Default What Kind of Animal Tracks are These?

I am struggling to make them out. I first thought a full deer with the dew claws included, but I am not too sure now. There were no claw marks so that rules out canines. Maybe a pig? I don't think it's a cat.

Any help? The tippet is for size comparison.

Wild troutin, blue linin, fly flingin, camo wearin, redneckin elitist.

Those would be the front left foot of a K-9.. coyote.. as you can see the oval shape to it and only the 2 claw marks just above the top pads. A coyote has a signicantly smaller front foot than it's hind foot. You can tell it's the left foot by the side of the pad being deeper towards your tippet spool and the 2 claw tips are pointed away from your tippet spool.

The only little person you might find in the woods would be Steve Yates.
