Falconry video


  There is a video made by a Huston family of directors in Hollywood. It is a quiet interaction between three falconers at their homes and in a Montana grouse hunting camp.

  It lasts a bit over an hr. but if you enjoy quiet banter and dry humor please watch it. It also clearly explains the passion falconers feel for their birds and their artform.
 There is a bit of "language", just a heads up.
 Here's the link. [sign in to see URL]

  If you get a chance to watch it I'd like to know what you thought.

Re: Falconry video


I'm in the same boat as Queeny, Falconr! Are there any shorter versions of the video. It sounds really interesting and I'd love to watch, but I'd be so far over what I have that I'd not be able to pay my bill! LOL. If I had unlimited, I'd watch it in a heartbeat!! I'm also on Verizon Wireless..... emoticon

Re: Falconry video


  There is a video on Utube of the last 5 min. or so including a flight after sage grouse with gryfalcon hybrids.

 Not sure exactly where, but a search of "Sterner falcons" or "Sterner grouse falconry" might pull it up.

  Its just a bit of good dry humor and beautiful grouse country. Wanted to share my passion with you.

  Dan.

And I'm so grateful that you wanted to share you passion with us.. emoticon

Would these be the Youtube vids you were referring to. There are 3 of them and they say, "From the Documentary" on them?








Each is awesome!!! emoticon

Re: Falconry video


  Yes those are from longer videos.
The middle one in from the "Stand Up and Wave Your Glove" video.

 What shouldn't be implied from the shortened versions are that it is easy to get the flights that were filmed. A good day hawking is when your bird flies high and true and you come with her or him at the end of the day.

 Few thing can come near the almost sensual feeling of the powerful grip of a hawk or falcon through a leather gauntlet, or the sight of your bird high overhead waiting for you to flush game. It's beautiful, powerful, heart-pounding sometimes heart-breaking. Hard to explain.
  It is often called a sport, but to those who know it, falconry is an art, a passion.
  Glad you enjoyed.
Be well, Dan.
