    I have heard of prize gyr falcons going for in excess of $100K in the Arab nations. But then, the Arabs are very very VERY devoted to their birds and treat them like royalty

    It would be sweet to own a Goss Hawk...Go get my grouse (partridge). Just think I would not waist so many shells trying to hit one. LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    LOL @ NepG! Now that would be a scary sight! No one wants a 6ft hungry plant sliding(jumping??Hopping?? Groping??) after them.

    what an interesting topic , true that if you get a falcon and mistreat it or feed it before letting it go it will probably not return but if you get a hawk it will depend on you and will ignore your mistakes because all it wants is food and shelter . i don
    t think its a real sport as you don't really do much but training , i consider it a hobby . i never knew that raptors can get that expensive , sure i want to get a mynah but falcns and hawk , i think i'll skip on the pricing if i ever want tio get in this hobby but just like nep g i'm all ready in botany .

    It is called a sport because you train the hawk/falcon to hunt and return, they hunt the gamebirds, you give them some of the meat, and you eat the rest, maybe even stuff the bird if it's not all bloody [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] . just like regular hunting [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img] To call falconry a hobby is an insult to the sport. falconers do not keep the birds as pets (If you ever call a falconer a "pet keeper" you are likely to go home with a bloody nose), They do keep the bird in a cage at night though. when hunting, the bird is free and could literally able to fly away if it wanted to. but it stays. It works with the humans for food, water, shelter, everything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
