cracking pics there sean, atleast you can be arsed to do a write up on your bird/ days accounts etc, I just haven't got the time lol,

as for hooding its each to their own, the female im flying was 6 years old when I got her(imprint) tried hooding her but she wasn't having any of it, it was hard enough to get her come to the fist, think she's been flown to the lure which is something I don't do.....again my choice, I cracked her eventually, but hooding a bird the that just wont have it or thrashes around when hooded will resent you in time

 

You can learn older birds to accept the hood.as my mentor had a friend male steppe eagle and the person only used it for display and he was 14 years old never used a hood on it and with a wee bit of working with him the bird accept the hood.as ive said in a few post back everyone is different about hooding their.as it's up to yourself if you want to hood your bird.
