    Need a Raptor Hood

    See huberhoods.com, a maker of dutch hoods. There are also inexpensive falconry hoods listed on ebay ($20-$30). Like lasts for shoes, there are forms for making hoods to fit various size birds (many sizes and a few makers of these forms, eg. Tait, Rollins, Slijpers Cannon, each with it's own sizing guidelines for various species) as the hood needs to fit the falcon properly over eyes, beak, etc. A search of 'falconry supplies' is a good place to start.

    Best quality/buy on belt making leather????

    http://doublekleather.com/ carries an extensive line of leathers and products for leather crafters, out of St. Charles, MO. Someone recently told me Kevin is called 'the king of veg'.
  6. Nice work, the fiber structure of goat hides is quite dense and makes leather with excellent tear strength, may be a little harder to work vs similar thickness cowhide, items should hold up very well!

    Italian Hide/Leather Supplier for purses

    OrionCalf.com milled French calf leather might be an option for you. Natural milled (not printed) leathers will have some variation in 'pebble' in different areas of the hide, it's very soft and has a great handfeel.
