Guests arrive to our facility and begin learning about the history of falconry. A hawk, vulture, eagle, falcon and several species of owls are on the fists of the falconers. Guests learn of the diversity of each of the birds and their individual hunting techniques. The birds are trained and are very used to being handled. Guests are allowed to hold certain birds for photo opportunities. For those participating in the hawk walk a guided tour of the aviaries is given with further discussion about the collection. Questions are welcomed and the time will "fly" by. For those opting for the falconry excursion a 2 minute drive to our hunting preserve will allow them the experience of seeing the birds fly through the trees looking for game. We adhere to all state hunting restrictions so there are limitations during certain times of the year. We discuss in advance with the guests what their interest and tolerance for hunting game is. We are very respectful of the fact that hunting is not for everyone. An easy walk through the fields and woods is necessary for the full experience. For very young children and folks with mobility issues, a modified program can be arranged.
TC Management began their interest in falconry over 60 years ago. It is a family run business with all involved passionate about the sport and art of training and flying birds of prey. We have the largest privately owned collection of birds of prey in the United States. We breed exotic birds that exist no where else in the country. We have a deep understanding of the history of the sport and love to share it with others. Falconry and raptor breeding has been a life time passion and we have travelled the world in pursuit of understanding its cultural influences.
Our Goshen NY facility is the home base and houses the collection. Guests will walk the grounds and be able to photograph the birds and ask questions. For those participating in the excursion a walk through our fields and woods allows for the full appreciation of the bird's hunting techniques.
