Shelf Perch

The screen perch I used last year was a bit "intrusive" given the already tight space offered by an apartment so I took some inspiration from other shelf perches I've seen and made this up this weekend:

Attached directly to the wall, should be out of the way for my wife and out of reach for my son. It's made from a 17" x 23" whiteboard (Good for tallying season totals as we go! See upper right hand corner...) with a thin plywood backing for strength and composite board rounds cut in half with astroturf on top. I may make one more adjustment before it actually goes up on the wall but I'm pleased with it so far. I'm really looking forward to it being occupied...

Hello, sorry for posting off the topic, but I'm a reporter in Miami who is looking for an expert falconer to do a story on the sport.

Anyone in South Florida?

Hi Buster,

I've passed your info on to falconers I know in FL. Hopefully they'll get in contact with you.

Isaac,

I like that idea for the combo backboard/tally sheet. That's creative and functional!

Could use a section to chart weight loss, too...

Thanks Matt,

I'd thought of doing something with weight as well. The only problem is, it's not that big so a chart isn't really feasible. But maybe a running week or details about conditions on a kill? Many possibilities for sure! We'll see how it goes. 29 days...
