No, not that. Harris hawks actually form close bonds, being the only social raptor in nature. I just think it's fair to them, to be worked with and hunted with, I don't know. Hunters spend hours a day training their birds, rain or shine. I can't really describe it, but every falconer I've read about says stuff like reducing such a magnificent animal to a pet is a shame to the bird, everyone talks about their grace, it's almost mythological I guess.
I never found anyone to train me close enough to my town, that's about as far as I got. Hallyx on this forum actually hunted with them for many years, I know.
