I will try and get a pic for you, mine doesn't hang over the anklet, if the tie is tied tight enough it hangs outwards

The traditional leather bewit system with two cable tie heads together as the final fixing seems to work best for me. Have been using cable tie inside plastic tube more recently, my thinking is that this system will be more robust.

Thumbs up Re: Bells 'n' Bewits

I must admit I prefer to use tail mounted bells (and telemetry) to minimise the clutter around the legs especially for hard striking birds. I just worry about possible bruising that can occur from a bell on one leg clanking against the other leg when striking or grabbing the quarry.

All the best

Mark.

I agree, the best place for a bell is the tail, but my tiercel seems to a problem with them. In his first year he threw the deck out it was fitted too, he's in his fourth season now and has been wearing leg bells since then.

I agree the tail is the best place for the bell ,best advantage is it does`nt get muffled in long grass however my male harris pulls his deck feathers out if i mount a bell there so have to use a leg mount ie hole punched in anklet and bell secured with small cable tie.
