Bulgaria's hunting tourism is enjoying growing local and international interest, according to participants in the 17th annual "Nature, Hunting, Fishing" Expo in the city of Plovdiv.

A total of 3 992 foreign tourists and 3 761 Bulgarians had hunting tourism trips in Bulgaria in 2010, according to data of the State Forestry Agency, as cited by BTA.

The group hunt of boars is the most sought after hunting tourism attraction in Bulgaria, the data indicates.
