What are these tracks?

I know, poor photos, but should give an idea? Just curious what made the tracks in the snow on a pond. I couldn't get closer.

I would say Snow snakes, very lethal and deadly up here, only come out at night!! Got to watch where you step, they'll sneak up on ya too!

Never seen tracks with a deep rut down the center and paddle like tracks off to the sides... Sea Lion? grin

I couldn't get close to the tracks. Guessing 2' wide? There was open water nearby and I couldn't see how far the tracks went...it looked like a long ways.

I would say it's a crippled bird. Maybe a duck or goose that was shot and can't walk anymore, so it is pulling itself through the snow with it's wings.

If there was a picture of how it started, or how it ended, it might be a little easier to decipher...I would have to go with a raptor trying to make off with something that was just a bit to heavy.

Might have been that danged Pilated Woodpeck from awhile back, with a humongus frikken grub from inside that bored out tree? eek

Something else....maybe the wind was blowing something along? Those marks on the side look pretty danged uniform?

This is a tough call. If it was a wounded bird, there would almost certainly be some variation in the tracks that appear to have been created by wings. Also, I would think that a wounded bird woud be fatigured after somewhat of a struggle to get through the snow leaving a break in the consistency.

This may be off-the-wall, but maybe it's a MOJO Goose decoy being pulled through the snow. Doesn't necessarily need to be turned on to get the wings to spin and cause a track like this.

Where are the person's tracks who was dragging it?

I am stumped.

Maybe the person used fishing line? A lot of fishing line.

Honestly, it's probably not as big of a mystery as we're making it out to be.

I agree, too consistent to be an animal...no resting, no checking backtrack,etc. My guess is someone riding a unicycle with "cheater" wheels on the sides.... the center marks look quite deep, so that is where the weight was, the sides look "mechanical" though, because of consistency. Have to follow the trail aways, both ways, to figure that one out.

p.s.- how about a 3wheeler, with big "Floatation" tires on the back?

How about a person riding a bike, tire track and pedal marks. The side marks actually look to be offset?

I wouldn't rule that out either. The only problem is the frequency of the contact on the sides. Would have to be in first gear, peddling fast. But looking at the depth of the tracks, I'm not 100% sold on the fact that peddles would be touching in this shallow snow unless the person riding had a shoe size 44 EEEEEEEEEE.

A komodo dragon. It has a tail, mammal or dird. I have seen Pheasant tracks with a drag, but not a solid drag. Maybe a fisher or marten.

I'm still sticking to an otter. Sliding on his belly pushing himself with his hind feet. I've seen it.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
