Default GERMAN GOSHAWKS

This forum is getting very quiet.
So I thought I'd put a few pics of my German Gos up.
He flies at around 1lb 5 give or take and he is Parent reared.
He is a fun hawk to fly especially at corvids.
He takes LBJs up to hen pheasant. He has caught cock birds but didn't manage to hold them.
He doesn't bother with rabbit anymore which doesn't bother me too much as flights at feather are more entertaining to me.

If anyone has pics of their German/Hungarian/Czech I would like to see them.

Cheers

Cracking bird my friend,your right seems a bit dead of late.
I think male gos at feather especially rook/crow is up there for quality of flights.

I've been looking for a breeder of small grosses for a long time. I want a small male. The smaller the better.
Anyone....?

Matt, right now they are as rare as hen's teeth in the UK.

I have looked back at some of the old archived threads on here and there were quite a few breeders producing this type of hawk, but unfortunately no one seems to be breeding them now.
I must admit if someone decent had a good female and wanted to breed some, I would consider putting my male in a project as I would love a small female.

We do German x Finnish males fly around 1lb5.5 - 1lb7 . I think Andy Stratford does pure German and so does Roy lupton

Hi Matt

I'm just curious.
Could I ask what is your reasoning for getting so small a gos?
Is it the quarry base you will be flying?
