A few shots from the picnic yesterday. We had a great turnout { 31 people attended} for the small club that we are. Everyone walked away with something from our raffle and the club raised $605.

Hate I missed it, it looks like you had a great time! Thank you for taking the time to post photos Jim

Chris, it appeared that everyone at the picnic had a good time. I drove up on Friday morning so I could fly the new immature female HH with a couple other HH's for the first time. She did really well chasing birds, 1 cottontail and 2 jacks. It was pretty hot weather{96} up in Albuquerque.

Jim Had a blast hawking with you and glad u made it for the Picnic. Siing is finally chasing this morning!!! I am sure we will catch something soon.

Good to hear Mike. I am getting things ready for the trip back to Pennsylvania, but, still flying the female HH every day. Still not seeing any game, so, started popping pigeons for her to chase.

Two questions Jim.

Can you identify some of the characters?

And can I buy a raffle ticket:)

Best wishes,

My name is Joe. I'm a Master Class falconer from PA. I'm working in the Bloomfield/Farmington/Aztec, NM area for the next two weeks. I would love to tag along on a hunt with a local falconer while I'm out here. If anyone is interested in having some company on a hunt please call me. 570-205-4063
Thank You,

jag, I'll make sure that atc falconry gets this message. He is in the Albuquerque area and still flying his Harris Hawk. I don't know anyone else in the Farmington area. I am way too far south to help you out.

There are a couple up here in Farmington. Getting as scarce as the rabbits though.

Thanks Guys, I look forward to tagging along.

John and his son Richard in Farmington are great hosts. If you make it out to Albuquerque I would be more than happy to have you along.
