DescriptionArab-style Pigeon Hawk Trapping Harness
Our Arabian Gulf friends have come up with a very lightweight pigeon harness for hawk and falcon trapping. This easy to set-up harness has the nooses already tied to the frame and we have rigged it with a drag line and jesses for the pigeons legs.
The harness is attached to the pigeon by putting the two woven drawstrings of the harness under the pigeon's wing and cinching them snug.
There is an attachment point on the back of the harness for a drag weight. The drag weight can be tied to the pigeon harness or to the pigeon with jesses on the legs. This type of harness allows the pigeon to be very free to move around and attract a hawk's attention.
Every falconer should have a few of these around during the trapping season.
