Made entirely in Russia and sent here exclusively for Western Sporting. The designer of this harness pattern has trapped over 1000 Russian goshawks using this trap.
A Russian biologist developed this pigeon harness as he was trapping goshawks for the Zoo Association, the Game Breeding Department of the Central Scientific Research Laboratory of Glavokhota, the Ornithological Department of the Moscow Kremlin and Zooleks, in the 80s and 90s. A trap was needed that could be set quickly whenever a goshawk was at hand to trap. This harness took two years to fully develop despite the simple design. The harness is quite versatile in use and can be used in different settings.
I put this harness on my own pigeons and they move freely and do not act restricted in any way and this is a real bonus when you throw a pigeon out under the intended hawk. The nooses are also very good.
Just add your own drag weight and a lively pigeon and watch it work.
