gentleman in elko county who was caught with these raptor feathers. according to n-dow, mcivor told them he was keeping the parts for religious celebrations. while that is legal, mcivor or any other native american who uses raptor parts or feathers for ceremonies must have a permit from the u-s fish and wildlife. law enforcement said he did not. the program called, the national eagle repository, was set up in the early 19-70s, and collects, inventories and distributes raptor feathers to native americans who apply and gain access to the program. mcivor faces seven counts on state charges, all of them misdemenors. other states may become involved depending upon where the birds came from. and if federal agencies take the case there could be felony charges for mcivor. n- dow says raptor parts and feathers can make their way to the black market. in this case the estimated worth is ten thousand dollars. in reno, terri russell kolo 8 news now. in about 5 months.. the
