    One of the guys I hawk with has a Falcongreen bred HWV - nice dog, good looking, strong and bold.

    You would be better off asking the question on a Falconry forum or gundog forum.

    I went to see Jim couple of years back when I was after a pup. His bitch didn't come into season so the litter never came till much later in the year by which time I had my name on another litter.
    I can't vouch for him or his dogs any more than the little I've seen and read.
    He is with out doubt well into his birds and whv.
    Iram, his main sire has top lines and is proven in many working tests (mostly in Hungary.)
    I have met two pups out of Iram and different bitchs of Jims and both as Mike said, strong, bold and cracking looking dogs.

    I thought the same as you when trying to check him out. He keeps himself to himself.
    Go meet him and or talk to whva and then see what you think.

    Not sure if that helps or not but there you go.

    Thanks for the advice all.
    I have been and met Jim and the dogs and their lines were impresssive. Top-notch from what I could establish.
    They were clearly being used for their traditional roles too, which was also of confidence.

    As has been pointed out Jim keeps himself to himself, and focuses on his dogs and work, which liked.
    So to get a second opinion from others, and guys who have seen is dogs 'in action' is really reassuring.

    Cheers
