  • 13 June 2019   —    Speakers Series featuring Lt. Col. Kent Carnie

    Location: Archives of Falconry

    Join us as world-class falconer and Archives of Falconry Founder, Lt. Col. Kent Carnie, shares a description of falconry, what it is (and is not), a brief history (international and American), the falconer’s passion, and the role of falconers and their sport vis-à-vis The Peregrine Fund. Lt. Col. Carnie originally was trained as a zoologist but enjoyed a military career as a Middle East specialist. Fascinated with falconry as a ten year-old, his passion for the sport has ruled his life since. An early member of The Peregrine Fund’s Board of Directors, in 1986 he conceived of and, for the next 20 years, directed The Archives of Falconry. Most recently, having hawked ducks with a Gyrfalcon x Merlin hybrid for some 9 seasons, he has retired from the field.

    This event is open only to Peregrine Fund members and Idaho Falconers Association Members. Registration information will be emailed to Peregrine Fund and Idaho Falconers Association Members and will contain event details.
