Default 2017 Goshawk

Well after the very unfortunate escape, the gutting death & after months of strong mixed emotions & feelings in regards to the Tiercel I acquired a few months back (I'm sure some will vouch!). I decided, with the help of close friends & my misses lol, I have made the choice to man the f**k up & not be beaten! I am collecting a 2017 a Pr Tierel on the 19th of August. He is a 3/4 Fin/alb bred by Paul Cannadine. & Ian Trotter. My aim is to simply to enjoy him & do my upmost best to make a decent bird of him! I have changed my job purely so I can fly him to our maximum capability! My hours are now 3:30pm-8:30pm, ideal for an Austringer lol. I will fly him 6 days per week no matter what. My plan is to make him to a hood & I intend on doing this by using small eyes holes, as is practiced in Pakistan. I hope to make a good all around bird of him although I hope & will try to push him on the Corvid front. I will be honest & not lie, I am slightly nervous after 3yrs out the game & never doing a a Pr Goshawk before I naturally expect the worse lol! I'm sure I'll be fine & cannot wait to be honest. After years or poxy luck I will not be beaten & let it get to me.
It's good to be back & I'm so excited on his collection & arrival.

Good luck Alex, I think you will find the parent reared Gos quite straight forward as they are far less complex than the Imprint, just relax and enjoy. Steve.

I looked in to the palm nest (Pakistani hood taming) I don't think it is a way of making the bird to the hood , just a tool for manning it , the bird has the hood put in strait away and then every 3rd day the a hole is cut in the hood allowing the bird more vision , the bird is fed on the fist with the hood still on , step ups, jumps, small flights , all with the hood on , the hood only comes off 7 times in the total off 3 weeks ,,, I'm not sure if this would be enough to make the bird to the hood,,, I'm not sure tho so maybe if there is someone on here who as tried it they could let us no ,,, atb navek
