I want to hear some good stories about encounters with animals out on the disc golf course. What are some crazy things that have happened to you? What kind of animals have you seen out on the course and what were they doing? Once, me and a buddy saw a dog chasing a red-tailed hawk for about 300 feet. The hawk was flying 5 feet off of the ground and we thought the dog was going to get it but it eventually just flew up. It was pretty sweet. Let's hear some more!?!?

I was out golfing on Central Michigan University's Course when a blue heron landed about 3 feet from the pin. Since they are protected in my area, we had to wait about 10 minutes for it to fly away.

a few cool things have happened to me...I've hit a few squirells at Warriors Path SP in Kingsport, TN...I hit at deer as it was running out of the woods at Charley Vettiner in Louisville and Knocked a bunch of baby birds out of their nest at Borden Park in Kingsport, TN....we also had a group of baby skunks that we took care of off of hole 24 at Warriors Path SP....it was wild and the mamma was no where to be found...to this day I think Jason J-Bird Light is still taking care of them haha
I have seen some strange stuff on the course. I have hit a squirrel or two in my day. One of the funniest things would have to be when the squirrels get there revenge. I have seen squirrels take a whiz on my buddies disc. This has happened on two different occasions. Sorry but i cant resist....... Better to be pissed off than pissed on.....
My usual weekly round is early Sunday morning. We often see and or hear herons around Hudson Mills. On two or three occasions in the past few years, we've witnessed their most excellent mating rituals. Big wings spread out, jumping up and down, totally national geographic stuff. We should start hearing them any week now. Then again, they might be slow this spring, like everything else. I know in past year's I've often heard the earliest frog calls by the end of February. No chance for that this year, should be a more typical frog year.

Watching the seasons come and go, along with all the changing flora and fauna, is one of the best reasons to be out there golfing, IMHO. Glad to see winter finally GOING!

Time to put my rollers back in the bag for tomorrow's round (as long as some freak snow storm doesn't come through today...)

I was playing with my brother at River Bend park in Troy, MI on hole #3 I flipped my disc over to hole #5 and went looking for it. When I found it I was standing over a baby deer no more then 5 feet from me just laying in the tall grass. when it realized I saw it the thing jumped up and ran like a bat out of hell. I started looking around hoping mama wasn't anywhere to be seen. She wasn't thankfully.
Today we were playing at the West Course in Kendall Hammocks, Hole 12 and two of my friends were attacked by a squirrel. First time in five years playing at this course that I saw a squirrel attacking somebody.
I Was golfing at Ft. Stielicome, WA . My buddie mike lost one of his discs to the right of the fairway on hole #2 when we were looking for the disc we scared a rabbit out of the brush the rabbit made it about 15 yards when a red-tailed hawk swooped down and snachet that rabbit. Mike was so sad for scaring the rabbit to his death.

The red tail hawk does also enjoy chasing a good roller if you lay it down below him while hes perched

I was at Milo McGiver State Park in OR i threw an driver down the fairway on the way down a Squierrl just happened to be right were my disc was landing it did two cartwheels and ran off im glad the little guy was allright

I was at Riverside in Summner WA and they have a Redheaded Woodpecker that likes to Bang his head on the top band of disc Catchers. I gess you can say he likes to bang his head to metal.

Please exscues my spelling
so many good stories!
