Description

This falconry classic, published for the first time in the U.S., is the Bible for this ever-growing country pursuitOnce the pursuit of royalty and aristocracy, the 4,000-year-old sport of falconry is the sport of the day. With courses and clubs all around the country, and web pages throughout the internet, interest in falconry has never been bigger -- The New York Times recently reported that trained falcons are even being used to scare off other birds that may fly into the engines of airliners!Phillip Glasier's Falconry and Hawking is the essential reference on this challenging sport, for both beginners and advanced participants, and the Bible for modern falconers. The book covers everything from the history, the birds themselves, training, housing, tools and equipment, handling the new arrival, manning and early training, flying falcons out of the hood, flying short-wings, imping and coping, hack and hacking back, and making hoods, bells, bags and gloves, and much, much more -- and every technique is explained with step-by-step instructions and illustrated by over 170 photographs and diagrams. This is a must addition for anyone interested in falconry or the pleasures of country pursuits.
