Unknown scat in woods
« on: April 16, 2013, 06:13:52 PM »
Here are a couple of pics of some scat that I came across while shroom hunting.
No I did not find any  :(

 

 
 

 

I think I know what it is and if it is it is unusual for this area.

What do you think?
The knife is 6 1/4" long.  There were five of these droppings spaced about four feet apart on a path.
Whatever it is has greatly disturbed the soil around a number of trees.  Places where I usually find mushrooms.  :(

Deer.

Even a moose sometimes will have a change in their stools. Most of the time it's oblong round pellets, but some times it's like cow pies. ;D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

The deer scat around here are always loose pellets.  I have never seen this conglomeration before.
I was thinking black bear cub. A couple of folks swear they saw one in the woods a while back.  We did have a fellow down the road busted for keeping wild animals including black bear and big cats.

I don't know what deer eat up north to have droppings like that, but down here deer droppings never look like that.

Here is a shot of one I think similar, not as "new" or fresh, or reconstituted with some rain.
Snap shot of a few minutes ago.  Some similarity.

OWW- It's deer scat. Just like humans, what they expel doesn't always look the same.

No way. Its definitely whitetail deer. Looks typical of what we see all over michigan. Somebody go get Corley5 if you want an expert. He was a DNR poop counter for over a decade.
