Since I was kid, hunting in my dad’s fields during deer season, I was always fascinated watching the Harriers and Kestrels go cruising through looking for mice. Over the years, I had worked to get myself closer to nature by hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and even wildlife photography. However, as soon as I learned about falconry, I was instantly hooked. To me, falconry is one of the closest ways we can get to nature. It is also the best ways possible to see what these animals are truly capable of, all while maintaining a strong hunting partnership. This sport bridges a huge gap between man and the wild while teaching you something that we have lost through the years, a respect for nature.
