Texas Hawking Association President Scott Coleman holds his two year old falcon, Madison, at the group's 2018 Field Meet held in Abilene January 12-14.

Each January during the peak of duck and quail hunting season, dozens of falconers descend on central Texas to share hawking stories and meet other falconers from across Texas and other states as far as Oregon. The Texas Hawking Association annual field meet in Abilene is the third largest meeting of raptor owners in the country. KACU’s Haley Remenar has the story.
