This net is a Northwest Avian Specialty exclusive. We designed it specifically with birds in mind. Built with a flexible hoop and leather padded collar, it dramatically decreases the injury potential that exists when netting birds with conventional hard-hoop nets. Net hoop measures 23.5 wide x 24 long. The 53.5 inch aluminum handle is light, and just the right length to allow for good mobility without sacrificing too much reach. A very deep 42" net bag provides ample room to get large birds fully within the bag, and extricate them with relative ease. Take your husbandry or research kit to the next level. Also works as a "Y" pole with hoop/net removed. Now accepting preorders for 2021 delivery.
