Here is my logic. You find a disc with a number or other means of contact, you contact that person. If you don’t, you are a dick. Plain and simple. If you find someone’s wallet on the street do you think you are just entitled to it? Do you not contact the wallets owner? Furthermore in lots of places having that wallet is possession of stolen goods.

Again, call on found discs. Could be the owner is coming back for it, could be it fell out of their bag and they didn’t notice right away. Any way you slice it, calling is the right thing to do.

I don't expect to meet up with people who have found my lost discs and they shouldn't neither.
Seems pretty reasonable.

I used to call, and that was what burned me out. Txt as to where it's hidden is what I'll do from now on.

Last disc I found with ink that I called, the lady told me she lost it a year before on a different course. She told me to keep it, when I see a guy looking for "his" lost disc. I gave it to him and told him he might want to cover the name and number.

Since only one of my inked discs has ever been returned, I generally set any I find out in the fairway and move on.

i never call. if youre irresponsible enough to leave your gear out, you deserve to have your plastic taken away. conversely, i dont write my name and number on my clubs because i am sure as **** not gonna leave a soldier behind...all this hippy karma bs is just that; bs. have your chick shave her pitts and call me.
