The Flite-Gard System was devised to solve a recurring problem at game bird hunting resorts. When rain occurs on a day that a hunt is scheduled, the grass and bushes become wet. The birds also become wet and cannot fly. Several factors contribute to this problem. First, the birds’ feathers mat together when wet, and the lift provided by the wing feathers is reduced. Secondly, the wet birds become heavy, thereby making it more difficult to obtain flying speed and altitude. Therefore, when the birds are flushed, they attempt to fly but cannot, and the hunt is spoiled.
