The first in a series of innovative teaching aids developed by Four Falconry Fundamentals author Matt Mullenix, this product helps novice falconers grasp (and experienced falconers explain) the cornerstones of effective weight management. Use this unique tool to understand:
* How to reach a raptor's optimal response weight at a predetermined hour
* How to calculate an average hourly rate of weight loss
to feed the right amount following a hunt
With an intuitive design that highlights a hunting hawk's daily flying, feeding and resting schedule, this card models the internal process of metabolism that brings a trained raptor reliably back to its best response weight. Using these visual elements and a simple formula explained on the card itself, any falconer can calculate a hawk's average hourly weight loss and accurately forecast its weight the following day.
Master the technique in minutes, and teach it to anyone!
