Hey all,

After trying to track down multiple people who were interested in books, I finally gave up and still have a few that are left. These books were originally claimed and then the folks that wanted them disappeared. Here's what I have left:

Hoods, Hooding, and Hoodmaking by James West Nelson

North American Falconry and Hunting Hawks by Beebe and Webster (circa 1970 Edition)

Falconry and Hawking by Philip Glasier

Understanding The Bird Of Prey by Nick Fox

Falconry Equipment by Kimsey and Hodge

The Hunting Falcon by Bruce A. Haak

At this point, I am more interested in trades than I am money. Below are the things that I am interested in trading for in order of interest:

Hoods for red-tailed hawks (either sex)
Heavy Kangaroo leather
Buteo-sized perches (both indoor and outdoor)
VHF transmitters (not micro sized)

Please feel free to shoot me a PM if anything strikes your fancy. Obviously I'd prefer a trade but if buying the book is the only offer I get, that's alright too.

Hoods, Hooding, and Hoodmaking as well as the copy of NAFAHH are gone.

There is an offer in on The Hunting Falcon but if someone wants to trade for the above listed items, they get first choice. Otherwise it will be sold Monday.

The rest are still available.
