Hi my name is Devon i live in Fayetteville NC. Im intrested in getting a merlin one day. Ive been reading up and studying what materials i can find and trying to find local groups unfortunately any sites i can find about local groups are acouple years old and the North Carolina Falconers Guild website lnk ncfg.org never seems to work. I'm hoping to find some locals that would be willing to talk with me answer some question maybe allow me to see their set-up or go out and watch them fly their birds. I'd really like to make sure falconry is for me before i jump to far into it
