2019 Desert Hawking Classic – Photo Recap

Some call the falconry community a family.  A family of hunter-conservationists that protect and defend raptors and the natural world. The following snap shots are a glimpse of the gathering of falconers and our hunting partners, new and old, that met in Tucson, AZ January 24-27, 2019 for the annual Desert Hawking Classic hosted by the AFA.  We hope to see you again in 2020!
