    A Plea For Guidence

    The jesses sound like a great idea! Thanks for that. He smashes the bunny lure and trades off fantastically so I've every confidence he will do it well. Can you recommend any lamps?

    I didn't slip him at the hare, I know the dangers and its definitely not my intended quarry. Thanks for your reply.

    A Plea For Guidence

    Thanks for the reply, He chased a hare yesterday which was pretty exciting but scary also, the hare made it to cover and ren pitched in a tree. I thought about lamping but isn't it a bit muggins? But yeah Im going out tonight to have a scout about. Applied to the bfc. If I can find someone to ferret with I think it would be the best way. Thanks

    A Plea For Guidence...

    Hi there Sorry Scotland is a bit far to travel, but thanks for the offer! I have a mentor but hes quite busy displaying his birds and moving house at the moment, He does hunt with his Harris but doesnt use a dog or ferrets. The thing is he lives quite far away and I dont have a car at the moment, Will be buying one thiis week hopefully. I have some nice woodland but cant seem to find any rabbits. I understand the importance on entering thats why Im posting. Norfolk is full of massive fields, rather than nice small patches of cover.Frankly Im pissed off. Hopefully I can find someone to ferret with and do it that way. Hes a great bird, really nice temperament. Just don't want to let him down. Im not giving up though so no worries on that. Many thanks for the reply Arctic

    A Plea For Guidence

    Hi everyone! Im starting this thread in order to ask for a little help (a lot) I am currently training a Harris Hawk (my first bird and ambition since I was a child) At this time he is ready to be entered (hunt for the first time) I don't have any ferrets at the moment because I wouldn't know how to work and manage them, however it is another aspect of falconry I wish to learn about. The permissions I have to fly the hawk on seem to lack any evidence of rabbits which was surprising and disappointing (I guess this shows my inexperience) I was wondering weather there was anybody nearby (North Walsham, Norfolk) that would be willing to let me and my bird tag along with them this season and learn how to use the ferrets successfully. Of course I would be without the bird until I acquire my own ferret and allow the hawk to become accustomed to it avoiding the obvious nasty accidents in the field. Thanks very much for all your time in reading this post! Rich

    Hi everyone Im starting this thread in order to ask for a little help (a lot) I am currently training a Harris Hawk (my first bird and ambition since I was a child) At this time he is ready to be entered which is more daunting then I ever thought it was going to be. I don't have any ferrets at the moment because I wouldn't know how to work and manage them and also because at first I didnt think I would really need them however it is another aspect of falconry I wish to learn about. The permissions I have to fly the hawk on seem to lack any evidence of rabbits which was surprising and disappointing (I guess this shows my inexperience) I was wondering weather there is anybody nearby (North Walsham, North Norfolk) that would be willing to let me and my bird tag along with them this season and learn how to use ferrets successfully.
