The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I recently risked my health to go swimming in a seriously infested pond to find a disc that I threw in the day before and possibly a few others. I ended up finding 16 other discs in the process. I found a good buddy's disc and another that didn't belong to a buddy but I know the guy and I couldn't keep the disc and feel good about myself. My question is- should I return a disc to someone when I am the person that did the dirty work to retrieve the disc. I always return discs that I find on dry land, but I kind of feel like if that person wanted that disc back they would have done the same thing that I did. Is this gonna screw up my Karma!?

Return it... its good karma
be cool, return it to it's owner
Yeah...I agree...return it.
do unto others...I've gotten in my fair share of muck holes to grab a disc I lost only to return with someone elses. even if the person didn't want to go to the trouble to get it that piece of plastic obviously meant something to them. I return everything I find with a name and number. just a name, I'll do my best, but even if I can't return them I don't throw them. you never know when you'll come across a golfer that has their name on a disc you nabbed from a scum infested pond.
You know . . . this may be 'bad' but you did the dirty work. Return the disc for a small fee say $3. I would gladly pay $3 or $4 to get some of my discs back. If I could get my red storm back for $4 I would be so happy.

The local store will buy them and sell back to you at what he paid for them, good guy.

However, if you found a disc under a tree, just call.
maybe im the only one that gets joy out of seeing the persons reaction to the returned disc that they had written of to the water gods.but just the smile and thanks they give is payment enough .i couldnt charge but have payed kids for going in to get discs but they never asked for the payment
deep down we all know what the right thing to do is...
I'd return it, besides. You don't know if he tried to find it. He just might have and wasn't as lucky as you. No name or number on the disc..Merry Christmas, it's yours! but if there is. You gotta try and return it.
I have left a few discs in the water and I'm not willing to go after them. I do not expect to get them back. If you leave it its gone, not yours anymore,its been abandoned, finders keepers. If you know the person thats different, give it back.
Return it. I recently lost a disc in a very green pond. I searched 3 separate days for over an hour each time and never found it. Luckily a week later when someone did find it, my friend saw him pull it up and bought it back for me.

Just because a disc is in the water does not mean the owner wanted to leave it. Always give it back, life's too short to be greedy.
I agree Try to return it. Tell them where you found it, and they might just tell you to keep it. Anytime I have tossed a disc into water where I left it or couldn't get it I didn't really expect it back. If anyone was willing to jump in for their own discs and was lucky enough to come across any of mine, if they called me I probably would just tell them to keep it.
return the disc the "I recently risked my health to go swimming in a seriously infested pond to find a disc" statement is a little over the top IMO, you went into the water to get back YOUR disc.when I was younger I might have done the same thing...but now I am old and a disc is a disc.
in what order did you pull out your disc??? was it the first 1st or 16th, if it was the first why did you stay in the infested water to pull out the other 15???
Return all the disc you can and leave the rest at the edge of the pond, what happens after that is out of your control, your a good man Jeff Vest
