Went out for a little drive and hike today to try and learn about my local area some more. Marked a few high ridges that would be good for glassing from, and hiked around and found quite a few fresh tracks. Lots of javelina tracks that were very fresh, some slightly older deer tracks, and these.
Here kitty-kitty.... Since I didn't draw a deer tag, I was looking for some potential spots for bear, or lion.... Looks like I know a place to check out in another month.
If you look at the very top of the image it shows the three-lobed paw pad, which differentiates it from a coyote track. Also no claw marks, and the toes are larger and more spread out than a coyote track. This one isn't a huge cat, but it's solitary which is good enough for me.
