The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I stuck a disc in a tree yesterday and it took me a good thirty minutes to get it down. I usually use a baseball to knock them out. Last year I stuck the baseball in a tree and had to buy a new one. Yesterday I finally got the disc out with a large piece of wood. I told my friend that I was going to knock it down and then go home. Sure enough the next throw it came down. Then about a half hour later my friend stuck one in a tree. Both of these trees were barely 20 feet high but both times the disc was wedged in. We ended up getting both of them out.

What do you like to use for extraction? I like the baseball while another friend has a softball. Still yet another friend carries hockey pucks. One person carries a slingshot. I don't like to use rocks because they can come back down and hurt somebody.

I have also used climbing and shaking.

A Baseball sounds Good.
The wolf is stuck in the tree. Great shot by the way (I mean the photo not the actual shot).
Love the tape measure Idea adding mine to the bag now!
I keep a 20-25 foot long "shock-cord" tent pole in my truck. If I get stuck in a tree, generally I can just snap the pole together and reach up with it to tip the disc out.
thats a good idea
I keep a baseball and a golf ball in my bag...but have had better luck/results with water bottles
I saw a guy on the course who had bought a collapseable golf ball retriever. It collapsed to 16 inches and extended to 10 feet. He said at 10 feet it was a little wobbly but it still worked. He said he picked it up at a golf store.
I use a golf ball retriever with hook on the end that I keep in the truck mostly. It's about 4 and half feet long and extends to 24 feet. If it's a real wooded coarse or has lots of water, I'll carry it along. Works great for trees and water holes.
Good call on the golf ball retriever, I never would have thought of that.
I use my water bottle, that way I dont have to carry extra things in my bag. It that doesnt work Ill find a stick or shimmy my way up the tree.
thanx... ive been told to send it into innova
A lacrosse ball has worked well for me - small and heavy, yet rubbery.
