Hi there is always a debate on the forum on which is better the F/H or M/H
I was just wondering out of the FRT or the MRT which is the better Hawk or is it down to the quarry your hunting your land ect much like the Harris's.

Horses for courses, if you want to hunt bigger stuff e.g. hare i'd go for the female.

My female was briliant at hares, but we don't have lots of them so i switched to male.I was sucsesfully flying male at pheasants, and even pigeons from car window!
Depending on what are you going to fly RT!?!?

No, quite the opposite, my FRT was an absolute babe last season, even calmer than ever but was always more vocal when she saw me (not anyone else) and she laid a couple of eggs this Spring so I assume I was the intended one!!

So the answer to your question is no - until you go to ring her chicks :lol:

ive got a female red very good nature only aggressive when on quarry,i.b.r ring put on while on the fist along with new bewits and anklets without footing one,its just down to the manning and temperment of the bird
