Looks as if it could be a large timber wolf or possibly a small grey wolf

How far apart are the prints in the pictures in the first post? Pumas don't normally have there claws extended -- but if there on a dead run after something they would. Also that could be the reason why there so deep. Just food for thought. Ether wolf or cat -- it doesn't matter -- if you find there tracks -- there most likely tracking you if your in there territory. Here's a site with Puma tracks. Some have the claws extended some don't.

The tracks varied between 35-40" from one to the next. I never thought about extending claws while running. Good point Jerry

The ones in the second row Down, in snow, next to a shoe print look nearly identical in size and detail.
