those seasons are very long and certain wild life management units are closed to quail hunting and pheasant some units you and only shoot roosters I find it very interesting

There are only about 150 falconers in the state. The impact from falconers is so small it has no affect on the resource.

It is a long drawn out process just to get a permit. My hats off to the guys who do it. I wanted to sign bad but realized how much time it took. Plus those guys never know for sure if their bird will be coming back when they let him go.

Well it's not some secret they're trying to keep. Appears in in the digest each year. Falconry is a legit form of hunting and I think the dedicated few that practice it deserve their time afield like the rest of us.

Seasons for all game have to be concurrent since you can't be selective. Can't whisper in their ear," roosters only, no hare til next week."

As stated above, their are so few falconers that the resource isn't adversely affected.

I would love to tag along on a hunt to observe.
