Why don't people call back?

I was wondering why people don't call back.. I have lost numerous discs while playing disc golf and almost never get a call back. I only have once and I still don't have the disc. But this week things took a turn for the worse, I've lost 4 discs. Premium plastic and this costs $60 to replace.. It's really messing up my bank account and getting me very angry. I'm hoping at least one of these discs will be called in within the next few days..

Axiom Envy, Neutron Amp, and Neutron Tangent were all lost @ Basett Creek over here in Crystal in the last 8 days.. If you find them please contact me..

Water, trees, or forgotten?

Sucks either way. If I lose a disc, I don't ever expect a call back. I've called so many and I still haven't gotten a call. My karma must still be in the negative for some reason. I blame Obama.

Me too man.

All of them trees or bushes. I tried looking hard for all of them. Spent over an hour combined looking for them. I am just having absolutely terrible luck as of late.

Because you would have to call them first to get a call back.

I am curious how you are losing that much plastic on a mainly open course. Hole 1, to lose a disc would have to be a terrible kick left off a tree 50 ft to the water after an aweful shot. Almost unrealistic. Hole 2, I still don't know how people are turning discs over that far into the water but it seems to happen. 3 would have to be a terrible shot period to go in that water, 4 no chance of losing a disc. 5 should never happen but I have found several down in the water run off area in easy spots. 6 wide open up hill, 7 downhill, should never lose a disc, 8 wide open straight shot, 9 turnover, the extreme turnover shot would possibly be bad but shouldn't be lost right? 10 if you crush a forehand or anny it's possible to be in the water. 11 shouldn't lose a disc, 12 shouldn't lose a disc. Bassett is a course you shouldn't lose much if any plastic if you watch discs until they land. Op either needs to watch discs for the entire flight, not just 80% of them or is having serious issues. If you said you lost a bunch at brp, the valley, maybe even Bryant but Bassett?
