    Well,
    as an overseas falconer and non-member, let me congratulate the NAFA president and board, for being so proactive and forward looking, and for ignoring the ridiculous efforts to undermine what...

    All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    I've found it quite interesting myself, in that it seems experienced falcons (irrespective of species) seem to be moderating their speed in the stoop when quarry is flushed across open ground, but...

    Hi Geoff,

    a couple of examples.

    Firstly in Scotland, testing the transmitter by attaching it to the collar of my pointer.

    Hi Geoff,

    the very fact that they are not secure, in my opinion, negates any benefit in terms of simplicity of use.
    Well designed, more traditional arrangements in leather or braided materials,...

    Hi Jeff,

    I wonder how long it will be before 'triangulation' is referred to in falconry circles as 'a defunct term once used in relation to tracking lost hawks'?:)

    Best wishes,

    Tony.

    Hi Geoff,

    I know what you mean. I invested in the 434 uhf system and have hardly used that either. But there will be times, and when they come I'm sure this additional stuff will take away much of...

    Hi Geoff,

    I've been talking with a couple of goshawking friends today, who are quite excited about the potential benefits of this new system to them.

    I've heard a few stories used as examples...

    Hi Robert,

    excuse a question from someone with little understanding of 'Hi-Tec', but in regard to the i-phone/i-pad, are there particular models of either that are compatible or to be preferred?

    Hi David,

    over the past couple of seasons I've seen two GPS systems in use, and this one adds even more to the mix.
    As an aid to recovering a lost hawk it's a real step up from conventional...

    Hi Ken,

    as you know, I'm not the type to get excited by gadgets and new technology, but I can hardly contain myself with this.
    I think the interesting possibilities, as well as the practical...

    sorry my friend, I missed your post until now, shameless plug and all ;-)

    Hi Ken,

    for many years I used anglo-indian hoods that I made myself and moulded to a degree.
    They were nothing like the quality of yours, but a good anglo-indian pattern takes some beating in...

    Hi Scott,

    as you know, Helen's a dear friend of mine, so how could I not support that suggestion?

    But let me suggest another, by another dear friend. How about John Loft's epic translation,...

    Sorry, it was too late to edit by the time I realised I'd missed out a couple of crucial words, and have now inserted 'passage' and 'elsewhere', where they had been left out.

    Hi Nick,

    that's simply not the case, and yet demand for passage merlins for lark hawking didn't exist.

    I have friends who have flown passage merlins at skylarks, and as history bears out, they are not necessarily to be preferred to eyasses, hacked or unhacked, for the very reason you hint at.

    Hi Marcus,

    I believe, ever more so, that falconry is an art rather than a science, and would always encourage anyone who likes to take a scientific approach to keep it as fluid as possible....

    Dear Jim,

    it's always fascinating to see different ideas put forward, as it is with yours, but I'm perhaps a little old fashioned and I don't really understand what some of the modern terms mean,...

    Hi Andy,

    despite a very kind invitation to visit Ricardo and Ed, I'm hoping our ambitions to meet up in England some time in the future come off.

    I know what you mean about life getting in the way sometimes. It's hard enough getting out to fly falcons each day, let alone writing about it too.

    I also know how, once something...

    you might have to do as I did --- get him drunk then shove the book and a pen in his hand before you show him his bedroom;)

    Oh heck Bill, you should have brought that copy with you for Andy to sketch something in. Next time perhaps?

    Hope you're well Ricardo, and look forward to getting to know you Ed.
