Well my redtail had a toe amputated and was out of commision for 3 weeks. Now I have him back and took him out yesterday after church and he didnt forget a thing. 2 minutes into it he was chasing a squirrel up and down a tree for 30 minutes before the squirrel made a mistake and my bird got him. I wasnt expecting him to get something more just to get him back in the woods. And I dont have any pics since I hadnt planned on a kill. Landon

Kenbob, BTW? Not sure where that is but I was at Harrison Bay state park in Hamilton CO.
Catch were the guys you watched in Cleveland? There are a few up there that use dogs.

Also as for anyone wanting to get into falconry.... Take your time and go out with someone before seriously thinking about it. It is the most regulated sport of hunting and you have to have a state and federal permit as well as getting equipment inspected. But if you would like you can PM me, if you want to tag along and I will give you as much info as I can. Of course there is stuff I cant explain to non licensed individuals.

Love the reports. Growing up "My Side of the Mountain" was one of my favorite books.

Post more pictures.

Have you gotten any game besides squirrels?


Are turkeys legal game?

Sorry to hear the squirrel bite got that bad, but glad to hear he is ok now.
Been wondering where your posts have been, never thought he had been out of commision.

Yea ruger he had a nice vacation, but it was nuts for me because it seemed like a year haha.

Have gotten a few rabbit with my previous bird but only squirrels with this one. And you only hunt small game and waterfowl with them. But I have seen a redtail take a squirrel on a group hunt one time by accident

Newhunter, Booker T. Washington State Park. It's about 5 miles from Harrison Bay. My son's a ranger down there and he said a dude was there the other day with his hawk. He said the crows were giving it a fit that day.
