what's the estimate of time to do something like this? starting off the first week, more hours put in than later on?
The first week, the more time you spend with the hawk, the better. I work, so I probably spend 3-4 hours every night that first week taming the hawk and getting him to eat. Week two, is similar, but more working on flying. After he's "trained" it's the same thing - the more time you fly, the better.
With a redtail, you can get away with only flying maybe 3 days a week, an hour each time, but it's not ideal. I hunt 4-6 days a week, weather permitting.
There are ups and downs. Today was a dud, for example.
ur not exactly Oscar calibre yet for editing/sound/film, but we'll cut you some slack!
It's taking some practice. Having the camera mounted to my head means every time I look at something, the view gets jerked around. I'm usually more focused on hunting than filming. And I knew most people wouldn't like my music selection.
