Hawks in Chinese falconry
This is a classic photograph showing just how open falconry is in China when you know where to find it. The art or difficulty is knowing how to find it, everything seems to melt out of sight or appear before your eyes.

All hawks are manned to perfection, adult and immature hawks are manned as rock steady as any imprint from the west. Falconers use the waking method of old but shared through a succession of falconers working in shifts. Hawks are carried until they are manned, haggards are catching quarry within two weeks of being trapped.
