November 6, 2008

Nov 3 2008 Widow 9 lbs 10oz After flying Widow all summer and up into the coming winter she still has not taken anything wild. I don’t think that this is all bad; she caught many wild jacks in California […]

September 17, 2008 This past week Cordi and I have been filming Widow taking bagged pheasants in mid-air. Widow has given us some spectacular flights. Like today’s flight — she was at roughly 1500 feet when I served her. She […]

September 18, 2008

September 11, 2008     Our weather has just the hint of fall in it. The mornings are cool and the daytime temps are not going over the mid 70’s. The last few flights with Widow have not gone well. […]

August 30, 2008 The wind was predicted to blow today so I was eager to get up on the mountain before it blew too much. Widow can fly in big wind but high wind will change how you can hunt […]

August 28 2008 Widow Temp 52’ Wind 1-2mph My theory of why Widow has been reluctant or unwilling to fly is holding true. Her new feathers are almost all the way out and, not surprising, she is back flying once […]

August 17, 2008 The last two times out Widow has not flown very well. I went up into the mountains last week and flew her in a valley that I have found jacks in before and all she did was […]

September 18, 2008

August 12, 2008 After Widow having had a week off I was, and I don’t know why, worried that she would have forgotten everything. She didn’t, but I always do that; we go away for a few days and I […]

August 2, 2008 With a bagged pheasant in the truck and both dogs, Maggie and Thistle, and Widow of course, I drove out into the BLM. I have found a place that is down from where I have been flying […]

September 1, 2008

July 31, 2008 My plan was to go up to an area where I have found jack rabbits as well as sage grouse, so the location will remain a secret. It is a beautiful place with lots of wildlife. Someday […]
