Thankfully all of the tourneys were played in the late fall through early spring so the smell of the graveyard wasn't too bad...
hawk hollow is on a working cattle farm- we have had a couple of incidences of people throwing on/near corpses that we (the farmers) hadn't noticed (this only occurs with stillborn calves generally). whenever it happens i just tell them to chalk it up to a true agrarian experience.

Besides the usual Indiana Wildlife (deer, bunnies, snakes, woodchucks), I've had a crayfish/crawdad attacking my disc when I walked up to it. Yes it was 40 feet from a pond, but still, I've never seen them walking on the ground before. (had to take a cell phone pic of that one.)

Seen a large bird today flying down the creek. I believe it was a Great Blue Heron.

I have a few stories from my home course, since its 100% wooded, but I will start with this one. This was the worst experience I have ever had on a disc golf course:

I was playing with my brother and two other guys and I had shanked my second throw between the #17 fairway (the hole we were on) and the #10 basket. I put my bag down near my disc, and reach down to get the disc.

All of the sudden, my hand felt like it was on fire, and I looked down and saw something black and yellow on my hand. I first thought I had just gotten bitten by those big spiders, but then I noticed things buzzing around me. I had set my bag down on a yellow jackets nest in the ground.

I hauled ass out of there, but not before I got stung 3 more times. Then, they swarmed my bag, and we couldn't get with in 15ft of it. My brother found a very long tree branch, probably 20ft long, and hooked my bag and drug it away from the nest. We then dumped everything out and started to beat the yellow jackets that were still inside.

We finished up at 18, and sat down and talked about what just happened. They wanted to play another round, so I made 9 more holes, and I just didn't feel good after that, so I went home and recovered. I hope I never go through anything like that again.

Got barked at by two foxes today while looking for my disc on hole 3 at Barber park in Greensboro. They are some funny sounding critters, I think I was near a den.
