Welcome to the Pack, Little One

OK, there’s a new critter underfoot here. Follow the link for a “cute” overdose.

But there is some method here… we’re looking for a canine substitute for a weasel or ferret, to pop down rabbit holes and flush the rabbits out where the hawks can have a chance at them. This one should be about ready to hunt come fall. So far, the hawks seem to have no problem recognizing that the new pack member is not a rabbit itself.

    Wesley a couple things. I am completely ignorant on how hunting with raptors works. If you were using a weasel or ferret to flush out rabbits, what do you do to train the bird not to just go after the weasel or ferret?

    Did you see the documentary, A boy and his Eagle?
