I am thinking about getting a falconry license so I can work a trained hunting bird. I am planning to use the bird to control the rodents in our plant nursery, which is an acceptable reason to go for a license in NY. It is a 2 year apprenticeship program and time consuming, so I want to be sure about the commitment. Anyone here have a falconry license? Anyone have experience with keeping falcons for hunting? All input is welcome.
