Hello everyone! Having just passed the Michigan falconry exam with the anticipation of trapping a red tail next fall I decided to order some leather and start practicing a little with tooling so I would be able to decorate some hoods... well the first attempt yielded what I think to be a quite stylish key fob! Let me know what you guys think!

Looks good but there is something wrong with the bird, it has pointy wings! LOL :D

Haha thanks Fred! I have to admit I wish it was a buteo silhouette but being a rookie at leather tooling I went the easy route... ill just have to wait a few years to live up to the key fob! ;)

Well on yer way. Another young man who started falconry the same time I did, worked at Tandy Leather. Wasn't long before I was hanging out, banging leather on a slab of marble myself. Good luck with it, and your falconry- they do seem to go together.
