Default Apprenticeship

I know I will get trashed for this, critisized, etc, but gonna do it anyways. I'm not in the UK plz remember that, I'm in Ontario Canada. Just setting the playing feild here.

When I decide to accept someone for an apprenticeship, I interview them over coffee for a couple of days, then decide if we will go further.

I require the person to bushbeat for me for a season, see what I do for overall maintance, this allows them to gain exp, with all aspects, of hunting/training birds in falconry , almost, and it also allows me to assess their commitment to a bird, and sport.

The next season, they must find there own hunting feilds in which combined they can flush a min of six bunnies per day. A day is an outing and varries per terrain.

The next season I bushbeat for them, this is where it all comes together, after this its breeding, trapping, etc.

In my opinion a gamehawker ie falconer, who can not find or flush a minimal amout of game for their bird, should look harder, look at diff game or choose another hobby. My 2cents.

Dave has a point, but your method would be a good path to use.

By the way, I don't sit down to pesh and I hover for No2's so your glues wasted.
