Are these footprints of a bobcat or cougar ? I apologize that there is no reference scale in the image, but the footprints measured about 3.5 or 4 inches in both dimensions. I found these while hiking in a less trafficked trail near Mariposa Grove in Yosemite on 11/15/20.
Based on your estimation of size, they're definitely cougar. Bobcat tracks should be half (or less) that size.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has a nice track comparison page 9with dimensions): Distinguishing Cougar, Coyote, and Bobcat Tracks.
Those tracks are pretty fresh, too. That's a nice find and well photographed.
