In-Stock Hoods: The hood is in-stock if the hood size number is seen in the pull down window above.
Exclusive USA sales outlet for hoods actually made by Steve Tait.
Steve Tait has agreed to make a second type of hood for Western Sporting. This hood is for the discerning falconer who wants an extreme lightweight hood with an Arab-backed closure. They are also fitted with quality black nylon cloth braces. The Tait Arab-backed Hood, like our Tait field hood, is actually a new pattern and molded on a new block quite different from those available at other locations.
They are limited to the sizes listed in the chart. If the size is not available in the pull-down window then it is simply out-of-stock and we do not take custom orders for those sizes. Any size missing from the pull-down window is on order and should arrive shortly. Please check back from time to time if you do not see the size needed.

Note on Fitting Hoods:
You will not find a more exact and wide-ranging hood chart anywhere on the internet. We have done everything possible to come up with a chart for sizing your individual hawk, but no two hawks are exactly the same and some will simply be difficult to fit. Sometimes it may take one or two fittings to get just the right hood.
Hoods Return & Exchange Policy:
We are willing to exchange hoods if they do not fit properly but they must be returned to us in an as-new resalable condition. We will not accept returns if your dog chews it, your hawk scratches it, you stuff it in a box for the return trip that is too small, there is meat caked in it, or any other conceivable abuse that results in Western Sporting not being able to sell it “as-new” upon return. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
