I know people lamp with the birds, however i can't see the point personaly. harris' hawks make catching rabbits durring the day a tad borring, i used to like going with the dog, especialy when times were tight, my last dog salukixwhipet would take 30 rabbits on her own retrieved to hand, a pound each to the butcher and there's the dogs food and a few pints payed for, as i said hang in there i'm shure someone will crop up.

P.s i did concider lamping when i changed jobs just to keep the bird going but never did, resorting to throwing and dragging lures after work and hunting when i could.
