Falconry, Large-Scale

, , ,

Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) attempting to detain roe deer (Capreolus capreolus).

Falconer Steve Bodio has traveled to Kazakhstan in order to witness Central Asian falconers using Golden Eagles to take deer.

Next time, Steve won’t have to travel so far. The Daily Mail recently reported on hunting with Golden Eagles in Slovakia.

Impressive– people don’t realize a good eagle can take a roe like a Gos takes a hare (and for those that ask, that was NOT a bagged deer– the numbers in the rapeseed fields exceed those of rabbits), I will send more pix.


Now I love to see a hawk flying down on a rabbit but watching this must be a sight you will never ever forget!
