RECLAIMING (in Falconry). The calling of a hawk, or bird of prey, back to the fist. The sparrowhawk, the goshawk, &c. are reclaimed with the voice; the falcon only by shaking the lure. So that the term luring, with regard to the falcon, is more proper than reclaiming.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
