I agree. At the course I used to play, during the summer, you would see about 200-300 of these on the course. I lost my fear of them, after seeing so many, but I am going to walk up and introduce myself and shake hands.

Nope, personal policy: don't tounch the wildlife.

I read earlier in the thread of someone petting an armadillo on the course, sounds kind of harmless until you read that they can carry the leopracy virus. Not that there are a ton of lepracy affected armadillos running around, but why take the chance?

I felt kind of bad that I ruined some of her work by running into the web, but I am sure she got over it. I will try and be a bit more careful next time.

Wildlife on the Course

So far I have seen a roadrunner and a Texas spiny lizard.

What wildlife have y'all seen on the course?

Yesterday my friends and I were on the tee pad for hole 8 at Gordon Holton and these two deer come out of the woods. Long story short they ended up just walking like 8-10 feet from us just eating grass. One of them went over to one of the little ponds and got a drink then back into the woods they went.

I've seen tons of deer, I'm sure we all have, but for them to come that close was pretty cool.

Cool thread. I don't know why someone made this one though before I made one, like a year later, but, whatever.

Roadrunner and a Texas spiny lizard.

Oh look. I get to check the box again.
