So it was either trying to bang me or definately not into threesomes
That's why I always carry several of these.

ran into someone feeding ducks at the local park on Hole 3 (talk about a slow start)

anyway, momma duck starts to waddle after us hissing all the way...turn around to see we'd come within about 5 feet of a bunch of ducklings.

If a turkey attacked me I'd probably fight back. I'm bigger and stronger than a turkey.

On the other hand, I do my best to give snakes their personal space.

Saw some hawks attacking magpies over a local city course several times. The hawks will catch them and drop then from several hundred feet and they crash into the ground. Pretty amazing to see in person as I have a disliking for the magpies.

On hole #1 of the T-2 course at Turkey Lake, I was almost killed by a Gopher Tortise...
Okay, no I wasn't...but when I put my putter slightly on his shell he was quite upset, hissed at me, and moved fast enough to get his head out of the picture...

It was fun to see "wildlife" on the course that isn't life threatening, though.

Nice, since there was no basket the buzzard is the target, so it's a buzzard ace.

It would be interesting to see what people would say if this happened during a tourney.
