Hawking In the Old Days
Falconry, or hawking, was a favorite
sport with the nobility and gentry of
Europe down to the first half of the
seventeenth century. Hawks were
trained to mount and pursue game and
bring it to their masters and mistresses,
coming and going to the call of the
latter with marvelous docility. The
hawks were tricked dut with gay hoods
and held until ordered to pursue the
quarry, or game, by leathern straps
fastened with rings of leather about
each leg just above the talons, and
with silken cords called "jesses" to
e/ch of these leathern straps, or "bo
wels." was attached a small bell. In
ibe flight of hawks it was often so
arranged that the bells made "a con
sort of sweet sounds."
