Oh right, how long does he plan to have Judge flying for? I'll have to be looking forward to seeing two Harris's in the photos with Judge now then. Keep us updated on how things go with the Harris Hawks and Ivan, I always love reading your latest adventures with them.

Regards

The plan is to fly Judge and the new male through to maybe the end of March weather and baby rabbits may just change things but thats the plan.

I'd imagine the new male Harris will be flying free in about 2 weeks.

I will be flying both Bob and a new p/r male going to fly one solely on feather and the other on feather and fur. Much will depend on how Bobs moults goes his last was a very poor moult but so far hes still dropping feathers nicely.

Had a lovely day out in some lovely winter weather, barely a breath of wind, bright and crisp. The ferrets produced loads of flights from good sporting slips 15 to 20m minimum. For some reason Ivan was making a real mess of footing the rabbits and the first 5 manage to kick him off, then number 6 both feet on the head and the rabbit still dragged him nearly 50m but finally stopped.

The next few flights were very short hole hoppers, then finally 1 made a break to the next warren and was stopped after a fairly long chase along a rabbit fence. So enough was enough for the day.

1lb 12 3/4oz, Im thinking he may be still a bit to high but will soldier on and see how it goes.

Ivan has now gone back home to be hunted for a few more weeks, been great fun flying him.

He ended up with a dozen or so rabbits, a couple of moorhens and another feathered kill.

I'm sure he was a pleasure to fly Alex, it was great to receive your updates on him. I saw your post on the other thread with the two Harris's, sounds like a good plan. I just hope that they both work together well when hunting and the young Male gets settled with the Ferrets.

Regards

Bradley
