I have ordered from Brad at northwoods for 2 years now. They have excellent quality items, and from my experiance try in every way possible to make you happy. Everything has been as pictured on their site, and has been extremely high quailty. They may not be the cheapest, but when i need equipment they are the first people i turn to! I recommend highly recommend them.
I agree they're not the cheapest, but I recently bought North American Falcons & Hunting Hawks and got a smooth transaction. I am also currently buying The Red-Tailed Hawk and am having another smooth transaction. I highly recommend Northwoods
My son got a glove for me for Christmas. It was from Northwoods. It's a great glove! good leather, nice design... beautiful! If not for that gift, i'd still be using my welders glove. Zach said he had a good experience with Northwoods, too. This glove is a quality item. Zach paid a quality price. Those things usually go together. Nothwoods has some items that Mike's doesn't have and vice versa. I think the two companies compliment each other well. I get speacialty items that i can't get at Mike's or can't make from Northwoods.
I bought several of those, then my friends found out i used them. They started giving me their old dirty ones (they're so cheap, it's easier to throw it away and get another one than it is to clean it, i suppose). A little soap and water... maybe a short bleach bath, and they were as good as new! No sense spending $6.00 a sq ft for astroturf when these little items are available.
I have (twice now ) made orders through Northwoods that have been delayed or not shipped at all! I'm getting tired of having to call them to find out what happened. I made the last order about 1 1/2 months ago and it didn't show up after two weeks so I called them and they said they never received an order? I did it online. So, as I spoke with her I re-did the order and sent it to her. This was three weeks ago.....still no order
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines "Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day; give him a religion................ and he'll starve to death while praying for a fish."
I had the same experience. I ordered some books from them and it took for ever to receive them. I wasn't notified that one of the books was backordered. I merely assumed that I wouldn't get it so I ordered it from "Mike's". That was over three months ago. Now I have two copies of that book

I've bought bells, jesses, and some books from NorthWoods. Real quality, quick shipping. Like everyone's saying -- not cheap. Out here in Idaho, some of the more traditional (read: redneck) falconers harbor some resentment for big ourfitters like NorthWoods. They figure, if you can't make it yourself, your bird doesn't need it. I see it as a testament to good treatment if a falconer takes pride enough in the lifestyle to ensure quality for his birds.
i'm about to give up on northwoods. first of all, they screwed up my last order (i order a dvd, they send me a book). last week i ordered a video using my debit card. i had plenty of money in my checking account at that time. well, they just got around to shipping it today, but now i'm broke, and my card was declined. i told the woman who called that i had plenty of money at the time of order, but she just told me how busy they were, and they hadn't gotten around to actually charging me yet. anyway, i'm pissed. my order won't go out until mon. now, and i was expecting it to come today.
oh yeah, we have recieved two deffective transmitters from them this year.
I do as LITTLE business with them as possible. I have researched thier gear and EVERYWHERE ELSE it is cheaper. Check thier book and video prices against western sporting publications and you will find WSP is cheaper.
The only things i think im going to HAVE to buy from them are grommits, grommit setters and leather.
Personally i avoid them at all costs. They are so damn expensive, and its purely mark up.
