CorJo Wildlife Productions, Western Sporting, 2006, 30 minutes.
In the U.S.A., eagle falconry is gaining popularity. More golden eagles are coming into the hands of falconers due to depredation permits. They are fast, powerful raptors that can generally fly down anything in the field. This video gives the viewer a rare glimpse into the world of hunting with golden eagles. Eagle falconer, Joe Atkinson, shows us how powerful golden eagles are as they hunt jack rabbits off the fist. His eagle is really "in the groove" and we know that advanced training films will be coming in the future. Put one experienced falconer and one experienced eagle in the field and you can see just how capable the golden eagle can be.
