Young Hawker

The cover of the Georgia Fish & Game brochure for this year. As Anne Pearse Hocker says, no "Nature Deficit Syndrome" here!

That's the daughter of Jimmy Tompkins, Harris Hawk breeder in GA.

Ahh, I thought that was Jimmy's daughter. Kudos to them both! That's brilliant.

Second that.

I flew one of Jimmy's tiercels this past winter, a fine, fast, game-cathing little dude. Admiration to the family for a hunting daughter! You go girl!

Thought that looked like Jimmy's daughter. We never met back in Georgia—I was gone, I think, before he got into the sport—but I met Jimmy and his family when NAFA was last in Kearney, Nebraska. Good people, and I'm glad that C. is now flying a hawk of her own—with obvious success.

Ga. DNR and the local club(s) had better get ready for a huge influx of inquiries...

My boys will be jealous Steve; knowing I used to handle and feed your birds as a young girl and may not have the chance until they get older here in MA - sis K

Yes, that's my daughter and her PMRT "Buke". She's flown him for the last 3 seasons (since November '06) and has done quite well with him. Thanks for sharing her cover shot with everyone.
