This documentary offers an intimate view of falconry and three longwingers flying their peregrines and hybrids at grouse in Montana. I certainly admire the passion they have to the sport, but they’ve sacrificed a lot to do it – leaving friends and family to move into the foothills of the Rockies. While I love falconry I feel that there’s a balance to be stuck between flying your bird and life outside of it, such as family and work. the telemetry chases they have to make to recover their birds is a bit much as well. It makes me appreciate my red-tail and the fact that they generally hunt close to the falconer. Still, it’s a fun movie to watch if you have an hour.
