My recently published monograph on the falcon hood, Hoods, Hooding & Hoodmaking, is available through Western Sporting at westernsporting.com. It's a 551 page (6 lbs) treatise on every conceivable aspect of the falcon hood, including itsprobable origins, types of hoods, training methods, and hood construction. After 21 years in the making, it's all in there!
Harry McElroy's newest Desert Hawking series addition, "Desert Hawking IV: Quail" is the tquintessential work on the training and hunting of the aplomado falcon in sport falconry, especially on desert quail. This book is a must for anyone that aspires to train and hunt with this unique and complex raptor.
