wooo..now that is some serious sharp shooting . Cool shots!! You know what I had a Red Tail for a while as a " pet" if a wild raptor can be such.

I was out with my friends in high school hunting pheasant when one of the guys spotted a Red Tail circling high above. One of the guys bet another in our group he could not hit it. He of course, in spite of objections from mio , met the challenge let drive ..I was amazed given the hieght ...but down came the Red Tail. I took it home. ..It only had one pellet through a wing muscle so I bound up the wing ..and put the hawk in a cage outside .

I had two early morning paper routes where I was able to collect road kill. I fed the hawk for 4 weeks and after some test flying over a number of days -making sure it could fly...it was let go. It was cool. I had a chance do similar things three Snowy Owls ..on three successive years . They were simply starving and I was able to bring them back to strength and release them.
all the best
