Hold your hand in front of your bird while getting him to step up after a few time move a cm away do it a few times and keep doing that while repeating the cue you want or do the same technique with a target stick slowly move back more and more eventually you'll get it if you don't understand me just search youtube

practice practice practice makes perfect - even smart birdies like senegals need a review session every now and then. so maybe try reviewing the skill of targeting from the beginning, from scratch, and practice that exclusively for a few days. and then move on to the next thing you want to do, i.e. flight recall w/ target stick.

good luck :senegal: :)
