I am a woman falconer, enjoying the Great Outdoors with a hawk on my fist.
Wednesday, January 14, 2015
My hawking team has been absent from the field for far too long. Between frigid cold and work and other distractions, I've not been hawking in what seems like weeks. CC was flown yesterday, and again today. Yesterday she chased but just didn't contact. Today she hunted with focus and brought #4 bunny to the bag. The forecast is for it to get into the 30s this weekend, and I intend to get out there and do some more hunting. Let's go Girls . . . . we need more food in the hawk freezer before the season is over.
Falconry! Or more appropriately for me, Hawking! It is a passion, and a way of life. I happily pursue this sport, with the loving assistance of my husband. Come along with me for our adventures with the birds. Primarily we actively pursue it in the colder months . . . the rest of the time I try to make this blog as interesting as possible. Come let me share my stories, and feel free to contact me. I always enjoy talking about my obsession with this sport.
