This is one way to bring down a deer. I don't think I've seen footage of an ealge taking big prey before. I think it's a Golden Eagle (please correct me if I'm wrong), so you may want to think twice about taking your dog out to stalk with you on the hill!

You would get through quite a few birds of prey hunting like that! A friend of mine put a Saker Falcon on to a hare. The hare died but not before he bust the falcons wings.
I think I will stick to rifles, easier to feed and won't crap on your wrist. :D

The title says Golden Eagle and it looks pretty much like one but it would have to be quite a small roe.

Yes it is a golden eagle. it is also a very small deer.

when i was a lad my dad was a keen falconner he used to fly a goshawk that wieghed about 2lb 9oz at big lincolnshire hares. That was very good.

Sakers, to be fair, are generally flown at birds in this country.
