it's a canine track, no doubt. big track too if thats a quarter. i was gonna say possibly big ass wolf at first, depending on where you live, but now i'm thinking it's a huge dog.

Canine Track

Mud makes for what appears to be a "bigger" animal, than it really is.

i kinda figured, we have a rhodesian ridgeback hound and a few basset hounds that run around and i assumed it was them, the pads just seemed awfully round for a dog so i thought i would question, but i'll take your guys word for it.

btw, i live in clarksville, tn. there have been some mountain lion sightings down about an hour south, but its been a few years which was the biggest reason i questioned these. thanks for the help

Canine tracks show claw marks. Felines walk with their claws retracted and therefore there are no claw marks.

What ever it is, it's still big.
Better be watching your back.
