How long have you been an OFA member?

The first recollection I have of forming a club was when Woody got everyone together at the OKC Zoo in 1974. He called it Oklahoma Falconers Federation or OFF. It kind of fizzled out after he moved to Idaho.


Positions in OFA?

I have served as president of the club



Where do you live?

 I am now in NE Caddo County, south of Cogar or about 12 miles west of  Minco


Job or School?

I work as a shop foreman at the Kenworth truck dealership in OKC

What got you interested in falconry?

I really don't know, it's just something that has always been present in my thoughts.




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

It was tough in early '70's to talk to another falconer, all newcomers were discouraged from developing an interest. The MBT had just been adopted, essentially outlawing falconry for a while, the state would not issue any permits at that time. Like many, I read NAFHH cover to cover, several times. I then illeaglly trapped a passage RT, before I could get a permit, so in Okie spirit I named her Sooner.

I had been talking to Woody via phone some and when I started flying her free I went out to meet him in El Reno and we went hawking, She caught a rabbit our first outing, I was on cloud 9.



What birds do you currently fly?

 Tiercel Hybrid and female Golden Eagle


What birds have you flown in the past?

RT, Harris and several longwings and Golden Eagle



What was your favorite bird and why?

My first bird, Sooner, has to be near the top, it is a magical time flying your first hawk, for me anyway.



What birds do you plan to fly or would like to fly?

 A barbary, and passage peregrine


Favorite Quarry?

I guess it would be ducks and jacks, pretty much been the focus of last forty years

With the best flight in falconry being a falcon's stoop from a nice pitch



Do you have other animals?




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

Give it your all, you will get it all back and then some 


Who have you sponsored?

Bryan Gardner

Peter Tirrel


What goals do you have for your falconry experience?

 To trap and fly a passage peregrine
