Snow Goose Success

Saturday evening, when it was almost too dark to be flying, Cooper and I went along with Stephen to try and fly his birds on a duck pond not too far from our house. We parked just out of sight of the pond and I didn't see the flight as it happened, but he was sure a happy hunter when he came back and whipped a snow goose out of his falconry bag! This is the first goose he's ever killed/ hunted! I guess it took his peregrine two tries to get it down, and it showed! There was a huge gash across it's stomach and it's head area. Flights like this are what make him love it, as you can tell from the picture! Then again, I think he'd love it even without the successful flights... :)
