Bear might've been looking for a lost Champ Groove...

2 weeks ago we were playing this course: https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=3538. There's a small stream that you cross on the walk to hole 1, and some nice-sized salmon were running in it. We went to get a better look, and there in the mud was a fresh trail of 10 or 12 well-defined bear tracks. The shiny thing is a quarter. We didn't see the big guy.

Yikes, I've played that course alone!! Very secluded. I felt I was being watched, a couple times. Maybe it was that bear

Sometimes when I hit Pier Park in Portland OR proper, we see young peregrine falcons learning to hunt up in the trees and on the ground in the brush, apparently unshaken by the presence of people and DGers.

I got to thinking one time... you know, there does seem to be a dirge of cute, fuzzy, forest mammals in Pier Park. Maybe the presence of falcons goes part of the way to explain why.

Apologies for the lousy image quality, but until this trip, I've never come across an iguana on a course, and Orangebrook is teaming with them. Just another non-indigenous species that seemingly all over South Florida now. Saw quite a few that were definitely in the 3-4 foot range.


Buggers can move pretty fast... on a warm day.

Florida has iguanas in the wild now? Are people just releasing their pets all the time in Florida?

Apparently... and they certainly seem to be thriving there. Saw at least half a dozen along the banks of a canal at the end of the block my mom lives on... never saw one in the wild when I was growing up.

Iguanas and Pythons are now rampant in SOFL. The states animal control services have started handing out bounties on the Pythons as they are taking over the glades with no real predators to stop them. Apparently snake hunters from Asia and Africa are going to FL to cash in.

I foresee python and iquana skin boots and such increasing in popularity.
Wouldn't doubt you could give the meat to homeless shelters. I've heard iguana's actually pretty good.
