A falcon i had a few years ago. He was a gyr/prairie falcon hybrid. He was quite a bit larger than a kestrel, which i flew last year.

Crazy story:

- Yves Chouinard, the guy who started the Patagonia Company (outdoor and climbing gear)?

- He got started in rock climbing (CA) because of his falconry.

- Climbing gear wasn't all that good then, and he wanted better gear to get to the fledging falcons up on the cliffs.

- He started the Great Pacific Ironworks company, followed by Patagonia.

The rest is history. Pretty remarkable story.

You still hunting falcons?
