What poop is this?

Unread postby Jimmy wallhanger » Mon Mar 29, 2021 2:51 am

So I'm out scouting and I keep seeing these huge piles of scat. The first one I know is deer and its right close to the unknown poop. It looks liek deer poop to me but it seems to me in too big of a cluster.

The ast pic is the area I'm scouting thick swampy stuff


Thanks

Deer poop. Probably good chance bedded close to that area too.

I see a lot of that in spring since deer are usually concentrated together more during the winter.

Here is a runway I found after snowmelt. This went on for about 75 yards on a main trail. :o
