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.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
