    This is merely a question not a criticism in any way. That looks like Red Cedar that you have in there with him. Does Red Cedar, a Juniper, have the same anti-fungal properties as conifers with...

    I personally feel that it is innate to mantle when the bird feels that its food is threaten, guess I should clarify that. Not a strong opinion, I could probably be swayed other way after reading...

    I agree with you here Jeff. I consider myself "in the know" on this topic. Notice how a few were jumped all over and then no one else weighed in.

    Does the bird come instantly to the lure? If so then you may have a better idea of whether it is a weight issue, or a glove issue or something else that you pick up on by doing something different. ...

    There was a vote a few years ago to change the bylaws to vote for president of nafa. It failed by less than ten votes and had a VERY poor turnout of members voting if I remember correctly.
