The course schedule is demanding and intense while also being great fun. Three days is not enough time to become a falconer. However, students that complete this course will come away with the knowledge of how to choose a sponsor, the time commitment involved, necessary experience and falconry licensing requirements. Our apprentice falconry course was developed to give would-be falconers as much information as possible to help make their apprentice years successful and rewarding.
We put this program together from the perspective of our own apprenticeships; what information were we lacking in our early training that would have made our apprenticeships more fulfilling for ourselves and especially our raptors? This course is also a good primer for raptor rescue volunteers and others interested in learning falconry techniques for research, immersion and enjoyment.
During the first two workshop days, students will learn the basics of raptor husbandry, manning and training, the ins and outs of current laws and regulations, and how to make essential basic falconry equipment. In addition, students will be taken out on a hunt for the opportunity to gain knowledge of field etiquette and some hunting strategies. While our course in and of itself will not make you an apprentice, nor will it find you a sponsor, it will give you a very solid footing in, and a better understanding of, the ancient sport of falconry.
Potential sponsors know that our graduates will have a competent understanding of the basics of falconry. Minimum age is Minimum class size 9 people.
