hello, I also live in the Pacific NW. In a small, usually wet place called Carnation. I'm wondering what's the best way to meet falconers? Loulou
"Men are less hesitant about harming someone who makes himself loved than one who makes himself feared because love is held together by a chain of obligation which, since men are wretched creatures, is broken on every occasion in which their own interests are concerned; but fear is sustained by dread of punishment which will never abandon you."
LouLou, read this forum and ask your questions. You can also contact Brian Kellogg and talk to him. He is a really nice guy and has been doing falconry for about 30 years. You can also contact people on this site including me if you have questions. We will try and answer them and get you going in the right direction with falconry.
