There is a hood generator on the internet, but I dont have time to find it . Maybe someone one here will be able to help. I'll check back tonight and if not I'll find it for you.

this is where the hood pattern program for both Indian and Dutch hoods are located. what you WILL need too know it the measurement across the birds head and just behind the eyes, in mm's to get it make a pattern for you. i have used the Indian hood pattern, but not the Dutch. good luck.

A while back there was a pattern in one of the Hawk Chalks that I wrote a program to generate. I have never actually tried making a hood from the pattern but would be interested to know if it works. If you would like to give it a try you can download it here (http://www.thesings.net/falconry/software/hoodpattern/setup.exe). If you do try making a hood from the pattern, please post a picture.

Note: This program will only run a Windows base machine and was written during the WindowsXP time so I'm not sure it will run on Windows Vista or Windows 7 but my guess is it probably will.

Hello, the patterns from the slijper hood generator do needs a small correction-modification in the sewning borders for to match well the both sides together, because the rear sewning borders are more largers than the frontal sewning borders.

Once made this modification to its pattern, so the new modified pattern will be excellent.

Despite of this, the program is wonderful just as it is, many many thanks for this software program to his own inventor !!

hey Dan, 'puters are in in fact wonderful. i have made many Indian hoods from the program for trapping and general use and they all work out really well.

Mark, thanks for sharing that program. i saved to my PC for use in the future!

Hey Mark... I think I know the article you're talking about. Is that the article Gaylen Gerrish in PA wrote? He had a formula and instructions for drawing out the pattern with a compass and ruler... pretty cool. I followed his instructions to make the pattern by hand on paper, and then was messing around with a simple CAD drawing program on the computer to scale it up and down. Very cool of you to make up the program and share w/ everyone! Thanks.

Yes that is the article. I did it as practice app to brush up on working working with graphics in Visual Basic but never got around to trying to put one of the hood together.

Mark,
It's been ages since I've made a hood. When I saw this post I downloaded your program and tried it with a piece of paper....pretty neat. I have Windows Vista and it worked fine. I wanted to ask though, where does your measurement come from? It's no prob. converting mm to cm and cm to inch, but how do measurements convert to hood sizes?
ie) 2 inches entered into the program = size X hood
Is the measurement (to be entered) from the widest part of the hawk's head?
Thanks
Leah

That should be in the help file but if I remember correctly the measurement is the distance accross the head just behind the eyes.
