Hi Sean

 

Will you fly the female as well this season?

Its not so easy flying 2 goshawks at the same time.

I always flew one in preference to another [the female] which meant the male always had limited flying. :icon_redface:

Which is a shame as he never really reached his full potential.

 

The males can certainly be good fun though.

What will you fly him at - Crows?

Hi Dean

 

I personally wouldn't pick up a Harris' until it was at least 16 to 18 weeks old due to the noise they can make.

Sorry for butting in and I'm sure you know what your doing mate.

 

All the best

The German male Goshawk in one of the topics is mine mate.

 

If your Harris' is creche reared it should tame down and train easily.

I have not had much experience with Harris' myself, but they are THE most popular hawk used in falconry.

There is a reason for that :D

I have only ever flown one, a male that flew at 1lb 6. He was a great hawk and I had loads of fun with him for several years until I gave him away to a mate.

 

Are you going to hunt with yours mate?

Sounds good although I prefer a parent reared bird at 18 to 20 weeks. All the best with it though.

Now just fly a Harris.

Sorry for the late reply I have only just seen the replies to your post.
