Cheers stavross ive alwalys bin into hunting my older brother use to have terriors and luchers and i use to be out with him all the time but for me flying birds of prey is an amazing sport and i love watching them hunt have to be a fast runner for hares tho lol [BANNED TEXT] there catching them on the next field and ya gotta get there as quick as possible as they do give up a good fight!! The birds ive had have been kicked off more times then theyve kept hold of them
  7. The harris i owned had amazing recall i flew it on a hare once on the lamp and it was chasing it out of the beam i blew on the whistle 2 sharp blows and all you could see was the hi viz jesses coming bk towards us was one of the best flights it had but the red tail was a pain in the arse and very temperamental and would only do what she wonted to do lol so the dog had better recall then the red but not the harris ha ive got a male gos now will be its 1st season come sept so cant wait to get it out
  8. Cheers mate and thank you Yer the catch rate was alot more then day time not that its all about catching as i like to see the chase but working the bird with the lamp gets me out every other nyt and im not spending half my day digging the ferrits lol i was slipping the bird on hares/ rabbits at easily 100/150 meters away was bagging more then lurcher on some nyts

  11. Hi all ive bin doing falconry for a little over 8 years flown a mhh and a female red ive recently purchased a male northen gos and was thinking of hood training it but not sure on when to introduce the hood its molting now so i wont be doing it yet so the question is do i do it whilst manning or wait till ive manned it up? Also to when i introduce the hood would i use a sip on hood so its quicker and less stress full for the bird or not?? Any info will be greatfull thank you
