Fox in Maine

Fox trail in Maine.  We saw many prints similar to this one as well as the scat below.

Fox repeatedly marked small trees and things along the trails, you can just see his trail lead up to and away from the tree.  The scent marks smelled a little skunky which is consistant with a male fox this time of year (late December to early January).  This is mating season and he is busy making himself known to rivals and prospective lovers.
