Scott Taylor, President
Scott has been practicing falconry since 2010. Falconry is a family affair in the Taylor household and the majority of their spare time is consumed by falconry related things. Scott is currently flying a cast of Harris Hawks on snowshoe hare and a Cooper's Hawk during the summer months. Scott is an avid big game hunter, using a compound bow for the majority of his hunts. Scott also enjoys fly fishing during the molting months. Scott took on presidency in 2015. His hope for the club is to provide a welcoming place for all members to practice a sport that members are passionate about.
Deone has been practicing falconry since 2011, currently she flies an imprint Prairie Falcon, a tiercel peregrine, and a tiercel hybrid. Deone's first bird was a Harlan's Hawk and she also flew an American Kestrel for 2 seasons. Deone and her family raise pheasants for release, as well as chickens, quail and peafowl. When Deone is not out flying her bird she enjoys fly fishing, camping, and baking.
Troy Johnson, Treasurer
Troy has been an active member of AFA since 2017. Through the fall and winter you will find Troy deep in the bush hunting with his trusty beagle and Red-tailed Hawk. They are enjoying their third season together. This fall he trapped a male American Kestrel and is looking forward to flying him this spring. When not working with his birds Troy enjoys spending time outdoors climbing, hiking or paddling down the river with his family
Phil Trefry, Director
Phil Trefry started falconry as a teenager in British Columbia and has been a member of the AFA since it began. He moved to Alberta in 1971 to being working for the Canadian Wildlife Service at their Peregrine Falcon captive breeding facility. That work is long over but he continues to breed anatum Peregrine Falcons and fly them near Tofield, Alberta, with his wife Helen. He enjoys helping new falconers find the same enjoyment and appreciation of the raptors in the sport as he has been fortunate to enjoy for decades.
Murray Fetzko, Director
Murray joined the AFA in 2018(?) and is an apprentice falconer. He is following the typical path of a new falconer by hunting with a wild caught red tail hawk (Grace). Hawking has created more hunting opportunities without the heavy lifting required for big game. Murray joined the board in 2021.
