Introduction to Falconry Workshop

Learn more about the ancient and exciting sport of falconry!

Raptor Experience

Falconry is by definition “hunting wild game with a trained raptor”. This ancient sport is an exciting and captivating activity and is a legal and regulated in the province of Ontario.

The commitment required however to own care for an hunt with a raptor is massive. With over 30 years as a general falconer, Tom Goldsmith will be leading a workshop at the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre to outline some considerations a person should keep in mind before committing to this sport.

Some of the topics covered will be:

  • Is falconry for you?
  • Care a housing for your raptor
  • Falconry birds for the beginner
  • General equipment
  • Training for hunting
  • Hunting with your bird
