Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

In Search of the Perfect Bird

As some of you may know, my dad is a licensed falconer, which means he has a license which permits him to trap, own, train, and hunt with the raptor of his choice (more or less). Sadly, we lost our female hawk this Summer due to heat exhaustion, so this trapping season finds us out scouting again!


Now, there are many laws and rules for falconers to abide by, seeing as falconry is a federally regulated sport. You may only trap immature birds because the mature birds are needed for mating. Although they are trying to change that law, it has not gone into effect yet. That law kept us from keeping a beautiful, massive, female red-tail hawk. Here are some pictures of our adventure:

Love,

Lou
