Guest Talk: Falconer Katherine Browne goes on a little hunt in the Colorado hills

There is nothing that gets me excited about trapping a bird like going out with two of my best falconry buddies and two fantastic birds that are on their game. This past weekend I invited Deanna Curtis and Roger Tucker out for the first annual WOMA, Women’s Outdoor Media Association, retreat. For the retreat I planned a long weekend of falconry, grouse hunting, and fly fishing. I based our activities on my favorite things to do and for this group that worked perfectly. Saturday morning we started out at the Gunnison Sportsmen’s Association doing some skeet shooting after which we headed to breakfast then out with the birds. While eating breakfast with Roger, Deanna, Sylvia and all the retreat participants I was vibrating with excitement about the coming hunt. I had hunted with Deanna and Roger in the past and knew we were in for a fantastic hunt. After breakfast we drove out to the hunting spot and Rodger treated us to a falconry talk while Deanna prepared her hen Red-Tail Karma for the hunt. Read the rest of Katherine’s story here.
