Came across this while out in the great white NEPA today. When I saw the rut in the snow from a distance, I knew it wasn't made by a deer. I thought perhaps a bear was out and about. But when I got closer, I saw that it was not made by a bear.

I could not make out the tracks in the first two pictures, although they appeared to be small. I did find some tracks in the last picture which was taken about 3/4 mile away from the first.

I didn't follow the trail in the first two pictures, but I did follow the one in the bottom. Lead to a tree on the edge of a hemlock swamp and because the tracks showed whatever it was went up the tree, leads me to believe it was a porcupine or maybe a raccoon?

Sure looks like all porky trails I've ever seen out of rock dens and tree hollows. Fishers I've seen in snow bounced all over. No defined trail as such.
