Last week, we enjoyed some wobble trap shooting and a successful antelope hunt near Cora, WY with next generation claiming future turf.  Falconry is referred to as “the sport of Kings” and highly regarded internationally as the ultimate hunting pursuit.  These birds are a cross breed between a wild Gyr and Peregrine Falcon.  Cobra, pictured in this blog post, is 5 years old and this was his first perfect “stoop” on a Sage grouse this season.  David Kennedy is the falconer from Atlanta who spends much of the fall training falcons at his “House of Grouse” cabin in Eden with fellow falconer and breeder Steve Chindgren from Salt Lake City.
