I received my falconry packet yesterday and upon review have found that apprentices in this state can only use wild caught Red Tails. It's okay really because I think it would be the best learning experience between it and the KBird, but still, a choice would have been nice. Also, the packet was big. Came with a catalog for Western Sporting and it seems when it comes to state regulations and housing of raptors they have gone with Minn. regs. Several of the info pactkets were from Minn. I believe squirrel season starts Sept. 1st. Oh, and their recommended reading list is 15 books long... ouch.
