When I asked Adam what kind of music he likes as we were driving to the field, metal was the last thing I expected him to say. As a fellow metal head, I most certainly obliged and blasted tunes all the way there.
Adam is the youngest falconer I’ve ever had the privilege to work with. He was such a fresh breath of air and energy, with a brain that soaked it all up like a sponge. He is a brand spankin new apprentice from Nevada and only 16 years old, he was passionate about learning how to achieve serving vertical stoops from a pitch and absolutely slayed it. Nothing beats being young and spry!
Adam is so very knowledgable and experienced in many things, it was beyond impressive and I learned so very much from him. A passionately dedicated hunter of many species, he is a member of many large hunting organizations and a non-lead advocate. He travels all over the globe meeting with hunting organizations and groups.
His father adventured to Las Vegas from his home in Morocco and became a gymnast in the entertainment industry, where he met Adam’s mother (a fellow falconer!) Nancy Rouas, a California graduate from Moorpark, who still trains incredible animal species to this day.
You’d be hard pressed to find another young man as brilliant, mature, cultured, experienced, intelligent and capable as Adam Rouas and I can’t wait to fly with him again.
