about a week ago at roland park, we had a hurd of cows come running up over the 3rd fairway. probably about 30 or 40 of them. the crazy thing is they came from the opposite direction of the where the farm is located near roland park. left some cow plops to navigate through though

I was taking photos of the tees over at Freedlander Park and someone had set up their "campsite" right on the woodchip tees:

A friend of mine teed off on hole 9 at Morley field and his disc hit a sign off to the right about 60 feet away and it stuck in the small space between the sign and the metal post it was attached to

I just have to say you just made my day. I laughed out loud at this one . I don't know why, but it really struck me funny.

Couple weeks ago, the wife and I are playing a round at tyler state park in PA. We get to the #5 tee and theres a couple of geese just hanging out. So I start whistling and snapping my fingers to get ones attention. So one goose just came over and stood next to me and waited while we teed off. So as we're walking away we noticed that the goose is following us, so i kept tapping my disc against my leg to keep his attention and he just kept on walking. He'd walk up to either me or my wife and wait while we picked up our discs and made another shot and again, and again. (me and the wife are new to disc golf and only had 1 discraft buzz a piece so we were throwing quite a bit..haha)

So he follows us to the next tee and so on for about 4 more holes. Until we get to a little bridge that crosses a little stream, and he wont cross the bridge for some reason. I tried quite a few times to lead him on it and he wouldnt follow, wont fly. So as I was about to give up I figured I would walk him down a bit to where you could jump across and sure enough he followed down the way a bit and crossed with me and then back up the hill to the other side.

So after that we had to name him. I came up with "Gary the goose" on the spot, and he just kept on following. There was a couple times where you had to step over a log or 2 and he wouldnt jump over them so we led him around the log and so on. The course is actually pretty hilly and steep at times and completely in the woods, so its not like he was just walkign around in a field all day. Heres the link to the course

http://http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=29


So we get to maybe the 12th hole or so, and I happen to lose my disc somewhere in this thick woodsy area. I couldnt find this thing for the life of me, we searched all over and couldnt find it. We retraced back and forth thru thick areas of stickerbushes, dense underbrush, everything....yup, Gary followed me thru everything. I even lost track of him a couple times when poking thru the woods to a clearing and back and he was right there waiting for me when I came back. It got the point where I was so focused on finding my disc that I wasnt exactly paying attention to where he was, and I'd turn around..... "theres Gary"....haha

We didnt keep track of time, but I mustve been looking for my disc for about 30-45mins. The disc was brand new, the first time I used it, and it was my only one. I, scratch that...WE....were determined to finish this course. All the sudden, BOOM, theres my disc, alot farther than I thought, and completely covered in leaves and sticker bushes.

So we continued on, passed a couple groups of people with Gary bringing up the rear 15' back and heard whispers like "dude look at the goose, hes following them"...So I yelled over, "oh yeah, thats Gary hes been following us since tee #5" (its probably around hole 20 by then I forget....oh yeah its a 27 hole course...ahah) So anyway, as we passed another guy working on the park who had a white t-shirt on like mine....Gary stops, and I happen to turn around to check on him and he seems confused on which person to follow. I walk back to him and start tapping my disc and hes not moving, the guy happens to look up probably thinking im bothering the goose, and I tell him that hes been following me for the last 2 hours at least and the goose thinks I'm him cause we have the same color shirt. After a bit more tapping, Gary makes the right choice and continues onward....haha

We finish the 26th basket which was in the middle of a field and under a tree, and Gary sits down all the sudden to take break in the shade. Im suprised cause he hasnt sat the whole time, so we waited a little and he wasnt budging. There was a guy waiting to play the 26th so we headed for the 27th and waited at the tee for Gary. Nope, he wont move...so we figure hes done following us finally and we play the 27th hole. As we get to the final basket we turn around and theres Gary rushing over to us like "Wait!....I didnt say good bye"

So we HAD to wait..ahah...Finally he gets up to us and starts following us towards our truck, when ALL THE SUDDEN.....Something swoops down from above......I caught it out of the corner of my eye, and I look up....ITS A FALCON!....A FALCON JUST TOOK A DIVE AT GARY!!!....I look up at the tree line and this huge falcon is perched on a branch watching Gary like a hawk (haha) So I start smacking my hand against my disc and BARKING at the falcon, and he flys off the branch and gets to another branch a bit closer to us, and at this point....I KID YOU NOT!!....IM READY, WILLING, & ABLE....TO RUMBLE WITH THIS FALCON!!...We've come too far in our journey to lose out to some PUNKASS FALCON!

Meanwhile Garys like "lets get the Fork outta here" and starts running...haha....Which was the first time we've ever seen him run, so in the midst of panic, I coulnt help but laugh....haha. Then we notice that WE'RE following GARY for the first time in 22 holes...ahha

Anyway, the falcon gave up, flew away and we got some cell phone shots when we got back to the truck. Then we said our goodbyes and watched him stand there in the same spot while we drove off.

THE END

Tom

Awe. You should've taken him home and kept him as a pet. Seriously, how cool would that be? Someone comes over to your house "omg, there's a goose in your living room!" "Nah, that's just Gary the goose... he's legit."

Gary

Broken,

That's one of the best stories I've ever read! Too funny. I can't believe the hawk attack, and I can even picture you ready to fight him Gary's one incredible goose, and I hope you see him again. Please let us know.
