West Side Field Meet 2016

West Side Field Meet 2016

The west side field meet is a gathering of falconers for a day of falconry. Straight up, no fluff, just hunting with hawks and other falconers. I generally look forward to this outing as a way to visit with old friends and to learn from others.  It’s always a good idea to keep up with skills and learn new things.  

A good hunt ends with you and your bird back together again. 

Cedar’s day began with a great start!  Kida flushed a bunny very quickly into the hunt, only to have Cedar give a swipe at it and miss. Cedar wasn’t discouraged however, as she quickly recovered, attacked a squirrel nest and nailed a big fox squirrel as it bailed out of the nest.  All this excitement after only five minutes into the hunt.  The folks who came with got a great closeup experience with Cedar and the hunt.
