I'm a new falconer just finishing my first season as an apprentice. I had a female kestrel that was way fiesty, but I lost her about a month and a half after we started hunting. It was an amazing experience and I'm excited to try again this winter. My wife is due with our second child in September, so I'm hoping we'll have adjusted to the new lifestyle in time to trap something by the end of December. We'll see - I might have to wait a year for things to calm down. Either way, I'll be getting my first RT in fall of 2010, general or not!

Anyways, I'm still way new and have a lot left to learn, so I'll probably be reading more than posting.
