We hunt pheasants, rabbits, hare (if we are lucky), ducks. Where ducks are concerned, La Belle (a French goshawk) always traps the duck in the water, and returns to the bank by flapping her wings, with the duck. We don't hunt with the males now because they are in reproduction.

Frantz says (I am translating for him) that before he hunted with a harris couple together ... one flying one on the glove. Turned out to be great hunting strategy because the male learnt to help the female to trap hare by diverting it in her direction. The female was trained to hunt rabbits and hare, the male the pheasants and ducks. This couple is in reproduction now too and are experienced and excellent parents.
