Hunting is a tradition passed down through the generations, but there is one method of hunting that pre-dates even the spear. Falconry, the ancient sport of utilizing a trained bird of prey to hunt wild game, is a sport practiced by less than 200 people in Missouri.

Interpreter Meagan Duffee-Yates, licensed falconer with both the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the State of Missouri, will explore the history of falconry from its roots in Asia to today in Missouri. Learn about this ancient sport, about the methods and equipment used and see her live falconry birds.

The program continues the museum's ongoing series, "Museum After Hours," held the first Wednesday of each month. In addition to the program, the museum's galleries will be open until 9 p.m.

The program will be held in the Missouri State Museum's History Hall, located in the east wing of the Missouri State Capitol.
