Default Anyone know for sure what this is??

I found these where a small creek meets up with a larger creek. There is an acorn tree near this, but there are no licking branches above these. I didnt know if they were actual scrapes or if the deer are just scratching the ground trying to find acorns. Any input would be greatly appreiciated.

Kinda looks like a raccoon did it.
The last picture looks like a raccoon track in it.
It was probably digging for a crayfish, or something.

Don't know where you live but it may be a Fisher or Pine Marten. Fishers dig in swampy, wet locations.

to me it doesn't look like a coon or fisher, looks like turkey scratching but I have never seen scratching quite like that.
