My name is Jeremy and I live in south central Mississippi. I am 31 years old and have been deeply interested in falconry for most of my life. However, I have never met any falconers or seen falconry in action other than in books, film, and youtube. I received my packet from Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks earlier today. I have emailed the Central Mississippi Hawking Club requesting info from them. So now I am just kinda waiting. I have a couple more books on the way from Northwoods so I can keep on learning. At this point I just would like to talk with some falconers to see how to proceed and hopefully find someone near enough to me to get started soon.
