so my folks back home in KY call me up and tell me about the tracks in the yard after a pretty good snowstorm last night

between my dad and I we have about 50 years experience hunting the area, Ive trapped for about 15 years so we have seen our fair share of tracks but this dosent really ring a bell for either of us.

our property is about 400 acres in eastern ky so keep in mind the animals of the area. At first I thought maybe a rabbit but the stride seems to be 7 feet and a fairly large print. maybe a big cat but we dont have those.

im stumped, anyone have any ideas?

these tracks are literally 15 feet from the furnace on the side of the house, dog has been kept inside due to the very cold temps



here is a good view of what appears to be the stride, 4 steps.

I would say a rabbit that was scared for its life and hauling ass!  I've seen them jump pretty far one time.  Never seen repeated jumps that far though.

Squirrel  running for his life or at least imminent perceived threat.  A perfect example.

seven foot mid-air "stride" is stretching for a rabbit.

that was my thoughts too but like you said ive never seen repeated steps like that, it couldnt be very heavy
in the first pic you see a shoeprint that compressed the snow, this seems to just have scuffed the snow up

I don't think KY has any kangaroos so it pretty much has to be a rabbit.

There's some other shit in the snow, too, but you can trap the carpenter and get him to build you a new deck. I'd use a twelve pack and some porno magazines for bait.

This. Owl tried for the rabbit and missed. It looks like one print because the snow is soft and got a body imprint as well as footprints.

Is your land "between the lakes"? Either it's that thing, or a rabbit running pdq!

Not rabbit....

They look like a squirrel or rabbit pattern, but I am suspect of a 7' stride. That would have to be flying to manage that, and if it could, I don't think it would be nearly that clean.  
A domestic cat can manage a stride about 4-times the length of their body, in a run, so if the print pattern is permissive of it being a cat, I'm leaning that direction.
