Recommended Posts

cracking looking harris, wish you all the best, please make sure you fly with telem on even if you just buy a transmitter, loads of folk will be happy to help track it down if ever need to, i started this way, till i could afford a reciever, ive helped to track a few peoples birds, feeling is great even if it aint your bird, plus it helps with experiance, your mentors should help you any way

wow what a beaut, best of luck with him. Ive always been interested in it and just recently bought a book on it but its so difficult to find a mentor

 

Out of interest how long did you wait from first researching and being mentored until getting your first bird?

 

 

pm sent mate :thumbs:

I'd be inclined to put some carpet down or a large piece of astroturf on the slabs :) He only has to bate badly or land awkward and his keel will be smack down on concrete :(

The birds talons will resemble a bull terriers toe nails after a 200 mile walk on concrete :blink: , give the bird to someone who knows what he is doing and for fooks sake get a differant mentor .
