If the Mongolians can do it, why can't anyone?

Because it would be illegal to hold an eagle in captivity I bet. No other reason neccessary.

Otherwise, this would be a great renewable resource that requires only the right husbandry, training and relationship to potentially maintain a convocation of eagles for generations.

No ammunition other than feeding and care.
No smelting, machining, milling;
No shaping, assembly, aiming, required.

Just some tanning and stitching for tethers and gloves. A process that requires easily found materials all around you in nature.

An amazing piece of film none-the-less.

Looking after and training birds of prey is no easy task.Father inlaw has kept and hunted with them for over 40 years and in the 15 years i have known him i have seen how hard it is.

Regards to all

I'd sooner hunt a bald eagle in the US.
I don't hunt any dog or dog type animal.
I hear eagle tastes like chicken.

And I love birds.

I walked through a fenced yard with the owner and his 4 wolves one night.
He told me stay close tohom and keep my fingers up.
When entering the yard, the 4 wolvres put their snouts to my legs and I dropped my car keys.

Needless to say, I had the owner retrieve them later.

Those beasts are scary up close with those wide shoulders and wild intent.
Hope yours never turns on you or anyone.

Good burgler deterent.

Because the mongolians you speak of have been doing this for generations, have mastered it, and are predisposed to practice it as a way of life. Basically its a necessity for them. Whereas us city people, do not feel the pressure of having to survive in the wild with limited resources. Simply doing it for the heck of doing it is not enough, add that to the fact that you'd be learning all of this from the beginning, so I'd give you and your kids oh...around a couple of hundred years before you can do what they do
Since well, Mongolians have been at this stuff since prehistoric times o.0

Or, we would know in about 4 years when the eagle debuts it's hunting skills.
It may have taken generations to master, but emulating the knowledge would simply take dedication and 4 years training.
