    My opinion is that you would be better off with either an imprint taken younger or a parent reared bird raised to near hard penning. The in between hawks have the negative traits of both. My preference is the parent reared, but many do well with an imprint. The older eyas is going to have some of the fear of a parent reared bird and often requires some tighter wt. control to overcome this. Then the imprint behaviors, screaming and aggression rear their heads.
