FALCONRY

FALCONRY

Falconry is the ancient art of training birds of prey to successfully hunt and capture game. I was fortunate enough to become a falconer at the age of sixteen with my uncle, a master falconer for nearly fifty years, in the state of Montana. My uncle maintained an arsenal of raptors capable of taking many species of ducks, grouse, partridge, pheasant, and rabbit. He bread peregrine and Arctic gyr falcons, some of the most highly prized species of falcons in the world. I’ve been part of some of the greatest hunts of gyr falcons, peregrine falcons, gyr peregrine hybrids, golden eagles, gos hawks, Harris hawks coopers hawks, merlins, and other raptors. He also ran a program called Wing of Freedom. Injured raptors were brought to him by the Fish and Game to be nursed back to health until they are ready to be released back to the wild.
