Default scouting again, DEFINITE sign this time...but what is it....

Hey all, went last Saturday and found a good spot that I'll be hutning Saturday(from my previous post asking if 300 yds was far enough from the truck). I went back to that spot just to make sure I could make it there easily in the darkness of 3 am to get there first thing and sprayed some c more hogs that I got last year for Christmas to get the spot ready for next Saturday(apparently it lasts a good while and can be used for making new wallows, etc and is LEGAL per Panama City FWC office)....by the time I got my backpack on I heard hogs squealing....I clutched my bowie knife and my short camillus fixed blade knife and thought that it'd be nice to have that ruger vaquero 44mag that I saw at a pawnshop that I want for Christmas....and hightailed it out of there to return with a stand next Saturday(thank you for the stand anonymous PFF member...I think you have ensured my safety for my first year of hog bowhunting. I'll return it to you if I ever get a new climber...)


Anyway, went to the north side of the parking lot where the deer supposedly are...and found the below a good hike up there. Other than that was a huge spot of flatted grass about 4-5 ft in diameter that I didn't take a picture of that I didn't think was anything until I saw this. I'm not sure what the tracks are, I was hoping deer but from google searches it appears to be more hogs.

I'm hoping for a deer this year, but if I can stick some bacon I'll be so happy.

There are multiple pics from different angles but only 2 tracks.

Sounds like where a deer was bedded up IMO

Edit, just seen pics, pigs may have been bedded there..

The grass was turned all kinds of crazy directions. Not all flat like the bed I saw but definately stirred up

Default Pig Bed

Looks like the pigs spent a little lazy time there rolling around and getting the mud into the grass and left there foot prints in the mud. That's why the grass is muddy.

Hogs actually make a nice bed. They gather up foliage grass palmetto leaves, kinda looks like a papason chair on the ground. Rooting is very noticeable because they ain't to bright and will root up entire area along side of the road, telling the whole redneck community I'm here, wakes wakey ham n bakey. Hogs foot prints are like deer but deer are more pointed in the front and hogs are rounded. I'd say armadillo left the grass like that while a deer watched and thought what kinda dumb sheet animal eating worms.
