Hi my name is Joy and I am interested in falconry - or owlery (?)

Is there anyone in GA who keeps owls? I was just wondering, and I'm not getting a falcon, hawk, or owl until I have the resources (mews, separate freezer for training mice and rats, land that I can fly it on etc.) and contacts for everything and everyone needed (i.e. Veterinarians, food supply stores, etc.). I'm really probably going to wait to get my bird after I graduate vet school -I'm going to specialize in exotics that many people avoid; like herpatiles, birds (including raptors and wild birds) and wildlife.- but I am wondering if there is anyone near Skidaway Island, or South-East Georgia who is willing to apprentice me?
