Hello everyone, and greetings from Bozeman, Montana!

My name is James Sonntag, I'm a 23yo Software Developer with a passion for the outdoors and a strong love and respect for all birds of prey.

I was first exposed to falconry by a neighbor of mine, when I was just a young boy living in Minnesota; and ever since going on a hunt with him and his partner(I think she was a Broad-winged Hawk), I have always dreamed of a life with one of these majestic creatures.

So now here I am. I've been reading-up on all things falconry (still need to order that CHC study guide), and hope to start making connections around my area. I'm not in a huge rush to get going, since it'll be a good year until I have a suitable place to house it; but I feel like now's the perfect time to prepare and socialize with the others.

The hardest part seems to be locating falconers in my area, so if anyone knows of a falconer in my area, or how to get in touch with the falconry club for Montana, I'd be very grateful!

Thanks for reading and I hope to be able to participate as much as possible!
