Falconry Update: Test Day Tomorrow!
As of right now I am just a girl with one hole punched in her Hawkin' dance card though. That punch was getting my application with a sponsor's signature on it. Tomorrow morning is the next big step. I drive an hour and a half north to Warrensburg and sit down to take a huge written exam on all my knowledge gained this far. The test's study guide (that well worn tome in the picture) is over a hundred pages and covers biology, species, hunting, tracking, feathers, flight, health, food, gear, and everything else someone with a basic knowledge of the sport needs to know. I have been reading books, talking to falconers, studying the packet and I hope my preparations are enough. This test is only offered twice a year so I hope I make the grade.
Wish me luck!
