Default Re: Rogue 2016 female Harris hawk

Well today was very interesting to say the least Rogue was in her middle of her weight window at 33.5oz and started off great following on like a typical outing. When a semi pulled directly under her and parked and hit the air breaks and off she went. She flew off 200 yards then as I approached off she would go finally after I'd guess 1000yrds total she turned and came straight back to the lure.
I called her up to glove walked back to the car loaded her up to drove to another location got her out she went right back to her normal self.
Me and John Haugh started working the thicker cover wasn't long John bumped one Rogue came over indicating that it was still in the cover we both started moving towards it busted out Rogue came in like a fighter jet low to the ground and just simply walked it down.

I have no doubt if I had hare here she would kill them without a problem. She shows great interest in Canadian geese. She will actually growl in displeasure if I don't slip her on them lol.my bucket list is to go out west and fly Jack rabbit

It's been a about a week since I've been able to get out and fly Rogue but today I decided to give it a go even with 19 mph winds so I met up with a buddy and headed out we were in field two minutes got two quick flights thick cover saved them from meeting their fate. We moved across the street to where the first two bunnies made their escape.we spotted a power tower in the open with a bean field next to it good cover under it rogue flew up to middle of it. Before my buddy could properly work it a bunnie came out up wind running fast rogue flew out down making it freeze she went on by it landed in tree andnd quickly slammed it.
