    Harris hawk flying age

    I know of several people flying their hawks well into their twenty's. I would personally fly them until they die, there is no need to retire your hawk if they didn't hunt in the wild they would die. As regards the bird not responding, this is a never ending process anyway. The birds weight should be adjusted due to its response. If it is getting older maybe its muscle consistency/tone isn't what it was, therefore an adjustment could be tried.

    first hawk

    Thank you! Yes she's great with the dog and ferrets and quiet at home. Couldn't ask for a better mannered hawk.

    first hawk

    That's the thing I have had a male that flew at 1lb 41/4oz and he was unbelievable a really gutsy little hawk. Took huge buck rabbits and cock pheasants regularly. The males are more agile and exciting to fly but on the other hand the females are more lethal because of the extra weight and power. I have a female here that rarely misses on ferreted moorland rabbits. She will regularly take eight or nine in a session.

    But also get kicked off more. Males are also more ariel and take to slope soaring much easier and tend to be more birdy (liking feather).

    Good luck with it but cover yourself as its illegal to keep a native BOP without a closed ring and the relevant paperwork.

    The Astro never let me down the Alpha has the training facilities on the collars and it does a lot more than the Astro. Its touch screen and you can pan on the map settings etc. A great bit of kit.

    Had the Astro then the Tek2 now gone back to the Alpha. You won't beat the Garmin without any doubt. After a period of time the Tek 2 gets issues picking up the satellites. Also on the compass setting on the Tek 2 you'll find its very inaccurate. One minute its bang on next minute its the complete opposite direction. This happened with all four handsets.

    Whats The Best Boot

    the extreme cold weather boots are lowa and are excellentA lot of my mates bought, these they aren't made by Lowa and the eyelets all pulled out after a few weeks of use.im on my second pair after ten years and not had any problems At all they even have a vibram sole and they’re the same as my mates Lowas Yes they look like Lowas but aren't made by them. My mate used to work in the stores and get them all the time. I know about half a dozen lads had them and the eyelets pulled out of the leather. Glad yours were ok.

    Whats The Best Boot

    These ones http://www.altberg.co.uk/product/moorland-extreme-boot/ lovely and comfortable, but leaked. I also tried the Black islander Scratchless boots and they leaked too. Both these boots have the Simpatex lining instead of the Goretex.
