Hey all,
Have been out for a couple of hunts with my mate and his pack of vicious killers and here is the footage!
Cheers,
Watty.

I loved that , I have ferrets and hunt with nets , I just love how fast the reactions of the hawk is !
Broadband speed !!
Am interested in how the hawk reacts with the ferrets? , what stops him swooping down and nailing them ?

Great vidio

The hawks are trained to work with ferrets, and as the hawk doesn't associate it as food will not nail it.
The hawk soon learns that the ferret will flush a rabbit which will bolt from the warren for the hawk to take, and as the ferret will emerge from the warren at a much slower speed mistakes by the hawk are unlikely to happen.

Very good that. I could get into that myself. Impressive bird is the Harris Hawk.
