Up close and personal with raptors (VIDEO)

Raptors Up Close is an organization dedicated to educating the public about the fascinating world of raptors. They specialize in customized programs tailored to the needs of your individual organization. These programs illustrate the many aspects of raptors, the different species, biology, predation of prey, the ancient sport of falconry, and raptors relationship to man in the past and in the present.

They had six raptors on display at the Great American Outdoor Show as well as live demonstrations of their exceptional hunting capabilities.

Guns.com caught up with Jason Caldwell, who runs Raptors Up Close with his father, to tell us a little bit more about his organization and some of the beautiful raptors he brought with him.
