  • Hand painted imitation hawk feathers

    Does anyone have a good recommendation for a source for hand painted imitation red tail hawk feathers I want to make a new wing fan for my gourd dance regalia. I have contacted 3 listings on the internet but none of them return e-mails or answer their phones.

    Have you tried Crazy Crow , Noc Bay , or any of the other supply stores ? They have them. Most of the members I know on here are using REAL feathers and not any kind of painted ones. Good luck !
    I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !

    They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

    There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

    Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
    It's not me....I think you're an idiot !


    There's a chance you might not like me ,

    but there's a bigger

    chance I won't care

      Looks like I will probably end up with Crazy Crow. Only reason I am going with imitation is I live in Alabama and Fish and Game is like seize first and not bother with questions. I am trying to avoid a lot of the hassle especially in southern states

          Because it is nearly impossible to prove provenance. Somebody could almost as easily shoot a bald eagle in a rural area, pull feathers, and claim that they “found” them. It is the same reason some species that are actually very common are protected through CITES.
