@ Eddie,

Glad you enjoyed the film. That's why I posted it.

@ Tomaz,

Crowhawking 's not that easy but I will answer your questions.

On what distance do you slip your falcon on crows?

About 120 meters from the crows in open field.

Did you ever try to slip her from a car? Do you think car hawking would be possible?

Carhawking is forbidden in Belgium and with falcon not required. I tried but it bored quickly, you see only part of the flight and the falcon will often miss because wind and terrain can not be used or recognized. You don't see how they find strategies to attack. On the bike your falcon hear the crows, feel the wind, temperature, ... And you're faster at the falcon when she catches a crow.

If you have to choose betwen male and feemale fo crow hawking what would your choice be and why?

A male is spectacular but will stop after a while. But is the best you can have. A good saker male will crash in cover but you must be quick to help him. My saker male took 17 crow, 2 chickens and a lot of pigeons... We had a lot of adventures.

Grtz Erik

After a difficult period and problems with the liver of the falcon, she finally took her crow 100.

Sorry for keeping you waiting.

After she captured her 100ste crow, I wasn't yet convinced of her condition. But than we had a flight, 100 meters up 700 meters far. From one side to another. She had no crow but hunted fine. Up and down. Chasing them al in cover. I was a happy man and slipped her 20 minutes later again on another flock. But the falcon is a female and flew to the other side. Finally she got a crow and fell just next to a garden. On the other side she had 1,8 km open space but chose this side.

Erik



And this is the other side

The last few years farming with cows has evolved greatly. More stables where the cows stay in throughout the year. The biggest difference in the field is the disappearance of the barbed wire. There are been battles fought when barbed wired was introduced, all over the World. Many falcon lost her life. But my falcons made use of it. So falcon and falconer have to adapt their strategy. This solid bars are the new indications of different properties.
