View Full Version : Any equipment

I need any cheap equipment, used or not used it does not matter. Also if someone has a single hood block I will try to buy it. And I really need a red tail size perch if anyone kind enough will put one up for me. Anything is greatly appreciated. Thanks.....

Vivien, there is a great "Do it Yourself" section on here that you should take a look at. Some great tips to making some of your own equipment.

Alright thanks!!!! I've already tried making hoods (Anglo Indian and some Khan style) but they don't turn out so well. I bought a hood from davidsons falconry (Dutch style) and I'm hoping to get some squirrel chaps too. I'm also saving up for the construction of my mews (which is a lot!!!) I'm learning how to make jesses and how to make braided leashes. I'm also trying to make a trap (bal tratri?) out of some wire, a bike wheel and plastic things. Oh, and while I'm at it I have a book called Falconry and Hawking coming in the mail tomorrow. I'm now almost set on books because I got lots of falconry and raptor books for Christmas. Basically all I need is gear. But I do need to save up for all the management costs. Then again I forgot you have to pay for licences and extra fees. And the apprentice course at west coast falconry will run me a couple hundred dollars. Oh and while I'm at it I should get a cup of coffee for my mom.
