These jerks almost never land, I've found more way high than anywhere near the ground. I got sick of waiting and chased one around for an hour with a quetz and was able to bola it out of the sky from high up. I wasted over 50 in the attempt but it is possible to bola that high and have it not die. The one I knocked down was a 76,i can't say for sure if lower levels won't die in the attempt. Alternatively you may also try carrying a partner on a pteranadon or tapejara and having them bola it as with either of those you are more likely to be able to keep up.
