Falconry is an old tradition in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom and the Middle East.The ancient sport of using birds of prey to hunt wild animals has existed for at least 4,000 years.During a 45-minute session at the Woodstock Inn in Woodstock, Vermont, a professional falconer flies a trained bird and provides a history of falconry and information about raptors. Then guests can try it themselves, handling and free-flying a Harris's hawk, or they can just observe the sport. In a longer 90-minute session, a second raptor is flown.At New England Falconry in Vermont last month, a young Harris's hawk was eager to do what's he's trained to do.Nicolle estimates there are likely 20 or 30 opportunities for falconry experiences around the U.S. in addition to Woodstock Inn and Bouchaine Vineyards, including in southern Vermont at the Equinox resort, and Broadmoor resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
