DOHA, Sept 23, (KUNA): Kuwaiti hunting and falconry companies took part in the First Katara International Hunting and Falcons Exhibition in Qatar. The 14 Kuwaiti companies are presenting products including hunting rifles and ammunition, camping equipment and items used in raising falcons. The event is an opportunity to promote products, share experience and boost efforts to raise and protect falcons, a number of Kuwaiti participants told KUNA on Saturday.
The Qatari market attracts large numbers of GCC falconers, owner of Kuwaiti falcons research center Hashim Al- Sulaili said. Many falcon owners had switched from hunting to holding competitions for these birds, due to new environmental laws that limited hunting, he added.
On his part, owner of a company which organizes hunting trips Ahmad Al-Azmi noted that his company is aiming to expand its services all over the Gulf states. Katara’s exhibition is a great way for companies to attract more customers, he added.
