A New Tool for Slip Management
Durable laminated cards come with detailed instructions, teaching suggestions and supporting digital files.
What does it take for a hawk to succeed in the hunt? In short, a successful slip is a matter of finding and pressing advantage. As described in the book Four Falconry Fundamentals, any slip can include more than one advantage: height, speed, proximity, surprise, and the structure of cover are just a few of the factors every falconer must consider in setting up a perfect slip.
So, what's the right combination for the hawk and quarry you have?
This novel teaching tool helps apprentice falconers and their mentors visualize, convey and discuss the finer points of slip management by illustrating the necessary components of a successful flight. This product is designed and produced by Matt Mullenix and is based on his unique approach to presenting complex falconry concepts; it features original falconry illustrations by artist Anderson Menara and comes with additional print and digital teaching materials to help bring the lesson home.
