Yep, it's a hog track. 

Yep, it's a deer track.  However, without any reference on size, hard to tell how big.  He does sink in the ground alot, but it looks kind of sandy.

I assume from the "what a hawg" title, that it is a good sized track?  And, more importantly, are you able to shoot it if you encounter it?? Wink

If so, good luck!

Definetly looks like a goos

Definetly looks like a goos sized track. Butsee that you are from Florida do they grow deer that big??  Kidding!!  I first wondered if it was a hog print.  I am no expert on hogs so I was just guessing.  Whatever left the track hopefully it is somewhere that you are able to hunt after it and good luck.

thats a Hog

You can tell it's a Hog track by how rounded it is and how thick each cloven is. Hogs have almost circular tracks whereas deer have somewhat elongated tracks, even the big Buck tracks are still longer than they are wide.

It is kind of hard to tell by

It is kind of hard to tell by the picture. Going by my experience from what I can decipher from the picture it looks like a nice doe print. I don't see any dew claws and the hoof print looks like it is together. On a buck the hoof would be separated a little and you would see distinguishable dew claws which I don't see. Maybe you are seeing something I am not. Hopefully I am wrong and am not seeing it correctly.

tracks

I first saw a track, went back and sat close by, and this is what showed up. Five (yup FIVE) shots later he was done and all we had to do then was load him in the truck. I kinda wish you all were there....lol.
