As crow hawker said the other day anybody can read a book and talk the talk. It would be easy for anybody to obtain a few birds, put up a few pictures and convince everybody they are the real mc coy falconer. Then the breeding starts and the young birds are easily sold because they are bred by a name from the Internet.Its easy to fool people on the net, I could go out next season and take game by other means and just stick the hawk on top of them for the photo.Nobody would know any different and I could be breeding the next summer and a book out the year after lol

ha like you said it would be easily done. but to be honest with the price of birds nowadays would it really be worth the effort? unless you was breeding a rare, expensive and sought after bird there just isnt enough money in it like they used too. like crow hawker said you couldn't get a harris for under a grand. a gos was closer to 2 grand and now there worth absolutely minimal amounts compared to what they used to, i can remember jasper on here breeds peregrines and he was saying everybody just wanted to imprint them for breeding purposes, so it wont be long before peregrines are going for shocking prices too. its a shame

That's why I don't believe anything on the Internet, I know how easy it would have been for me to convince everybody on these forums that I had done more with my hawk last season,so if I could do it anybody can.
Even pictures mean nothing.
But I love the Internet and i am addicted to it lol

The trouble with falconry DVDs and books is they are a mix of how to do things plus hunting, I only want to watch or read about hunting not how to tie the falconers knot ha.
