    Just wondering if anyone knew what this print is.I think it might be dog,but I don't know for sure because it was pretty deep in the woods.

    Pinecone does not look like a bear. This is what Pinecone looks like:

    Not exactly like that but close.

    This is a bear:

    Thanks, Tim. :D

    (Oh, and for reference, I have half as much hair and don't wear nearly as much makeup....)

    I'm not sure exactly but it does look like a bear track...I know I found a bear track a couple of years ago around here and took a pic, going to look at it now and compare. I'll try and find it and post it to compare. Wish there was an easy way to identify them!

    With the three claws at the top curving to the left like that? I don't think so. Not a dog. What dog has claws that go out that far? Not a domesticated one.

    IF it's a bear, it's a young one, but likely not. Even a young one would probably be larger than a man's hand - also not alone - it'd be with momma. Other than that, it's some other animal than a dog, IMO.

    I'll toss in the wolverine possibility, the first picture looks an awful lot like a wolverine print to me now, with the lighter pressure in the back of the print and the claws, five toes.
