Ben Long has put together excellent starter packs for the starting falconer for a reasonable price including a free gift.
The items shown are the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM for the training and maintenance of any bird-of-prey used for falconry. Please note that this is NOT a lower-quality range of equipment, but is selected from our normal range, world-renowned for quality, style and durability. The Harris Hawk or Redtailed Buzzard are widely-regarded as the best for a beginner, although other species of birds can also be catered for.
This is all the essential equipment you will need to train and maintain a medium sized hawk (e.g. male Harris) for the foreseeable future! The best start you and your raptor can get in your new careers!
- Harris hawk glove (full length, single layer buckskin)
- Jess set
- Digital scales
- Creance (+stick)
- Rabbit lure pad
- Leather dressing
- and FREE hawking vest, or bag and strap – please specify which you prefer, and chest measurement if you prefer the vest option
It is also possible to vary the items in the pack (e.g. portable instead of outdoor bowperch), with a price adjustment as necessary.
Please note: For the glove size, please give us these measurements:
a. base of wrist to tip of middle finger.
b. across the hand on the level of the knuckles.
Please allow 3 weeks for delivery if possible.
