Live Falcon Hunts in West Georgia

Ancient Art of Falconry

The Ancient Art of Falconry program at Historic Banning Mills allows you to have a once in a lifetime personal experience with live raptors!

Our guests have the chance to learn the history of falconry, a basic introduction to equipment used, weighing, feeding, housing and permitting of the birds. Guests will then have a chance to experience live handling, training, and flying of the birds. Fieldwork will include the use of the lure. Our program uses the Eurasian Eagle-owl, Barbary, Saker and Lanner falcons. Our participants will get to see several of the indigenous raptors but Federal regulations prohibit anyone, other than a licensed falconer, to handle indigenous species of birds of prey.

The program is 4 to 5 hours long. Price is $300 for up to 4 participants. For more than 4 guests, add an additional $60 per person. The maximum number of participants is 10. Must be at least 10 years old to participate. This program is open all year long except major holidays and December 22nd through January 2nd.
