    So once you have your license, and go through all the tests and build the facility and all that, you are encouraged to go out and trap a WILD raptor to keep in capativity for your amusement??!

    that SUCKS! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    Falconry sounds so cool. If I didn't have kids and had more land, I would definitely buy one. I'm usually not for a lot of rules and regulation, but in this case, think it is a good idea. I think I would make it even more difficult to own one.

    Good luck, Trapsrocks! I am happy for you.

    Trapsrock,
    according to the site posted above, you have to first take and pass the test, then do a 2 YEAR appreniceship! then build the facility for the bird, then have it inspected...all BEFORE you can legally keep a falcon!

    If you have the bird now, sounds like you are probably breaking the law..

    Scot



    "Next let's talk about obtaining a falconry license. It's not easy, but it's that way to protect the birds and the sport from abuse. First you take a written test on biology, training, and veterinary aspects of raptors, to pass you must score at least 80%. Next you have to find a sponsor to train you. Ckick here for more information on finding a spoonsor. He will have a general or master falconry permit, and sponsor your two year apprenticeship. Then you must build a suitable facility to house your raptor and obtain necessary equipment. This will be physically inspected by a Game and Fish representative. After paying the state fee you become a licensed falconer. Now you can trap a raptor, usually a Redtail hawk."
