Default Found Disc ?

Found a disc on Aug 24th, I sent a picture from the course and got a response from him wanting the disc back. I was out of the country from Aug 27-2 Sept. I have texted him several times since the 2nd looking to meet and give him the disc back.

How long do I keep trying until I take ownership. (I would plan to sell it rather than throw it.) Don't want to sell it and have him come calling back.

LE Z Drone if it matters any.

Many many many many many many many many many many many posts like this.

And they all end in, "It's your call."

But I do dislike selling found plastic. I don't believe it's right. Hang on to it and it might make your own bag or give/trade it to a friend that will use it in their bag. Or like Scotty said you may finally end up finding the owner.

It's not yours to sell. Toss it in the trunk and you'll eventually meet up. I got my Havoc back after 2 months the other day when the finder sought me out at a tournament in his home town.

you really need to make the effort to return it. If it was yours wouldn't you want it back? Plus you never know what you may get in return.

I threw a new Surge SS on a water hole in May that hit a branch and did the lost splash down dance. Someone just returned it to me. I gave him a brand new 1st Run Crank as a reward.

Found a disc in some heavy, HEAVY shrubbery trees the other day (don't ask what >I< was doing in there...ugh). Texted the guy, no response in a few days....I'll give it a while. No way would I sell it, would rather give it to someone who may use it or to a complete beginner who has zero to 2-3 discs.

That's my take.

Stick it n your car and wait a few months. It's no longer your problem to contact the owner but give him a chance to follow up and get it from you.

Why is doing the right thing have to have so much gray area. Don't look for rules or guidelines, just do the right thing, man.

I have an old Saturn Comet I found in the creek at Indian Creek Park @ 3 (?) years ago. The only ID on it was guys full name and PDGA #. Tracked it down to a (then) local ATL player, sent him a few PM's thru the ADGO site. He replied a couple times saying he wanted it back, but never sent me an address. I still have it in a box in the shop.
Maybe I'll run into him one day...

I've been sitting on a disc for about a month now - called the owner, told him where I work, gave him my number, it would be a snap for him to swing by and get it, but he still hasn't.

I'm in no hurry; it can just sit on the computer under my desk for as long as it takes.
