Transcript of Falconry and Hunting in the Middle Ages

Falconry and Hunting in the
Middle Ages Falconry Falconry is when you use a hawk, falcon, or eagle
to spot things for you to hunt. Hawks are the
most common. It's a royal sport. People usually practiced falconry in the
afternoon, as it was common to do so. It was well established in the Middle and
Far East by 2000 BC. Falcons usually hunted birds
or small land animals. It took a lot of time and
patience to train a hawk. You had
to hand feed it so it got used to you,
and then send it off to fly with a
string attatched to it and your wrist.
By doing this, you trained it to return
back to you. Hawks were often accompanied by dogs, so killing the prey was easier. Hunting While hunting, the bow was most
commonly used. There are two types of hunting: At Force
Hunting and Bow and Stable hunting. At Force hunting was for the very fit men. They used
long spears and hunted boar. They had dogs to
accomany them. They cornered the boar and then
they went in for the kill. Bow and Stable Hunting was for the not
so fit men. Their weapon was a bow, and
they rode horses. They also use dogs to
aid them in hunting. These hunters usually hunted
deer. Some of the animals hunted included:
stag, deer, boar, rabbits, and game birds
(geese, ducks, pheasant, partridge, and
grouse). Foxes were also hunted, but very
rarely. An animal not hunted for
food, but for sport, was an otter. The lord had forests in
which he hunted or gave other people permission to hunt in. If you were caught hunting in the lord's land without permission, you were given a severe punishment. Your hands, or even your head, could get cut off. Training Educatng a hunter began at age seven. He was assigned a tutor who taught him basic skills including: fletching, crafting, and surviving in the wilderness. Then he had to learn and watch
from his master while taking care of tools and
learning the basics (fletching is when you add
feathers to the end of an arrow). When he was about sixteen
years of age, he could go out hunting by himself. If he
had a wealthy family, a ceremony would take place. Hawking and Hunting Pictures Works Cited Middleagesfoxhunt2. Digital image. Charlottesville Area Real Estate. Web. 29 Mar. 2011. <http://www.charlottesville-area-real-estate.com/images/middleagesfoxhunt2.jpg>.
