Two Goshawks, Male And Female


Recommended Posts

Male 2011 PR, fully entered on Rabbit, done nothing this season so far, I usually start late. Flew last season at 1lb 10oz.

Female 2015 PR, ready for proper entering, works a Rabbit carcass at 2lb 6oz. Both would be classed as 'Northern Goshawks', although the male is out of wild caught Mother and F1 Father all originating from Finland. A10's both present. Both have been made to the Hood and well socialised with people and mutts. All my future Hawking is in Eastern Europe, so concentrating on Hares and larger prey, with the 'right' Bird.

 

The male is vasectomised (NOT CASTRATED), but is a good honest working Bird and is for sale for £250. The Female needs some Feathers imping on her Tail before 'entering' and is for sale for £450. Both prices are reasonable for what you will get.

Can male be seen hunting ?

I would have to start to man him and get him going again over a couple of weeks and I want to sell him while in the UK. So wouldn't be keen. Fell for that before with a Falcon and it turned out the guys just wanted to go out hunting with a Bird! I have had the Bird since 'manning' so he will need to get used to you anyway, so what he is like with me, may well be different for you, certainly for a Month or two.

thats a good price for a male

They are very good prices for both. Bloke I know paid £1200 for his

 

Unfortunately mate the price of Goshawks has dropped significantly due to the amount now getting bred.

There are still people who have untouched eyasses in their aviaries due to not getting bought.

 

Good luck with the sale. I'm nearly tempted with the female.....Hmmm.

Many thanks for the positive comments. The Female has gone, incidentally, talking about prices, her original asking price from the Breeder was £1,150, the price I asked reflected the necessary Imping and her being 'second Hand' for want of a better expression. I personally believe she would have entered the first time of asking and finished the Season at 2lb 9 or even 10oz with me. The prices are what I consider fair, which are less than I actually paid financially and in time and effort. On more than one occasion this Male has caught and held Rabbits by landing and chasing them running along the ground through Brambles, when the Rabbits have gone in. Along with other various strange scenarios showing determination, skill and gameness. I don't keep rubbish and I certainly would not sell rubbish..........No matter what Animal it is or the cost to me emotionally or financially, Curs get culled. He is well worth the asking price of £250 and the ONLY reasons he is for sale is that 1/ From long years of experience, not many respect anything for free and 2/ I wish to get a bigger type of Bird capable of taking and holding bigger Game in Eastern Europe. This Bird will take all of my time and effort. The Male Gos cannot be used for Breeding, I don't want him sat in some display somewhere or kept as somebody's Pet. I am selling him as a Hunting Bird, although he has done nothing this year so far, due to putting all my efforts into the female and I also start late down here due to Undergrowth and other Hunting interests.

 

This long winded post was prompted by someone saying I am a bit too far away.
