Althought i wouldnt tell anyone to get a Gos as a first bird without an experienced Falconer to help,neither would i suggest a Harris.I started with,like many my age and older a Kestrel,and again i wouldnt suggest one of these as P/R Kestrels weights can be tricky to manage.A Redtail or Common Buzzard would be my choice as they will both teach you respect for a BOP (and thier feet!),they will teach you good weight management and husbandry.Harrises are too easy IMO
Jasper that bow is a corker lol,i had one for my female Buzzard you could have limbo'd underneath
it was mate from blue water pipe steel spikes and a rope top.If i posted it on the IFF id be court marshalled
