Re: Honolulu hunting trip

Here is what's available on Oahu.
http://www.state.hi.us/dlnr/dofaw/hunting/oahmammregs.html

But I have to tell you the terrain the pigs and goats live in is very steep with extremely dense vegetation. Access is difficult to find and some access is via military bases, so you would need an "in" to get on base.

My husband and I were on Oahu this past November, but did not hunt. We explored areas that have pigs, but did not see any. We did read that Hawaii would like to rid the islands of pigs and supposedly they have a very large wild population.

Personally if I was to hunt in Hawaii, I would choose a more remote island with a larger variety of game to hunt, and a lot less people to deal with.

For places to hunt, I would check out the ranches on Oahu.

I was in Ohau 4 years ago on

I was in Ohau 4 years ago on vacation for a week and never gave a thought to hunting there until I read these post here but you can bet I will the next time I go even for the memory of it. I'm wondering if the hunting there would be better on the big island? I'll have to check that out. Seems like around the Dole plantation they would have a problem with wild pigs. Anyway, Thank you for posting this.

exciting

I have only been to Oahu once and didn't know what they had back then.  I don't think my wife would have been too excited about me running off on some hunting trip back then. 

I have heard they have some pretty exciting hog hunts.  If you are up for it, they will take you out with dogs and let you kill the hog with a knife.  You wait till the dogs catch and hold the hog, you slip in and stab the pig in the back of the neck.  How's that for exciting!!

I would love to do that sometime.  I hear the terrain is very steep and the vegetation is extremely thick.  You can book a hunt and they will pretty much get you a hog.  But what would you do with it once you got it?  Would you bring the meat home with you?  Would you keep the hide for a mount?

It sounds like a lot of fun.  I hope it works out for you.  Your husband is a lucky dude.

I dont think I'd be that

I dont think I'd be that adventurous to stab the pig. I can clean about anything but I tried raising a pig once and had the hardest time when it came time to butcher it if you know what I mean. I would love to try the pig hunting there though. I wonder what they feed on? Pinapples maybe?,lol Taro root. I tried poi while I was there, wasn't one of my favorite foods.

makes ya wonder

I wonder if the pigs are as big as some of the local population??  Maybe if the pigs eat poi like they do, they'd be that big too.?  I have never gotten into the poi.  I love most foods but I haven't catagorized poi as a food yet.  But I sure love the pork.

I would love to try the hog huntin over there.  My biggest problem is that I would love to try the hunting anywhere.

LOL, I agree with you Arrow

LOL, I agree with you Arrow on hunting anywhere. The Poi was absolutely bland, very bland with a taste you had to have a liking for I guess. Made from the taro root it's kinda like eating............... ummm, I have nothing to compare it to,LOL

Hawaii & poi

To me poi tasted like very bland mashed potatoes. I figured some butter and lots of gravy would fix it right up! Thumbs up And most certainly would go well with their fantastic pork!
