The Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Southeastern Raptor Center will be holding a series of online auctions for the auctioning custom jesses, cuffs worn around the eagle’s ankles and straps, and the lure, used to entice the eagle to land midfield. These hand-crafted Auburn items are made by volunteers, and used one time – during the Auburn eagle’s pre-game flight.

The first lure being auctioned is from the Auburn versus San Jose State game began Monday, Nov. 17, at 8 a.m. CST and will end Nov. 20. The starting bid for non-SEC game lures, including San Jose State, is $200, while SEC games will start at $500. Acceptable payments for the winning bid include personal checks, business checks and credit cards. To bid, go to and search for Auburn lure. Money raised by the auction will benefit the Southeastern Raptor Center with its mission of education, rehabilitation, and conservation for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
