We had a wonderful day with Mik, went fishing but also got to see the hawks and ferrets. Knowledgeable guy that could answer all our questions (and probably more!). Great fun :) Absolutely recommended!

Thank you for review and photos, it was good to meet you both, the fish was the biggest of the day and thanks for pulling the lure for Sky. I am delighted you had a good time and look forward to keeping in touch....

“Great experience!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We had a wonderfull day travelling around with Mik and his mini-van.
The fishingtrip has been the best day of our whole journey to Schotland.
If we tell other people about our journey to Schotland then the first thing we talk about
is our fishexperience. It was back to basics, being one with nature, a peacefull environment,
not a typical touristtrip and well-organised!
Something we could really recommend!

Thank you for your review. I had a good time fishing with you on the Whiteadder Reservoir. It's a pity we never got a big trout, but the small ones were good on our barbecue. Hope you keep up with the fly fishing.

All the best

“AWESOME EXPERIENCE AND NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Went out hunting for a couple of days with just the bird and one day the complete experience with the bird and the ferrets. Great to see nature as intended. Managed to have the falcon fly to me and obtained some awesome pictures a great day out that you will never forget.

Thank you for your review about falconry trip. The last rabbit Kass caught should have escaped but she held on well with one foot. I am looking forward to your next trip with us and this time you can carry the ferrets if you wish.

All the best

“Excellent Once in a life time experience”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

My daughter and I went on a falconry hunting experience with Wild Days. Mik, the owner, gave us an excellent day out. It was like being welcomed into the hidden world of stalkers and poachers. Its all legal of course. I felt like a child walking through the woods again with anticipation, being aware of the world around you in a new way, working in partnership with a bird of prey and ferrets to catch a Rabbit. Mik was great, we were part of everything straight away, holding the bird, releasing the ferrets, etc. I don't think there are many people like Mik around, who have been hunting like this since they were a child and let you come and join them. This is the real deal. Professional, humane and real. Do it. Its worth twice the price.

Thank you for your review on your Falconry experience. I had a great day out hunting with yourself and Megan. Scar and Kass behaved very well and it was good that you both got to fly them to your fist. I knew by your enthusiasm that you were having a great day, and we were all part of a successful team when Kass caught the rabbit at the end.

All the best

“Knowledgeable hunting”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I'd highly recommend a trip hunting with Kik and his lovely hawks doing what comes naturally.
The knowledge he has and love and care for the birds are first class.
