This morning Tulsa was right on weight so we went out to give it another try with my apprentice Daniel in tow. Again my falcon was climbing well and for the first time shifted his mount over the pond instead of over me. At 700' or so we flushed a group of Gadwalls off the pond and the bird quickly put one on the ground. As he pulled up for the wing over the duck made a break for it and was knocked down again but not out and it slipped the final three feet to safety of the water.
I gave the falcon a full crop of warm duck and off to
home to finish packing to head to Woodward tomorrow.
