    Hi Jim...Thanks for your help as well before I made it down there...If you google south padre peregrine trapping I believe you should be able to get pics of peregrines with the survey crew holding pics of birds they caught and a couple showing the harnesses they are using.
    Mine are different then theirs, but catch birds also..I make my nooses a little smaller and they have there nooses a bit bigger, about the size of a quarter.
    Peregrines are quite sticky footed anyway and get caught easy compare to some other falcons.
    I use 17- 25 lb test limp, but with your warmer/hot weather limp line may not be a issue like it is with our cooler temps..I'd also make a carpet of about 20 x 20 inches that you can put over the pigeon in case it is not caught when you think it was and pumped it.
    Chris Godfrey makes a great harness and perhaps he will be of help to you also..Thanks and let me know how you make out..Thanks...Hub..You'll have a great time...Wish I were there just to hang out...
  2. Howdy all. Name is Jim Guy from Austin TX. Patiently waiing for the heat to subside so I can get 6 yr Peregrine back in the air. Also fly 5 yr old passage HH at sparrows and anything else that moves. Been laid up since June ecovering from foot surgery but starting to hobble around again. Should be good as "new" by hawking season.
