I want to be a junior falconer.Let me know what to do.I love all falcons and hocks and perrigrines.I live in Las Vegas. I moved recently from ChicagolMany perrigrines there.I have lived in zMinnesota, wonderful owls there. One problem I dont have a car. .
I’m incredibly interested in getting the proper certification to becoming a Falconer. Does anyone know if that is possible from here in Las Vegas? If so, does anyone have any details (like costs, location, requirements, etc.)? Please let me know, if anyone could help me out with this. I appreciate any time or effort spent to respond to my question. Thank you!
So if this is accurate, should I pass the test before even asking anyone to take me on as an apprentice?
Also, as of right now, if I’m just looking to become a falconer without owning a falcon/hawk/eagle—is that possible without sponsorship? —or is this process going to require apprenticeship, sponsorship, and having a living habitat for a raptor?
I really want this. I’m 35 years old. I have three boys who would also love to take this on later in life. We just purchased four copies of the California Hawking Club Apprenticeship Study guide (we just need to wait to receive them in the mail). However, every time I research this subject here in Vegas, I get pretty discouraged. I’m unsure how I never came across this message board before, maybe I wasn’t googling the correct trigger words, but I’m definitely happy that I found it!
I don’t seem to see any clubs Nevada/Vegas based. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know. I’m really serious about this, it’s not something that just came to me randomly after watching a documentary or something🤣 (not that there is anything wrong with that). I’ve loved Falcons/Hawks/Eagles/Owls my whole life (also an obsession for my kids because of me😂). And it has been a dream of mine, I just never had the time to pursue it. Now that I may have the time, it’s looking like I live in a difficult location for this to happen. And I really hope that’s not the case.
