Obviously you don't have a mentor. You can't man a bird properly at fat weight. Why would you want to man it and drop it's weight at this time of year? The bird should be freelofted if possible in a seclusion/ quiet pen where it can moult in piece. The cover and leaves are high and all quarry species are breeding, there is no point in flying it at this time of the year unless you are carrying out bird control.

Seems simple enough question .Why dosnt someone take the time to answer it .Dosnt mean he’s going out tomorrow just getting prepared .

Giving advice over the internet isn't really a good idea regarding BOP and especially with regard to weight management.

The person advising can't see the bird in question or feel its keel to see if it's fat or thin. Too much weight loss and the bird may well go low and possibly die.

Trying to man a hawk that is too fat can sometimes cause the bird to hate the person and can result in aggression.

The ideal solution for a beginner is to get someone who knows what they are doing locally, and who can give advice and tips on training/manning the hawk with a hands on approach.

Unfortunately it's the hawk that will suffer if the beginner gets it wrong.

Just my opinion.
