Gnu, we usually referred to "pellets," whether deer or rabbit, when encountering them in the woods. Bear droppings are more substantial and the term fits, though one does regularly hear "does a bear shit in the woods?" and I differentiate the act (shit) from the product (droppings). And "scat" fits all of it also, but in particular coyotes, who in their trickster ways are often found to have left a pile of stringy-hair-filled scat on top of a rock in the path or in some other distinctive display.
MOM, I put up some of the xmas lights this evening. I finish the rest tomorrow.
