This weekend, a disc golf friend of my posted a picture on Facebook of a huge rattlesnake he killed at at Crooked Creek Park, on hole #5 of the Pro 9, which often has tall grass and always has a swampy drainage area. In the picture someone is holding it at shoulder height, with both the head and tail drooped almost to the ground. It must be 8-9' long, 5-6" thick.

It's been the topic of conversation.

It's also not true. Well, not exactly. It's a real snake, killed in an area junkyard. The disc golfer who posted it, claiming it was on the disc golf course, did so as a joke.

I'd post the picture here but it's been pulled, after the furor it caused among park and public safety officials. Apparently if you post something like this on Facebook, word gets around. Who knew?

Technically, this is a story about a critter that was not found on the disc golf course. But it was, or at least was believed to be, for 48 hours, so I thought I'd share it anyway.

Hey Dave, that's a time honored and often effective tactic (works for favorite fishing, camping, and other outdoor spots). Don't tell everyone!

Out of towner: "How's such-and-such course?"

Local: "Beautiful. You'll enjoy it."

Out of towner: "Any pro tips?"

Local: "No, pretty straight-forward. Just watch out for rattlesnakes." [shows picture of some monster from anywhere besides the course/fishing hole/place in question]

Apparently when you do it for a public park next to a school, and the tale reaches Facebook, it doesn't stop there.

I couldn't see this snapping turtle when I took my upshot a couple of months ago at hole 14 at Wills Park, but I was sure surprised when I walked up to my disc. I don't think I hit it...

No pics, but I saw a family of wild turkeys at Hummel Park in Omaha, NE last Tuesday. A momma and about five or six chicks chasing her through the underbrush near one of the tees.

BEES. This past evening we were discing and my brother set his bag down only to find it swarmed by bees moments later. I noticed his dog started looking hurt and I thought she was getting bitten by something. I then saw several bees on her and I tried to get them off and I succeeded, also getting stung in the process. Poor pup was stung numerous times, I am not sure how many.

So for the next 10 or more minutes there was literally a small swarm of bees circling his bag and we had to figure out how to deal with it. I don't know why or how this happened but we suspect he set his bag down on a nest. It was nuts, I've never seen anything like it. This was also the first time I've ever been stung by a bee.
