Exceptionally poor cell phone pic of a huge owl at Emmitsburg Community Park. We heard the owl from halfway across the course.

Apparently wildlife photographers use expensive long lenses for good reason.

I am fairly certain I saw either a Red or Eastern Wolf at Rockland today. It was WAY bigger than any coyote I’ve seen and was definitely not a domestic dog. No picture cause Pinto Bean was flipping out and the canid was hauling ass.

I had 3 deer walk by me within less than 100 feet at Maytag Park, I continued to play and they were unconcerned.

I did too but it was a poorly made sign course in Pierre South Dakota from 1995 when the city did not know that actual good discs not promotional type cheep garbage existed. I made Course more challenging by my third time ever playing that is right 3rd time ever (yeah like so easy that on a few holes using just a Wham-O Frisbee you could get a 2, I did with a Wham-O jr Pro) my making it harder so I had to hit the sign in front or back as I did not want to ruin my discs going for the edge of signs on the sides. Now only 2-3 holes survive and might disappear when or if a new replacement outdoor pool gets put in. I never liked the course as I did hit at kid who I yelled at to get out of the way, he ran in front of the disc then turned to see it coming and just stood there getting hit in the wrist. Kid who was with a Native American only Daycare the people blamed me as a white though the kid or his mixed family did not and I even walked with the kid to the nerby hospital to get help for his wrist that got hurt. It was soon after another incident that most of the course got pulled except the first 4 holes even thought the in town basket course was not even an Idea yet in 2005. Now if the baskets. City eventually pulled hole 4 when parking lot got redone in 2013 due to the 2011 Missouri River flood.

That's Iowa for you, deer all over and accustomed to people.

Saw a red fox and a great blue heron at Patapsco Valley last weekend. Didn't see any deer but their poop was everywhere.

I don't want to give deer too much credit for being smart, but they do seem to have figured out that the humans who have funny backpacks and are not being quiet are safe and the humans with bangsticks who are being sneaky are not safe.

Rats with hooves. They are so common in Iowa City that you see more deer than squirrels. Sharpshooters were contracted to cull the city deer population so they don't die ugly from disease and starvation.

In several places around the USA, the number of deer in neighborhoods was so bad that they had special bowhunting seasons to cull them.
