    I would love to do that. We have a Raptor sanctuary by my house and they have some beautiful birds. How would you get into this? I would LOVE to do that

    Hi guys,
    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.

    Wow, that is SO cool!
    I've always been a huge fan of birds of prey, the Red-Tailed Hawk being my favourite.
    Such beautiful and majestic creatures!
    I've never done but boy, would I love to try!
    Would you and your hawk (did you name him?) care to come to Canada?
    You can ride my Arabians in trade for flying. ;)

    Wow! I love hawks too. I remember when I was young my uncle use to have this huge big eagle. Unfortunately it died soon, and instead of bury the eagle my uncle got it stuffed and gave it to me as a present.

    I'd like to learn this new art too. I have checked the forum and got myself registered . Now got to find the nearest school in Gloucester to learn some tricks

    Thanks for sharing this

    Regards
