Down in Texas for a work trip, played yesterday and threw my disc onto a steep overgrown hillside. Started fighting my way through the tall grass and brush up the hill and ran right into a big web with a Black Widow hanging out right in the middle. Don't see those too often in Chicago!

Normally I would take a picture of something cool that I see out on the course, but in this case I jumped back and squealed like a little girl way too quickly to get my phone out. Good thing it was just a DX Roc.

Sunday I spent about 45 minutes minutes max. designing some new holes at a park in WNY. The area was slightly wooded but no overgrown grass at all. Afterwards, I stopped at a friend's house. While shooting the sh*t I felt something behind my ear. That would be deer tick #1. About 10 minutes later, his wife looked on my shirt collar and noticed what would be deer tick #2. And to cap it off, on my drive home, I looked down at my pant leg and there was lovely deer tick #3.
Needless to say, I showered & searched my entire body including using a mirror to look at my back and then washed my clothing in hot water and then left them in dryer for a good 45 minutes. I don't if I would call them critters or little monsters!

best to shoo those away. Mom probably isn't very far away and might just put a hoof through your forehead for getting to close to her baby.

more deer lore... i had an Ohio State Trooper tell me there were more motorists killed by deer that had been (non fatally) struck than in crashes involving drunk drivers.

Had an Indiana county sheriff tell me the same (after I hit a deer on an interstate).

LOL I thought this critter had more of an "EFF OFF" look. Nice photo though.

I have the opposite reaction for some reason. I forget about disc golf and would be perfectly happy hanging out with the critter. We get gila monsters, rattlesnakes, scorpions...ect here and im obsessed with all of them.

Maybe its from growing up with the bland wildlife in the midwest.
