    General Rules

    North American Falconers Exchange-Falconry Forum

    ************* DO NOT SKIP OVER THIS SECTION***********

    Please read these rules and understand them. If they are not followed you will be asked to agree to them again. After your second offense your account will be disabled for 7 days. If you vilolate them again, you will be permanetly banned and asked to never come back.

    Pay Close attention to Rule number 1!

    1. All Posts must be signed with the user's real name, not your screen name. You must use your legal name. If you do not want to do this, then please do not post. If you have to hide your name, then you do not need to be here. First names are ok to use but we encourage first and last names. It's easiest to put your name in your signature line located in your user CP. This will ensure your name is with every post you make.
  2. Oh okay. No big deal. I'm not in a huge rush or anything.

    Any specific books you can recommend for this early in the "process"? Getting my test out of the way would be great.

    As far as designing/building a mew...that shouldn't be much of a problem. I'm actually going to get to work soon on designing a mew that could easily be dismantled and moved if I move to a different part of the valley or something.

    I'm about to finish up a serious project at I'll have pretty much the entire afternoon to scour Youtube for some hawking vids (plus tomorrow is my birthday, so I'm pretty much just going to be drinking beer and not working anyway).

    I'd probably start with a Redtail. Aside from the fact that I've read they are easier to deal with than Kestrals...I (and the woman) am just much more drawn to them. Also, one of my dogs (I have three) is incredible at flushing, with no training even.

    Just shot you a friend request on FB.

    Hey again Jim, Bad time of year for going out hawking with anyone. The molt is on and feathers are dropping. This is actually a good time to going on passing test, looking at designing mews, finding a sponsor... Youtube has a bazillion videos on falconry. Some are silly, some are COOL.
    You might check out Youtube videos by Kenny Sterner of his cast of gyr/peregrine teircels. They're called "The Boys". Search "sterner the boys".
    Do you have an idea what species you want to start with ? It really depends on the prey you have to hunt.

    I searched for you on Facebook. There were about 100 Jimmy Bowmans. Could you search me and do a "friend" request if you want. I don't keep too many "friends". Facebook can be a very weird place as I'm sure you know.

    Later, Dan.

    Hey Jimmy, When you start gathering your falconry gear, don't buy any Sampo swivels. I have a bunch and you can have a few. Sized for redtail, but they'll work for any approximate sized bird. I can make some recommendations on leashes, etc. Books, you're on you own. I have a fair library, but I don't lend.
