Book Description Published by the author. Wilcox, Arizona. 2009 1st edition. 4to (220 x 283mm). Ppxiv,354. Colour photographs throughout, colour painting, b/w illustrations, bibliography. Pictorial laminated boards, issued without a dust-wrapper. Fine new copy. Errata slip laid in. "This book is a continuation of the Desert Hawking series, and it could be viewed as a culmination of my hawking techniques. From the beginning of my falconry career, I have favored the direct pursuit hawks such as the accipiters, Harris and Aplomado. Because of my senior status and the length of our flights, I hunt with four good legs under me. My preference is the Peruvian Paso. Desert Hawking IV: Quail begins with a focus on the Harris at quail and then moves on to hawking this game bird with the Aplomado. There are 327 illustrations including color photos, drawings, and works of art. It is slightly shorter than its predecessor with 368 pages. The book closes with a chapter written by my friends hunting other prey with the aplomado, but the reader is forewarned that this work is narrowly focused on hawking desert quail. During the 60 years that I have flown hawks, my ambition has been to simplify the process. My hawks are free lofted and flown in the free flightsystem. I developed the 22 hour weight control system and have used it withall hawks. My system is centered around adjusting taming and training to the individual, and I adapt various techniques used by falconers to obtain maximum performance. My charges are maintained on a whole bird small, mammal ration, and they are kept at flight weight the entire season. Their weight is controlled during the molt to maintain training." In two sections; Harris hawks and Aplomado falcons. . Seller Inventory # 25751
