Hey Doug,

Is that the jesses dangling from your bird's ankles?

The previous post is really neat too! your dog is really getting the hang of it!

Best regards,
Catching Rats, Human Rats!

Yes those are jesses. There are two schools of thought when it comes to hunting with jesses. I belong to the camp that lets their bird wear them as long as they are designed for hunting. Most of the folks I have hunted with belong tot he same camp.

There are others that would never let their bird fly with jesses. it is just not done. I understand and appreciate the reasoning behind this decision. Different strokes and all that.

Gordon is getting there. I need to get him facing off against larger quarry in there. It'll happen soon.
