Falconry is a very tricky art which I am still working at,but once mastered it is most enjoyable.
A harris hawk is probably the easiest to start with but looking after raptors is not easy.
I am still training this harris hawk at the moment and he should be able to fly free on the weekend.
The way I got into falconry is by drawing them at first,then getting more involved in hunting raptors then I went on a management course and after all these years I have finally got stuck in
There is also a falconry forum to join which is very good to get your knowledge builded up: www.falconryforum.co.uk
There are different styles of falconry and you can do it from horse back
But this requires 1 hand on the horse controlling it whilst the other is having the hawk/falcon/eagle standing on it.
