  1. certain topics of interest, Falconry adventures.

    I would like to fly a Spar one day, but I am having lots of fun with the Goshawk. I flew a German tiercel for 8 years who flew at 1lb 5 and he took quite a few LBJs in his career as well as crows, duck etc. A Spar would be great fun to fly especially a musket but they seem very fragile and reckless and I doubt if many last more than a few seasons.

    Thanks for sharing.
  3. Harris hawk

    Why not have a look at a local Falconry Club. You could go out and see it done also it may get you a few contacts that could help you later on. I know there is a Yorkshire Hawking Club and I'm sure there will be one in your area. I would read as many books as I could on Falconry mate. Try Emma Fords book and also Philip Glasiers to begin with. It will make it easier for both you and the hawk if you can get someone local to you that is experienced and could help you.
  4. Harris hawk

    I would get some telemetry as well mate. There are too many Harris' lost because they don't use it. There are usually a few second hand sets going mate. I think there is a few sites on Facebook where they sell them. Get a set and practise tracking with it before getting the hawk.

    Good stuff mate. I considered breeding from my old female imprint gos. She laid and brooded 4 eggs every year but I never inseminated her unfortunately. Its a real shame as I lost her to a fence strike last year. She may not have been big nor white, but in my eyes she was as good as any. I wish I had a female out of her now. I hope you have a good breeding season mate.
  6. Brittany spaniel

    Look at the Rathcormac Shooting club. They have a few working Brittanies. They may be able to point you [no pun intended] in the right direction.

    Hi mate What birds do you breed out of curiosity Cheers
  8. working homes required

    I had a full KC Reg Border dog about 20 years ago that was a handy earth dog. If the fox didn't bolt immediately, then you were digging..LOL A friend also had one that was pretty much the same. They were tough little dogs.
  9. Brittany spaniel

    I've got three of them that I use with both the hawk and also the gun. The first Brittany I bought and still have, is from the Hawkwise Kennel which is from Steve Wright. He is the UK Club president. I also have a young bitch out of the old dog and also a bitch I bought in from another kennel. Try looking up the UK club on the internet or Facebook. there are a few litters advertised, but I would be very careful where I bought one from. Some say their dogs work, but are mainly used for showing - not that the dogs don't work, but its just some are very pig headed and are not very biddable and may want to hunt into the next county...LOL Like some one said earlier, why not get one from your friend in France?
  10. Looking for a mentor

    Good for you mate for looking for a mentor first and not just buying a hawk..... If you are on Facebook there are a few Falconry groups on it where someone may be able to help. As I've said on a few posts previously, you could always join a Falconry club. That way you can go on field meets and speak to different folk and see if its for you. I would just say be careful who you get to mentor you. Make sure they are experienced and know what they are doing..LOL Good luck.

  14. German Male Goshawk

    A couple of pics of some crow hawking with my Gos. No car hawking involved, just sneaking around trying to get a close enough slip.
