Volume 63 was mailed January 29.

This issue was a challenge to get completed, mostly due to a lack of material. The hawking season is always a slow time for articles. Everyone is too busy flying their birds to do any writing. I always get the most articles in the first two months of the molt, and I sure hope that holds true again this year. I have always felt every falconer has at least one article in them, something they can share, even if it is just something simple. Heck, if I can write an article, anyone can. So how about it, why not sit down and put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard? Our guidelines for submissions can be found at: http://www.americanfalconry.com/writersguidelines.html
