New hard top for the falconry wagon. I’ve always been pretty diehard soft top with my jeeps. But I have to admit, it is nice. #falconer #jeeplife #rubicon #falconry #adventure #wilderness #outdoors #jeepwrangler #jeeprubiconhardrock

It is amazing how quickly they adapt to the routine. Salt, is chilling while I clean her weathering area and refill her bath pan. She is a salty passage Tundra Peregrine Falcon and I love her. #falcon #falconer #falconry #raptor #peregrine #hunting #huntress #peregrine #tundraperegrine

I find it so difficult to look away from an eating raptor. After all this time, I still find it so fascinating to watch. This was my last flight with Salt for a couple weeks. I will be on vacation soon. She is really figuring out our relationship. It is amazing to see her using more sky to gain height and all the while, getting more and more locked into my signals. I will be introducing Scout, my German Short-Haired Pointer, soon. They are already buddies, but I have not had them hunting together. Looking forward to getting back to finish out the season with them. In the Fall I plan to start the season with a big trip to North Dakota to fly her (with Scout) on pheasant, duck, grouse and Hungarian Partridge. #falconry

I know I don’t look it (the sun was blinding me!), but I am very happy to have the first free flight out of the way with this awesome Tundra Peregrine. Any day you go home with your hawk is a good day!

It’s about this relationship between man, falcon and dog. I am always amazed at how quickly a wild raptor can come to see a canine as part of it’s new scenario. Pretty obvious that Salt is used to Scout. Can’t wait to get them working together in the field. #hunting #falconry #peregrinefalcon #germanshorthairedpointer

Flashback Friday? Eli, now 17yrs old, destined to be a falconer. Became a licensed falconer when he was 12. The second in N.C. to do so. He was a natural, for obvious reasons. He was in the woods with me since he was 3. Falconry, like team sports, teaches things way outside the scope of what one would expect. I am proud that my boys have become such fine young men. #falconry #family #gyrxperegrine #gyrfalcon #peregrinefalcon #nature #outdoors #adventure #hunting
