Is there a way to tell the difference?
I hope this fairs better than my question about buck and doe poop! Lol

Yes a Buck will leave a hock print
With this crowd there is no telling where it will go! lol
Only sure way is to see them standing in it!
I assume you mean the dew claws??? Either way, completely false. There is no way to know.
I'd always thought big split hoof marks are bucks??
The previous post should end this thread (long winded version of x2)
You can't be serious?
I hunted on a lease in Illinois and the lease holder could tell the sex, age and # of antler points of every deer track he saw. I was never able to conclusively prove him wrong so he must've known what he was talking about...
Even young deer of either gender are known to somethimes have larger than normal hooves. As said above, no way to determine sex of age by tracks. Dew claws and spread apart hooves are usually seen when deer are running in soft soil or snow.
I love this site!! *hehe*...
Yeah actually I am and I'm also titled to my opinion and my opinion is that when the hoof is small rounded then it's a doe or young buck but when the hoofs are split and pointed its a buck it's what my grandfather always told me and he is a wise man and I respect him and his is my roll model so I'm going by what he says!
That's awesome. My grandpa used to tell me to be quiet when we were fishing or I'd scare all the fish away. We always caught a bunch whether I was quiet or not. I sometimes wondered if he was just trying to get me to be quiet. Now I tell my girls the same thing. I know for certain I'm only trying to get peace and quiet though. Not sure if grandpa really believed what he was telling me or not. I do however challenge yo to start examining the hooves of the deer you shoot. I've shot some does with some big ol pointed feet. In general bucks that are old and mature do have bigger feet. Usually when I see a really large track I assume it was a buck that left it but i can never say for certain. I do feel I can tell a gobbler track from a hen track.
