Hello everyone. After several says of searching the internet, it looks like I've finally found the best site.

As the title says, I'm in huntsville, AL. I have absolutely no experience with falconry. I've always thought it was fascinating, but until a few days ago, it never occurred to me that it was something that I could actually do here in the U.S.

Anyway, right now I'm just researching and learning. But, from what I can tell, there doesn't seem to be many, if any, falconers in my area. Can any of you suggest a group or a person that I could meet with and maybe go on a hunt or something? I have no firsthand knowledge of this, so I'd really like to see it up close and personal before I start making any commitments like finding a sponsor.

I'm an avid outdoorsman and I truly love animals. I have a lot of experience with keeping various types of animals, just not raptors.
