    Default Greetings from Bayou Land

    Back in the saddle again. Unfortunately, I lost my first bird due to an untreatable eye infection. I took a year learning more about avian health and diseases. Trapped 1200g female this past weekend. Can't wait to get back into the field. I hated to lose that first (or any) bird. However, I firmly believe that it has caused me to become a more knowledgeable Apprentice and a better falconer.

    Lew, have you been hunting lately. I've been out a couple times last week with my newest Female Redtail, Raker. She slipped on two rabbits but they were just too quick and cover too close.

    No I haven’t. My bird had a rabbit by the back end and the dog went in to help and got grabbed in the face by one foot. She pulled loose, with both eyes thankfully, but I’ve been nursing a bird with a bad leg for a few weeks. Be back in the saddle next week. Shame too, because the first 2 weeks of hunting she was on fire. Keep putting your bird on game, she’ll figure it out. Some take awhile to develop some technique, especially down here where they rarely get easy slips

    I'll keep on keeping on. Sooner or later she'll tag something.
