Hes looking nice

Those anklets look good, ive got the same style on mine, i like how the riveted anklets keep the jesses away from the feet abit better than the traditional ones

The jesses are the wrong way throught the eylets aswell pal, just noticed

lol thought somebody woudl notice, my pal go tme a set as the dog chewed my others when she was a pup broke into me bag and ate all the new uns and the uld miging ones I keep for spares lol , so I asks me pal who was at a gamefair the other wek to get me a set oif mews jess, he comes back with some to hold an eagle lol, they in wrong way as he likely needed a lttle further weight reduction , btiu as he was on the glove I just slotted em best way I could, chaged em round later when he settled , not much mannign gunna be needed I reckon he start flyig n around 2lb mark maybe touch over

 

he came out a touch over his pull weight last year, so a little reduction needed yet , however he will enter to quary a little heavier than last year, and likely finish at a heavier weight again, Im thinking it could be down to retaining more muscle from being freelofted, he moved around a lot during the moulth in his chamber , must have a few thousand jumps from floor to perches behind him already lol hoping for a quick entry onto game, he happy if he killign and cropping up regular, mind he a nice sociable bird anyhow, would fully recommend freelofting to anyone after this summer, far less trauma than the old net job lol

Cheers Pointer, you lucky sod sunning yourself and fishing in foriegn lands, never mind soon be time for mud wind and open spaces pal, Dexter manning up well enough, he is still greedy as per last year, steady on glove , still bating a little on block now and again, very steady with dogs around , seems amused by the new springer my missus keeps, and the spaniel sensible around him as well,

 

Im gonna block him out for an hour or so and hope he takes a bath, the scruffy little sod, aint been in since he was pulled, then its back to manning , Im hoping he makes the jump for the glove today so we can get the lure reintroduced quickly, last year he took to the lure really well, food always a help where this boy concerned, then its back to dragged lure hare carcass, am praying we might be on for a slip or two next weekend down country on some big stubbles that where cut last week,, there be a few dogs out with us as well as my own, so am hoping he steady around em all, and manages to put on a good show. I want him back into the groove asap as we a little later starting this year, hopefully we last all wainter this time, he looks a little stronger this year, the glint is still in his eye, cannot wait to get started again
