So we were playing out at Deerfield this morning and in between our 2nd and 3rd rounds, a huge flock of geese flew about 50 feet overhead, honking and carrying on as if there was no tomorrow. One of us threw a disc up into the air but it neither hit one of them nor took off on its own migration.

Oh well, maybe next time

A few weeks ago my buddy and I saw a big hawk come swooping in and land on a branch right by the tee on #8 @ Schenley Park. We stood there staring and realized he was beginning to eat a chipmunk, piece by piece. Man that was the coolest/most disgusting thing I've seen.

Walking down 17 at Kaposia, I saw a hawk swoop and barely miss a fleeing squirrel. After it missed, the hawk perched on a branch directly above the basket and closely watched me hole out. I see deer, turkeys and other common animals when I'm disc golfing, but this was by far the coolest experience.

I was playing somewhere in the early back 9 at Roscoe Ewing Park (can't remember specifically where, somewhere bwteeen 11 and 14) and saw a doe on the other side of the treeline. I finished the hole and after my next tee shot, the doe crossed my path and looked toward me like "whats up?". It was pretty cool.

I don't see them too often but I sure know geese are at Voyageur Park frequently! If you know what I mean! Lots of "Squishy Rocks"!!!!

I accidentally hit a squirrel that was running across a fairway with my Buzzz a year or so ago. He rolled and, feeling terrible, I ran up to it to measure the damage. He was laying there on his side in complete shock and horror, paralyzed. I could see he was still breathing, though. I poked him with my disc, and he didn't budge. I felt horrible. An hour later, he was gone! I think/hope he was just in shock and was able to gather himself and move on.

I've stepped over two black snakes, too! Good to see them, though, as they keep venomous snakes at bay. I'm not even sure there are many dangerous snakes in NC...
