hawaiin hunting revisited

I finally got my wife to agree that maybe a short vacation to Hawaii with me sneaking off for a day to hunt is not such a bad idea. I know someone on here was planning to go this year but I lost track of who it was.

Any advice on the oppotunities would be appreciated Just thinking hogs or goats on the low end of the price scale.

Guided I'm sure because of the short time and lack of knowledge.

Thanks guys. Thinking next year not this one.

Hunting, for sure!

If I were going to Hawaii (and I have no such plans), it would certainly have to include, if not be mainly for hunting. I really have no desire to walk around and look at sandy beaches - much less lie on them covered with sunscreen!

There is some really good hunting to be had there, and I think I would definitely be after one of those black goats.

Best of luck when and if you go. Be sure to take lots of pictures and share your story when you return.

Honestly I'm not crazy about

Honestly I'm not crazy about it either as I think all vacations should be for hunting but I need to make her happy too and being Filipino she loves the ocean. And I would far rather go to Hawaii than over to the Phillipines.

Hawaii

Right now I have 1 to 4 feet of snow around my house.  Those warm, sandy Hawaiian beaches sound real good.

My girlfriend and I have vacationed there almost every year for the past 10 years.  We've been to 5 of the islands, and to 3 of the islands multiple times.  They have been great vacations, especially when Montana is white.  I've not hunted in Hawaii yet, but I'm hoping to on our next trip.

I think all of the islands have some kind of hunting, and they have a variety of species to hunt.  Do a Google search on "Hawaii hunting."  The state sets the seasons on public land and they vary by island and species.  Some species can be hunted year around.  I think it's just about all free range, with some DIY opportunities, but to be successful on a short hunt it's probably wise to hire a guide.

For example, the Parker Ranch on the Big Island is 135,000 acres with goats, sheep, pigs, turkeys, and pheasants, and they cater to hunters.  I've seen a couple of shows on the Outdoor channels on hunts there.
