Rickey, I am the person that gave your that Eagle Feather at the Concert in Wendover Nevada. Just wondering if you have it hanging up in your Tee Pee.

Are you kidding? For one it is doubtful Rickey even bothers to read this forum. And for two Rickey lives in a condominium. A teepee? For real? I hope that is not what Rickey told you? If so he was only kidding. And for three do you know how much stuff fans give band members? And do you really think they keep it all? I can tell you they don't.

Also last I checked possession of any eagle parts- let me be specific- bald eagle parts is a federal felony that can get you a stretch visit in a federal prison. Things may be different for Native Americans, but for most Americans it is a crime to even touch a bald eagle:

(I did notice you did not say bald eagle but if it was...)

Bald eagle Law

The bald eagle will continue to be protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act even though it has been delisted under the Endangered Species Act. This law, originally passed in 1940, provides for the protection of the bald eagle and the golden eagle (as amended in 1962) by prohibiting the take, possession, sale, purchase, barter, offer to sell, purchase or barter, transport, export or import, of any bald or golden eagle, alive or dead, including any part, nest, or egg, unless allowed by permit (16 U.S.C. 668(a); 50 CFR 22). "Take" includes pursue, shoot, shoot at, poison, wound, kill, capture, trap, collect, molest or disturb (16 U.S.C. 668c; 50 CFR 22.3). The 1972 amendments increased civil penalties for violating provisions of the Act to a maximum fine of $5,000 or one year imprisonment with $10,000 or not more than two years in prison for a second conviction. Felony convictions carry a maximum fine of $250,000 or two years of imprisonment. The fine doubles for an organization. Rewards are provided for information leading to arrest and conviction for violation of the Act.

Hmmmm... there is a reward for arrest and conviction! Just so you know...
