Courses and Mentoring

Adrian Hallgarth’s ”Lure School” will once again be running a 5 day course from 4th-8th March inclusive In Perthshire

The course is designed for long-wing falconers of all levels to expand their skill and knowledge base on the art of accurate controlled falcon luring, a tricky subject to learn!.

There are just 6 places available for the week and the participants will spend mornings in Our luxury classroom studying theory and afternoons flying a variety of well trained falcons from Adrian’s collection including Gyr, Peregrine, Saker, Kestrel as well as several hybrids (your own falcon is most welcome) thus giving each student the opportunity to fly at least 5 falcons per day each.

Video of each days lure practice is available for analyst’s, and a rapid learning curve is guaranteed.

In addition to the flying you will also get the opportunity to construct your own practice lure from scratch as well as the manufacture of natural lures

The course is fully risked assessed and all students are covered by comprehensive insurance. This course is ideal for anyone with serious intention of keeping and flying a Falcon.

A great way for employers to invest in their staff.

We have shied away from short courses, despite massive demand! We don’t offer them for a simple reason....... they don’t work! Learning enough to care for your first bird correctly takes a lot more than a 5 day course!

Our Head Falconer Adrian Hallgarth is a published Author and expert in his field after more than 30 years as an industry professional falconer.

Under his guidance and tutoring we offer the would be falconer two options, the first is our popular, ground breaking
