LOL.

That was a good story. I use sticks, or a putter. A buddy of mine is a good climber, so he's good to have around too.

Lacrosse ball works for me. Sometimes i throw sticks, depending on how it is stuck in the tree.

I shoot a golf ball with my slingshot. straighter line than throwing it and it can get in tighter spots than a softball.

there is a big tennis complex that quite a few holes and fairways go around. and apparently rich people don't have to walk all the way around the fence if a ball goes out. long story short i use tennis balls

I guess it really depends on the tree. In Canmore, we're looking at 80-100ft+ trees in a valley between the elevated tee and basket in several cases. It's actually hard to throw or climb those if you get it stuck high enough. I've encountered discs there, spent a few minutes chucking rocks at them and moving along as I'm sure the owners had done hours or days before. Best thing for getting discs back is this case is Karma and ink. (Tape measure, lol!)

I usually climb the tree. Being 5'10" and 140 helps a lot on that category, though

Tape measure ever since I saw the idea on here. Get a good one that wont bend and you have a 20 foot pole.
