Anonymous said: how does one go about becoming a falconer? i've always loved the craft and I know a fair share about the birds involved, but i've never really come across a lot of information about falconry itself :o
Are you located in the united states? In the united states you need to have permits, but to have permits you also need to have a sponsor for a 2 year apprenticeship. If you know no falconers, or have none near you becoming a falconer can be difficult. Some states the fish and game won’t find you a sponser, but others may help you to find one if you are truly dedicated.
Check out the website “the modern apprentice”. Excellent place to read up :P
