New to this online thing.....booking a trip next yearto Maui and want to bow hunt. Is there a list of guides or private individuals that a guy could hunt with? From what I am seeing there is only two outfitters. Any suggestions?
Arrow one ranch and hawaii safaris offer guided hunts on maui. prices are reasonable. If you wanna do a DYI hunt Maui has alot of public land to hunt on. Out of state license runs about 100 bucks no tags required. The hawaii DLNR site may help you out a little. but like all public land hunts scouting is key. if you're straped for time going with a guide may be the way to go.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
