Out of curiosity (as I don't hunt BOP) how difficult is it to train them to the lamp?

Not that hard really just feed the in the dark using a torch to show the bird the meat then use a dummy dragging it with torch on it .. They soon get the hang of it quicker than any dog I've started off lamping

I just can't seem to get my red tail going at night, done loads of training with him at night, lure, dummy bunny, carcass etc etc, will chase and catch them all, but put a live rabbit down the lamp and it's like he hasn't got the confidence to fly at them, he goes to fly then just clings on to my glove and drops to the ground, very annoying! I've managed to walk right up to squatters and he still won't fly them!!pickled my head a bit! Any ideas??

My male Harris wouldn't fly them on the lamp at all mate. Totally refused any but would smash them in the day

It's so annoying mate, he will chase rabbits all day when out ferreting, yet at night just won't leave the glove!! It's a not good really, as I rarely have time to get out in daylight hours, so was hoping he would be ok on lamp, so I could get him out flying more and keep his fitness up

Have you tried dropping his weight? It can always be raised again.....but careful weight control is often the answer to get things moving......

Tried him up and down mate but no joy, he will watch them and Bob his head round, if he does leave the glove, then he will literally fly 30ft then just drop to the ground, he will fly at a lure, dummy bunny, pulled carcass and nail it from long range, this is what's so frustrating about it.

Fair enough mate, haven't experienced it myself, but I haven't flown a red......so just a stab in the dark (pardon the pun)
I know what I would try......

sound like lack of confidence, try using a lamp with a wider beam

maybe it been lamped before and had a bad experience, who knows without knowing its history
