My name is nick lane, I'm just starting out and am looking to make contact and connections with people who have experience, and are hopefully near me. So far I have really struggled finding anyone even close to me. I'm in Chesapeake, and I don't mind driving a few hours. Please if you are near me, or now if anyone near me, please let me know.

I'm in Kitty Hawk . Not too far. I hunt most weekends but rarely get up that way. let me know if you want to get together and we can go slay a few squirrels in Currituck somewhere.

That would be awesome. If you could PM me your info, I would love that. I am more than willing to drive that far, or even to kitty hawk if need be. I'm about 1hour and 15min away from you

Hello Nick, good luck in you search. You may want to look up the Virginia Falconers Association. I am sure they can help you locate someone in your area. Take care and I HOPE it works out.

Thank you. I did look them up, but they weren't much help. They don't have any memebers in my area. But I've been able to find a few people that are close enough by searching all over the interwebs. It was a rough start at first, but a lot of people are really helpful in this sport

We are in VA and just trying to get started too - it seems like folks are pretty spread out here. Everyone we've met in state has been through VA Falconers. Good luck and I'll keep an ear open for you.

Hang in there Nick, This is how it all started for most of us. Keep with it and you will find someone.

Keep us posted on your progress

Hi Nick. Best bet would be to attemd a VFA meet so you can introduce yourself and meet some people face to face. 3rd weekend in January Harrisonburg. 3rd weekend in Febuary Winchester. Info should be posted soon.
