I was told Ben Potter flew a high percentage Gyr/Saker and ran a pair of Salukis at Brown Hare very successfully.

It was a white gyr/saker falcon 3/4 I think). Did it take hares into double figures though ? :hmm:
As just a few kills does'nt make a full season in my book. All I've quoted is what I've seen in the field and not Forum Land hearsay.

Ha ha Class...

Each to there own, but for me personally the falcons I would fly would be for feather. But to stand over a warren for ferreted rabbits with a falcon is not for me. If the falcon was in a waiting on position, say 200ft up I would wince when the bird made contact with a rabbit form that height at speed....
