Andy Cunningham did well with this cross he had a few,as for being pointless they hunt and kill as well as a Harris or Red,definition of pointless is a bird sat in aviary doing nothing because owner can't be bothered or no quarry to fly at (not a dig at anybody)

I'm in no way starting a argument or defending anyone. But I believe what was meant by useless is that there was nothing gained but this hybrid.i don't have nothing against hybrids and I understand the reasoning by trying to cross the red with hh. Which is trying to get the speed of the HH with the feet thickness of the red along with the cold tolerance of the red. But as far as gaining a better hunting hawk I don't see it. As far as not being a great bird I'd bet it's a fine hunting hawk. And be fun to fly
