Not sure there will be a huge interest but I have had a few guys ask about slip on hoods for their red tails. I pulled out some old patterns Dennis Maynes gave me and found this unique one and I have been working on them for a few weeks now. What is neat about this hood is that the chin area under the beak has for lack of a better word has a working 'Hinge". It should allow for a better fit and the key is that is slightly flexible which will enable the falconer to easily slip on the hood or slip off.
I hope to have at least one with me at the NAFA Meet to see how it works and what other changes maybe needed. I am on my 10th prototype hood at the moment with a larger beak opening..
