Description

At Wildfell, we love our 12 and 20-bores.  Yet, before firearms there was falconry.  Though uncommon today, hunting gamebirds using falcons and hawks has never lost its efficacy.  So, even if you’re a dedicated wingshooter, take the opportunity to see how it’s done the medieval way.

Join a master falconer from New England Falconry hunting primarily pheasant, experiencing human and hawk working together like hand-in-glove (And you’ll need the glove.  Talons are sharp!).  This 3-hour session begins with a short primer on falconry history followed by direct instruction on handling and flying a raptor, and then onto the hunt.  With success, you’ll have game meat that can turn any meal into a gourmet dinner.
