As outdoors men and women, one of the best things we can do is to educate the next generation about the world that they will be inheriting. It has been a ridiculously busy last couple of weeks and I have been burning my candle at both ends.

Every year I volunteer at a local festival where they ask me to come and speak about the history of falconry as well as how the sport is practiced today. I get to talk about hawks in general, and i get to hear everyone's stories about the birds that they have known.

And kids love the birds. I like the fact that they seem to intuitively understand the predator prey relationships, and they know that these birds have to kill to live.

Even though I am exhausted, this is time well spent.
