Got in one more hunt at the crack of dawn this morning.
This is how to extend the hunting season.
She missed the quail, but bagged 4 bunnies.

That is so cool! And, look at the background on that last picture. Hunting right across the street from a Walmart (or something like that)! Try doing that with a shotgun, or even a bow.

did that once and loved it! Wish IO had the capacity to keep one!

That's GOTTA be cool to watch. I saw a 1/2 hr. show a couple weeks ago (California Gold with Huell Howser) about a falconer who had a number of falcons, etc., and they went out to Castaic for a little demo. Those birds are fast, fast FAST!!!!!!! There's obviously just a little more to it than telling the bird to "go fetch", isn't there? Sure looks neat, I admire your perseverence and patience. Cool deal........

And I thought Spiro was your dog. Awesome pics. I've watched some guys before hunting with raptors at San Jacinto. There were having trouble with golden eagles I think it was bothering their falcon? Or hawks? I didn't see it but they moved later to another spot.

Hank is my pudelpointer, Spiro is my 17 year old german shorthair, probably 3000 gambles quail retrives for him, but he is stuck to the back yard now.

Had not been able to read the upland bird page til I followed all the instructions delete cookies etc. It works now.

Also just went with a friend who has the Harris Hawk. Not mine. But waited many years to share the experiance. It was awsome. When we got out of the truck to start the hunt a police officer pulled into the field and used his camera phone to take some pics. He didn't leave til we were out of sight.

Great experiance.

how awsome is that to hunt right in the middle of the city of Lancaster without someone coming over and giving you shit about what your doing . Great pics hope to see more. What kind of bird do you hunt with?

Great team work: humans, dogs, and raptors.
And extended seasons, and I presume you could hunt in cities, near people, and places where you can&#39;t use a shotgun.

Met a couple guys near Wister on Friday night cooking up some pheasant their birds had bagged. These guys had and english pointer, a GSP, a Brittany and two falcons. They suggest they bag many rabbits, quail, and a few pheasant.

Great teamwork for sure

WOW!!..thats pretty cool!! ..I&#39;ve wanted to try that!

This is great,my hat is off to those enguaged in this sport.I lived with a redtail for a month that I found hurt.Game warden made me turn him loose a little early I felt but he seemed to be ok.This was an older bird and showed a lot of intellagence.Reasearched and found that I cannot at this time or that devote the dayly attention nessesary to even be an aprintace.One day maybe looking for a sponcer,it is in my heart.

Can you train one to take out feral cats?

I&#39;ve never seen a Harris hunted from a pole perch before. I&#39;ve only seen them flown at bolt like a Gos. Short pole perches are often used for hen goldens, males are light enough for the glove.

For a pigeon problem in the Santa Barbara area I would go talk to the falconer at the resort at Haskell&#39;s. They work the area pretty often for the property owners. There is no seagull problem there. I think he had a red-tail and a peregrine.
