Hunting in Hawaii: 3 Animals To Hunt in the Fall

By    |   Monday, 25 May 2015 07:28 PM

Hunting in Hawaii in the fall offers some of the best opportunities for bagging everything from birds to big game.

Depending on the animal, the state may require you to not only have a valid Hawaii hunting license but also apply for a permit to participate in a scheduled hunt for that species.

Others operate on a lottery basis, meaning only a certain number of hunters are allowed to take part in each hunt. Consult the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources before planning your next Hawaii hunting trip to confirm which species are in season and legally open for hunting.

Hunting grounds are labeled by zone, and each is governed by its own rules. Just because an animal is legal to hunt in one area doesn’t mean it’s legal to hunt in another area at the same or using the same methods.

If you prefer hunting in Hawaii during the brisk fall months, consider the following animals, according to the state’s Department of Land and Natural Resources:

1. Game Birds
Hunting season for game birds begins in early November and ends in mid-January. Some public hunting grounds are open for hunting during this entire window and allow hunters to use a variety of methods. Some, however, are only open for archery and not for hunting with the use of a gun. Normal hunting days on both private and public lands are Saturdays, Sundays, and state holidays.

2. Lanai Axis Deer
This hunting season begins in October and includes an archery-only hunt, a muzzle-loading hunt, and a general rifle hunt. You must apply for the specific hunt you want to participate in, DLNR reports. For the archery hunt, you can bag two deer per day, one doe and another one either male or female.

3. Black-Tailed Deer
You can hunt this animal during September or October depending on the location. In some hunting areas you’re allowed to bag one antlered deer per season. However, you’re prohibited from hunting, killing, or owning a deer with antlers measuring less than 3 inches.

In other areas you can bag one deer of either sex per season. Authorized hunting methods also vary by location. In some, only archery is permitted, while in others you can use firearms.
