That was fuckin awesome. Osprey's are a bad ass raptor. I have to thank you for taking care of the bird correctly. A lot of dudes wouldn't have the balls to even get close.
.... a slide swimmer might be worth it though! haha
I have seen Osprey's hit the punkers a time or two. They can do some damage to the wood punker. Any damage to the bait?
Yeah, I tried to de as gentle as possible and shake it loose before it got hooked. Unfortunately it did, so I had to do some impromptu surgery! Super cool bird up close, and I really feel that he knew I was trying to help and stayed pretty calm during the whole thing!!!Very respectful way you handled that bird. My hats off to you, TRUE sportsman.
Thanks for reppin the sport well.
