Take a step back in time to experience classic medieval falconry in the North of England with this incredible trip to interact first-hand with peregrines, red grouse, and eagles. Beginning November 1, you and a guest will fly from New York into Manchester Airport and pick up an SUV to take you around to the most exclusive and private estates in North Yorkshire. You will spend three days red grouse hawking on Grouse Moor followed by 4 days in Lincolnshire for partridge and pheasant hawking as well as eagle hunting. You and your guest will also be treated to a specialized hunting dog training session with your falconer guide Simon Tyers as well as have your experience documented by an expert photographer.

Grand prize trip includes flight, lodging, breakfast, transportation to and from Manchester Airport, $1,000 in spending money and a signed copy of Simon Tyers’ book on falconry. This is an incredible opportunity to experience classic falconry as it was meant to be. Each donor who contributes at least $50 is automatically entered to win. Winners are responsible for arranging their own transportation to JFK Airport. Per the sweepstakes rules, no donation is necessary, but The Falconry Fund appreciates the support. All donations provide funds for the Falconry Center and enables further advocacy for the sport.

Winners must test negative for Covid19 within 72 hours of the flight leaving for Europe to travel overseas.

“Having been a falconer for over 50 years, like most it has become a way of life rather than just a pastime. My journey has allowed me many experiences and helped me develop as both falconer and highly successful dog trainer. The experience of having trained most working breeds and competed at the highest level successfully, has been as rewarding as my time in the field with falcons or hawks. I naturally seek for perfection in all I do and I am always keen to share both my knowledge and experiences with fellow falconers, dog handlers and hunting enthusiasts to improve what we do in the field. My recent publication ‘The Specialist Falcon’, details my history and where I find myself now and I hope goes someway to show how, why and what I do with both Falcons and dogs. I look forward to presenting my book and also many conversations with whoever is successful in joining us in November here in the UK where I will be happy to discuss in detail any part of my knowledge.”
