Default Newbie looking for experience

Hello folks
My name is Craig and i am from Glasgow, and i have been interested in falconry for years but have never made the jump as i am aware what is involved and the commitment needed, so i am looking to gain experience, i have hooked up with a bird of prey centre in my area to gain knowledge and i am volunteering with them at weekends, and am looking to tag along with someone i could maybe go hawking with wen the season starts, any takers?

Hi
I don't think they do much hunting either
But will definitely give you the best advice on someone
Who will take you
They have got some amazing birds there tho
A great place to learn all the basics of keeping birds of prey
