    I once spent about an hour following a large set of deer tracks through a light snow in the Adirondack Mountains in New York. They eventually led to a deer yard where the snow was packed down with hundreds of hoof prints. There were a number of trails leading out of the deer yard with so many tracks I could not identify the deer I started out tracking.

    I also lived in a small town in Michigan Dewman and train tracks right by the house. But every time I followed them, they always took me to the same place, down town. It got boring after awhile and I gave it up for girls, but those tracks sometimes led to trouble !

    If I cut a good fresh trail I will follow it for a while. The Benoits of Vermont look for a fresh big buck track and take off running to catch up to it.
    There is also a group in the Adirondacks that do lthe same thing - very productive for getting the big deer.

    This was one of favorite things in my youth.

    Sure, all the time when I'm wintertime small-game hunting or just hiking around. It was one of my favorite things to do as a kid before I was old enough to hunt.

    The only time I followed deer (bucks) in the snow was during deer season in Maine and New York

    Not just to see where the deer has gone, but I have followed tracks in the snow while hunting many times. Lots of fun, and the snow makes it easy to trail blood.

    One day that really set apart from other days was a set of a walking deer that was joined by a trailing dog or coyote,the deers tracks were near 20 feet apart at the beginnings of the chase,and the canines were around 12feet apart. I kept hoping I would catch up but never did,interesting note is the rabbit tracks that shot out from its hide along the chase trail ,his tracks about 8feet apart.
