I'll find it for ya!
I almost lost a couple today while playing myself. I almost spent more time looking for my discs then throwing them :( The course I was at has grassland fields surrounding most of the fairways. And their aren't a lot of landmarks to pinpoint a landing zone within those fields, so you can easily lose a shot if you don't see it land, or if you have shoddy depth perception. I spent probably close to an hour total hunting for my 150 esp Flick, cuz they don't make those anymore! I almost lost my Tracker as well, but I was able to replicate the same shot enough with another disc that I found where the first one had rolled too. One rule that seems to be true most of the time is check a little bit farther than you think it went.
I remember the first time I lost a disc, not just a stock stamp one, but a nice dyed one. I must have scoured the hole I lost it on for an hour or so. I knew that if I didn't find it I sure as hell wasn't going to see it again. Had to eventually walk away without it, and of course I never got a call on it. I was pretty mad at myself for it for awhile, but I learned a couple things too. Now at some courses/holes I refuse to throw anything that isn't easily replaceable. Also what comes around goes around, in time I'm sure you'll find quite a few lost discs yourself. And sometimes they don't even have anything written on the backside :)
it always bums me out when I lose a disc hope someone calls you
Never lost a disc!!! Amazing!!
Last time I did the same type of shot into woods, I didn't look UP!!! My disc caught in the Trees and was about 10ft up. Luckily, a guy in my group looked up and saw it....
