Come Fly with Us - A Day in the Life of a Falconer
Donated by: John and Kay Oster
Kay Oster has been a licensed Falconer for 12 years. She flies red-tailed hawks and lately specializes in flying the Harris’s Hawk. She and her faithful game-finding dog, John, will accompany the winning bidder and up to three guests as they experience what it is like to be a falconer.
Event: If the winning party is coming to the area the night before the event, they will be met at the Das Dutchman Essenhaus hotel in Middlebury, Indiana, for breakfast the next morning and will travel to the raptor facility for orientation and presentation of a number of birds of prey. The orientation will include the history of falconry and a briefing on the modern-day sport. You will get to go close-up and personal with various large raptors, including both bald and golden eagles, owls, hawks, and falcons, plus others. The falconers will go into as much detail about the birds and the sport as you desire.
The party will then travel to a hunting area, where (weather permitting), you will follow the handlers as they conduct a hunt for wild game, which would include mice, voles, rabbits, squirrels, and various sundry critters that could run afoul of these magnificent birds. You will hope that skunks are not out and about that day! The number of birds released and the time spent afield will be at the handlers’ discretion, but they will make every effort to make this an unforgettable experience. Their love for their birds and their sport will help make it a “bucket list” event.
Location: Extreme northeast Indiana and extreme southern Michigan. The closest airport is South Bend; the closest city is Elkhart, Indiana; and the closest small town would be Middlebury or Shipshewana, Indiana.
When: This hunt will take place October - December 2018, excluding holiday weekends. If the winner must fly to the event, a firm date will be set and we will hope for cooperative weather so that airline reservations can be made.
If the winner can drive, then the date can be variable, again, dependent upon the weather.
Every attempt will be made to provide the field hunting portion of this package, but the safety of the birds will be the determining factor. It is impossible to predict the weather.
Other: One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to ARAPAC. The Oster’s and their associates will receive no compensation.
Included: Breakfast, transportation to and from the hotel, orientation, briefing, the hunt itself, snacks and beverages while in the field.
Not Included: Transportation and lodging.
Time: Arrival the evening before is recommended. The hunt and all other activities would be concluded by early- to mid-afternoon, adjusted for weather conditions, if/as possible or necessary.
What to Bring: Appropriate hiking attire for the weather at hunt time, including hiking boots. Be sure to have your camera battery charged. You will take tons of photos/videos. The hunting site could include patches of briars and/or heavy/wet brush. Binoculars could come in handy but are not required. Light raingear would be advisable, as well.
Case of Alpha Omega Proprietary Red Napa Valley (2013)
Donated by: Donnie Taylor
Alpha Omega's Proprietary Red is a classic Bordeaux-style blend with a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (62 percent), but also a greater presence of Cabernet Franc (23 percent) than Petit Verdot (eight percent) and Merlot (seven percent). This type of blending tends to make a wine that is denser, with more diversity in its profile. The 2013 red wines are ripe and voluptuous providing the opportunity to produce a Proprietary Red with concentrated aromas and tannins. Alpha Omega is located in legendary Rutherford, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley and is one of Napa's newest boutique wineries.
