The holes were about as big around as my finger. I thought about dew
claws but I didn't know they could be that big. (Not much of a
hunter.) These tracks were pretty big and deep, though - it makes
sense. There were at least two other deer with him...much smaller,
and I'm sure they weren't running.
Thanks for the info.
