Master Falconer Tim Sell - NAFA North Pacific Director
Tim started falconry in 1973 at the age of 13 under the tutelage of Jon Mousel. He has flown all of the species available in Colorado and moved to Alaska in 1982. There he flew long wings, gyrfalcons and peregrines at waterfowl and occasionally ptarmigan. The past several years he has flown a Russian goshawk at waterfowl, mostly geese.
General Falconer Stephen Heckel - Web Site Administrator
Stephen started Falconry in 2018 under the guidance of his sponsor, master falconer Dutch Overly. He lives in Chickaloon, AK with his family and currently flies "EEST" an Eastern Red-Tailed hawk he trapped in Florida. Her name is an acronym derived from his daughters Elizabeth, Emily, Stephanie, and wife Tena. Stephen says they all played a major supporting role in his success in becoming a falconer and trapping his first bird.
