What are these tracks? Out hiking a friend of mine got into a debate.

I think these are Mule Deer tracks. My friend thought Elk Tracks? Obviously it's a mom and baby by the little tracks and close proximity.

Of course you have some joksters that say it is Bigfoot. According to wildernessarena.com Mule Deer tracks have two hooves that form an upside-down heart-shaped track with the rounded bottom pointing in the direction of travel.

Elk tracks to me almost could be confused as horse tracks?
