    Had a hawk get into my Chukar cage once, he didn't kill anything but after an hour of back and forth trying to net him... did you know it's against the law to kill a raptor...

    I could be wrong, but the only time I was wrong was when I thought I was wrong and it turned out I was right. “If I find an eagle or hawk feather, can I keep it?” The answer is "No." All raptors are protected by state and federal regulations. It is illegal to capture or kill a raptor; possess a raptor (living or dead), or any pieces or parts of raptors, including feathers, without proper permits from state and federal government agencies.

    Unless you happen to be a Native American... They are exempt from the Keeping of Feathers Regulations.....

    Down here in Texas "raptor" is a protected migratory species. The mexican buzzard comes under this act.You CAN get a permit to trap one IF it is attacking your livestock for a 100 bucks last I heard. Around here we use the more common SSS permit on them. But like feral hog when one is "relocated" 3 more show up it seems. Turkey buzzards are a whole different deal and welcomed on anyones land. But the mexican buzzard is pushing them out and taking over. Personally I wish TPTB would just get off their lazy butts and make more narrow definitions of good and bad migratory species.

    I'm "Native American Indian"....
    Go ahead and try to set if free...but if it kills your chickens....it's fair game but you gotta at least TRY to eat it if u kill it. That's what I'd do....seems common sense...
    Even feedin' it to the dogs or pigs counts....my dog gets a lot of wild meat. (year old deer/moose mostly from freezer....she likes it tough. :)
    Feathers illegal? What?

    Just like ivory tusks, you can't buy or sell them now. They outlawed any legal use of the elephant. Protected birds, have protected feathers, to prevent poaching for those same feathers.
