 Avoiding Being Caught up High

High ringing flights are hugely enjoyable, but being caught all the way up there isn’t always that much fun. In suitable terrain, high altitude binds can be great, and can give a falcon a reward for good climbs, but being caught up high in unsuitable terrain can allow the falcon to land somewhere unsuitable. She will likely descend with the wind, turning into the wind as she reaches tree height.

To avoid an unintentional catch, it’s a good idea not to fly straight over your own head. This makes judging the height difference between the falcon and the Rocrow very difficult. Instead try to keep the flight a distance in front of you. This makes it easier to judge the horizontal difference between the falcon and the Rocrow.
