Howdy! I am A. Hurley; a 13 year old lady apprentice falconer from East Texas. My father is Sader762, and this is our first year.

I got into falconry because my sponsor brought his PFRT, Rodeo, to the fall festival in our church. I saw him and his bird and instantly knew I wanted to do the same. It took some convincing and research, but my parents gave me the go-ahead. My father decided to do falconry with me because he didn't want me doing this by myself.

I currently am working with my sponsor's old redtail for my first year, since I have to be sixteen to become a general falconer in Texas, and it's been lots of fun so far. I hope to get to meet you in the forums, and wish you a Happy New Year! :)
