Training a kit last week they were going very well when the biggest buzzard and the quickest ive ever seen took one just when I was about to get them down so that leaves me with 2 cock birds and 2 hens so I'll just keep going and see what happens with these 4 wish me luck think im going to need it.


Hi Dennis, yes, it sounds like you are trying hard. Not much you can do when a big "buzzard" comes along. Honestly, I never saw the big birds around here that we call buzzards showing any interest in catching other birds. Here they are just mainly soaring around looking for carrion. Perhaps the bird you are referring to is of a different type. Well, I'm really hoping that you get some birds going and that the hawks leave you alone. I appreciate hearing from you here on

Your probably right pat may be we should start a new fly from dusk till dawn . Bit hard to referee though might be interesting.i'll keep going may be it will all come together one day . And the hawks will leave me alone.
