Trapping Merboks

Have been hearing many stories regarding the trappings of Merboks (Zebra Doves) from trappers. It appears these birds are not as easy as it seems. Especially when one is selective of the voice that he is looking for and the intelligence of these birds then becomes apparent.
It is not uncommon for a trapper to pursue a particular bird for more than a year at a time (with little or no success to show).
Trained my pikat at Bkt Serindit today together with a few guys who has been pursuing a particular bird for months. No success again today, but the persistance of these trappers are admirable ;)
