Finders keepers. It if was important enough they wouldn't have been left it behind. I'll ask people on the course the day I find it, but after I've left the course it's mine. I don't expect to get a call back even if it's marked. I probably lose 2-3 discs a year and for the last 10 years and I've only been called once, which is crappy, but not unexpected.

Bragging about your lack of respect for other people's property? Classy!

So, with that said if I don't mark my disc with name and number, i don't intend to get it back and I don't feel bad at all if I lose one or two out there and never see it again... I'm not gonna lose sleep and I hope whoever finds them gets use out of them and is stoked on finding a good un inked disc in the woods! It's kinda like an unintentional Pay it Forward type deal.

I say it's yours! (UNLESS someone comes up to you and asks did you find a disc on the course and they say the exact kind and color, then hand it over of course)
Wow, unbelievably jerky opinion and comment.

So the people know where they lost the disc but instead of searching more themselves they post on Facebook and hope others find it for them. This is why I don't blame people for keeping discs that they find. You can just leave it there or put it on top of the basket but that will likely just result in someone else taking it LOL

Apparently 2019 attitudes on lost discs aren't all that different from 2014 ones.

I’ve thrown discs, watched where they land, then looked for them for 45-1 hour and not found them there. Sometimes they take crazy ground play or slide under stuff, or kick wildly low but far away from where they “land”. Heck I just found one I swear I saw land in one spot about 150’ up and 60’ left of where o thought it was. It took mowing to uncover it in the chest deep grass.

Point is you can’t look forever, and don’t always see it land where it goes. Sometimes you have to keep playing and try to come back later, or another day.

Don’t be a dick, call people when you find a disc.

Please explain this logic. You've already assumed the disc is lost. Whether the disc remains buried in underbrush, at the bottom of a lake, or in someone else's bag, it's not in your possession. You'd rather it remain 'lost than having someone else throwing it?

I believe this to be the opinion of someone who can hit his lines and has a bigger budget. I have neither of those so I mark mine.

I don't expect the person who found my disc to contact me but its nice when they do. More often than not I will tell the person to keep it. Recently I lost a putter at a course 30 minutes from my house. I told him to keep it but the finder told me next time im in the area to let him know and we will play a round and he'll give me my disc back. That was very cool of him.

Alternately if I find a disc with info, I contact them. Its good karma. More often than not they tell me to keep it. The last guy was amazed that a disc he lost in Texas wound up in Michigan.

I have no issue keeping an unmarked disc. If I don't throw it, I can trade it in for something I do.
