I might ask how you train a dog not to kill a ferret in the field? Socializing and conditioning them to each other is the name of the game. While it can look crazy when everyone piles in I have caught 100's of hares with falcons and dogs and the birds have never got a scratch. All deaths and injuries in the field have been done by coyotes. My current falcon is recovering from being grabbed by a coyote 3days ago and is lucky to be alive.

Those are blacktailed jackrabbits but i have also hunted whitetailed jackrabbits. I have also taken 3 species of rabbit in the USA. Back home in the UK I also ran all the usual stuff before I moved over here.

Thank you so much for putting those videos up. I'm interested to hear how the coyotes get involved. Do the birds get injured when the dogs are running coyotes and they try to get in on the action? I'd have thought the bird would have held off if a coyote is the target. Or does it happen differently: accidently bumping into a coyote? Love to hear more details.

They are rare some over in Arizona but I have never seen one.

The coyotes know I am hunting hares and want to rob the bird if they get a chance. If the dogs are at the kill with the bird then all is good but if the dogs come back to me the falcon is vunerable on the kill if coyotes spot the action. That is what happened to the falcon she was on her own and didnt get out of the way of the coyotes fast enough. I mainly course along the edge of the city and the urban coyotes have little fear of humans. Just recently there have been attacks by coyotes in Denver on adult humans, and a young woman in Canada was killed while hiking in a park by coyotes. going to have to start packing in the field I think.
