Pineo Falconry began when Doug Pineo started hunting with hawks in the early 1960s.  In 1968, he published his first price list, and made hoods, gauntlets, hawking bags, lures, leashes, and bells for other falconers in America and England.

Doug concentrated on producing hoods from his own blocks and patterns, and today his hoods are known among falconers throughout the world for their fit and craftsmanship.  Through Pineo Falconry, we bring the same commitment to superior quality and continuous design improvement to a growing family of the best falconry furniture available anywhere.

We pursue a strong business and environmental ethic.  Our guides are figures like Aldo Leopold, seminal American conservationist and father of modern wildlife management;  Climber, angler, surfer, ironsmith and 1950s falconer Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia;  Paul Hawken, entrepreneur and author of  The Ecology of Commerce.  We know you share our enthusiasm for game hawking, and hope you’ll join us in our commitment to conservation.

Pineo Falconry donates a minimum of 1% of all sales to ecological restoration and other efforts supporting conservation, and the rich, diverse traditions of angling and the hunt.
