Thang about this nice country is the size of it, its just so huge will little to no road systems.

I have to go find the hares, right now they are about 11 hours away.

IF you fly a falcon high like the lower 48 guys you lose it , because you have no way to follow it if it rakes away.

Its awesome to say the least but its a very harsh falconry climate.

The coldest I have hawked in is about 20 below and it was not easy. I would much rather it be about 15 degrees, but thats just me,
