What quarry are  you after and how many days a week can you fly? They need answering first.

As a rule, goshawks are NOT a first bird. Reading books wont prepare you for a gos no matter what anyone says.

So what bird will prepare you for a Gos Not a Harris thats for certain.

a sparrow hawk or maybe a coopers hawk :thumbs:
