I was walking my dog after a snowfall, and I saw these tracks in the snow. They're palm-sized. What the hell kind of creature created these tracks?



I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside of Denver. Are these turkey tracks? if so, where're the back toes? Could they be geese or something?

Bird tracks of some type is my guess.

Hard to get a perspective but it could be turkey or sandhill crane.

Probably turkey. Are those the only set?

Do you have any size comparison for us? Looks like a wild turkey.

Stupid things are everywhere around where I live.
Their tracks look just like that.
Unless my dog chases them, then they are farther apart, as they run to the ponds.
The poop should be about the size of your pinkie, and kinda rough and fibery looking.




GOOSE TRACKS

Those are 100% Raccoon tracks. Seen them all the time. Had a family living by the AMR hanger at O'Hare. Geese do not leave tracks t with heir toes mark that deep.

Its deffinatly a bird of some sort because the foot prints alternate there not side by side.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 5:48:02 PM EST
Could have gotten better pictures and something on the ground to help with scale.

I would have to agree with Racoon or maybe 'Possum...

raccoon tracks - nope. (possum look similar)
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 5:51:00 PM EST
Definately a bird. Likely a grouse, pheasant, buzzard, or crow.

I'd just set up some claymores on a tripwire and see what you git.

Gotta be a Wild Turkey....

Turkeys walk with their feet pointing straight ahead.
Geese waddle with their feed pointing inward.

Do you own geese? I do, so I call bullshit. Those look exactly like the tracks my flock of Toulouse geese leave in snow.

Raccoon tracks that are palm sized?
They are most definately NOT coon tracks.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 6:50:29 PM EST
+1 on the geese if you look close you can see the webbing between the toes
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 6:53:07 PM EST
Real simple. Its a Merriams Wild Turkey. Looks like this...





Link Posted: 3/15/2005 6:55:43 PM EST
Looks like Goose Tracks to me, webbed feet , too far apart for a duck.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 7:34:13 PM EST
I don' see no steenkeen webbin' so my vote goes for turkey.
If there is indeed webbing in there somewhere, my vote goes for goose.

Guys, it's not a turkey. Turkeys walk like chickens, feet pointing forward. Not like those in the picture, toe-in like the creature was waddling. Plus, if you look closely, the webbing between the toes. It's a goose.
Link Posted: 3/15/2005 7:40:58 PM EST
if it were a goose there should be about a thousand of the prints they don't enjoy going off on there own. theres a ton of them around here who didn't decide to go too far south. bunch of noisy baggage if you are asking me.

Whatever it is, you better ambush it and kill it.

I'm buying geese as the answer for $400, Chuck.

We've got lots of them around here; wild turkeys I haven't seen. Peacock's a possibility, too - those things are thick as thieves at the Denver Zoo.

Either Crow or Grouse given the 3 front 1 rear in the print.
