coyote blind on the little lake behind the mill do you, was out snowmobiling and came across one the other day and wondered if it was yours

I thought it might be, I'm hauling a bunch of bait into my site tomorrow, the dogs have been coming pretty regular, going to hunt it next week, if all goes well at work, now that it's staying lighter later in the evening
