OFA Members Apprentice Workshop- Traps and Trapping!

I am planning an apprentice workshop for Saturday, September 3rd, that will cover various aspect of trapping raptors, with a focus on trapping red tailed hawks.  We will have lots of pictures and videos, as well as many different styles of traps to discuss.  The exact time and location are still yet to be decided, but the intent is to host it somewhere central near Oklahoma City.

Several other members have volunteered their time and assistance with different portions of the presentation as well, and it should be a great time with decades of experience available to be shared.  I plan to have snacks and drinks available, and I encourage anyone who would like to attend to RSVP through either e-mail,  or a phone call to me.  My contact information can be found under the members section of this website in the OFA directory.  Also, feel free to contact Dan, and he will make sure and pass the RSVP along to me.

Knowing the number of interested parties ahead of time will help us choose the best venue to accommodate our group.  Though we are still a month or so out, we do need to get the details nailed down pretty quickly, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

This event is going to be full of good friends and good times, and I encourage everyone to come.  Whether you have been practicing falconry for 30 years, or you plan on trapping your first red tail this season, this is going to be a fun get together, and will be a great chance to meet back up and see friends prior to the beginning of this years upcoming hawking season.

I look forward to seeing everyone there!

All the best,
Chris Kimble


Just an update on the upcoming OFA Trapping Workshop.  Ron Lloyd has managed to secure a class room at the training grounds of Fire Station #5 in Edmond for us to use.  We will get started at 11:00 AM on September 3rd.  The address is 5300 E. Covell Rd.  Edmond, OK.  It is located on the south east corner of I-35 and East Covell Road.  Exit #143 on I-35.

OFA will be providing a lunch, but we ask that A-M bring desserts, and N-Z bring a side dish.  We have been getting a lot of RSVPs, but if you haven't yet and plan on attending, let us know.  We need to provide the details to the fire department before the event, so we can have the proper seating ready.

I wanted to remind everyone that these types of workshops are just one of the many benefits of being an OFA member, and while this is geared toward our new comers to the sport, our most seasoned members are also encouraged to attend and participate in the discussion!

Finally, the OFA Hats have arrived!  We will have them there and available to purchase.

We look forward to seeing you there!

All the best,
Chris Kimble
