Nancy Cowan has been a falconer since the beginning.

Well, not the beginning of hunting with a bird of prey, which dates back thousands of years, but the beginning of the sport in New Hampshire.

Cowan’s husband, Jim, influenced the law that allowed birds of prey a legal way to hunt wild game in the mid-1980s. She helped him with the legislation, but didn’t think she’d get drawn into falconry herself.
