Hunting with the Bird

hunting-279x174During hunting the safety of the bird and preventing unnecessary suffering of the prey have the highest priority. The falconer must pay attention to all the dangers that may occur in the hunting ground, for example traffic, ignorant and uninformed people, wild, feral or pet predators or other human or environmental risks.

The size of the hawk and the size of the quarry have to match one-another.

Captured quarry, if not already killed by the bird, has to be killed by the falconer as soon as possible in the most humane way.
