You need to know someone from one of the ranches in order to hunt Axis deer on Maui. Thats a connection that everyone dreams of. I am not to sure about the hunting on Molokai, but i'm fairly sure it's the same. The only thing That I can recomend is that you sign up for the Lanai Axis Deer lottery this Year. The tags are out as we speak. I am not sure of when the deadline is, But there are some trophys out there. The Largest I saw this year when I was hunting for Mouflon was about 26"-28". To me that is a trophy because the largest Buck I currently have is a 26" that I shot on Lanai about 10 years ago on a pay hunt. Good luck on your quest!
Good luck on your hunt for Axis Deer, I saw a nice one near the rubbish dump this past Mouflon season. I heard that there are alot of nice bucks out there this year, hopefully you can find one of them!
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
