View Full Version : Hi, new falconer from Taiwan

Hi everyone,

I'm a new falconer originally from California, but moved to Taiwan for work many years ago.

Currently I fly a Harris hawk, and loving every minute of it. I'm joining the forum because I want to learn more and be part of as many communities related to this sport as possible.

Thanks for having me!

Hi David,

Welcome to Nafex. What quarry are you hunting with your Harris? Are there other falconers in Taiwan?

There are a bunch of falconers actually; surprised how many. Mostly we go after pigeon and rabbit so far. I will see what else as the season progresses. Taiwan doesn't seem to have much wild game so far. I know most falconers here do it for show (not sure this is the right word, but they just fly the bird to glove and lure). Though this could be just my impression as a foreigner. There are groups that hunt a lot, but they are more private and less public about it.
