Learn about the art of falconry, the raptors used in the practice of falconry, and the need for their conservation
Duration 1 ½ hours
Free-fly hawks through fields and forest as you experience falconry and learn about the lives of raptors and their conservation.
A pre-hunt session of handling and flying hawks followed by a quarry hunt with hawks. Available during the small game season (mid-October through mid-March and at various locations within 20 miles of the Inn). If you want to see these winged predators do what they were made to do – take game in their natural environment – then this is the experience for you!
We meet in the early morning at or close to the Inn and head out together with our hunting Harris Hawks to one of our hunting fields.
Learn about hunting with raptors, field etiquette, and dressing game taken by the hawks. Joining these birds in a hunt is a rare experience.
