What got you interested in falconry?

Kid talked about falconry when I was visiting a friend in North Carolina back in 1993.  I couldn't do it then because I was in the U.S. Navy, but once I retired, the interest was re-sparked.

Who was your sponsor? (or mentors and influences?)

Greg Stipp

I would have to say the red tail, since it's the only bird I have had

I would like to fly a kestrel....hopefully next year

What is your favorite quarry?


Do you have other animals?

Beagle, salt/fresh water fish, tons of bees, and a corn snake

Favorite falconry story?

Really don't have one that comes to mind

Funniest falconry story?

At the Wildlife Expo, I was showing a few girls who were around 10 years old the bird, and handed one of them my glove.  I asked her if she knew what she was touching.  When she said she didn't, I replied "Quail guts."  She gave a disgusted look, and dropped the glove.

Favorite quote?

"I am serious, and don't call me Shirley!"

What is the best tip that you would give someone new to the sport?

Study/listen to your mentor and for the love of god, stay off of falconry message sites while you are an apprentice.

Who have you sponsored?

No one

What goals do you have for your falconry experience?

To keep learning about the sport, and to pass what I have learned onto others
