Default Bewits or Tail Mount????

Had a lengthy discussion about this at the weekend and my mind has been made up but my decision I'm keeping to my self for now

What I want to know is what most other practicing falconers prefer as the method of choice for fitting bells to their hawks

Bewits or a tail mount

Answers on a post card peeps

Always use tailmount, have not had any problems yet (touch wood). Mainly as I feel that they have enough on their legs already

Bells on the legs with button bewits. Nothing on the tail.
