Fitted Spikes tailmount yesterday, tried to do it whilst on the fist! but he would not have any of it, so the towel came out and he got grabbed, this he did not enjoy and he had the hump for a while afterwards! such is life, its now full steam ahead he is currently 1lb 13.5oz and already screaming like a Banshee when empty but settles as soon as he is on the lure with wings tucked in and allows me to touch him all over, zero aggression so far.

Steve, the screaming is a big Con mate. Keb was pruning today and I walked up behind him he did not know I was there and he was at peace with the world. He then saw me and went into a frenzy

See it as an harmonuos war cry pmsl

Good luck with him mate. And kill, kil kill

Joe, i dont personally care really! but to the uninitiated it must appear as if i am starving him it really is pathetic at times and pointless but such are natures mechanism's, it's blowing a gale here today hopefully it will drop by late this evening for some lure re-call.

I think you will be very happy once you see him behind something mate. Kens wing beat was awsome for a maiden voyage and lack of fitness, which showed from a long lure call into the wind.

Really looking forward to hear how you get on with him mate.

Cheers Joe

hi joe,like the new aviator the other one looked as if your about to bite somebody's head off.and we all know your not like that really
By the way would you recommend the lure as a recall for a goss or the good old fist ? or are you training him to the lure incase of emergencies ie won't recall properly? cheers KEV.
