I have been lurking here for a little while and I figured I would introduce myself. I am pre-apprentice and submitted all of my paperwork 3 weeks ago (still waiting on a response). I became interested in falconry after helping my friend (now sponsor) flush game for his Harris hawk. I spent the last half of the season hunting with him whenever I could and became hooked! I have been an upland game hunter since legally able to and bow hunted white tail for quite a few years. Falconry seems like a whole new level of interaction with nature and I look forward to earning my license.
