Hunting in Hawaii: Regulations for Hunting With Dogs

By    |   Monday, 25 May 2015 07:11 PM

A dog is a valuable ally and resource for a hunter, useful to track and retrieve prey. In Hawaii, you’re permitted to take your dog hunting provided you follow state regulations and don’t allow your dog to cause damage, interfere with other hunters, or otherwise create a problem for people or the environment.

Before you take your dog on your next hunting excursion in Hawaii, keep in mind the following tips:

1. You must quarantine your dog if you’re from out of state

In order to prevent the possible spread of diseases like rabies, Hawaii requires visitors to quarantine their dogs upon arrival. According to the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture, your dog might have to spend up to 120 days in quarantine, unless you have a veterinarian certify beforehand that your dog is disease-free and safe to be released into the general public.

In this case, your dog might qualify for five days or fewer in quarantine. Some breeds are not allowed into the state, however. This includes animals, such as wolf mixes and Dingos, that are not considered domestic or that are classified as hybrids.

2. You’re prohibited from using some weapons
The State of Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources says that when hunting with dogs, you’re limited to using specific types of weapons. For example, you can’t hunt with a shotgun loaded with buckshot smaller than 00.

3. You’re liable for your dog’s actions

At the hunting site, you must keep your dog with you at all times and keep it under control any time you’re not actively hunting. Also, you’re responsible for any damages or injuries the dog may cause. Before hunting with your dog, make sure it is well-trained and that you know how to control him in an unpredictable environment, DLNR reports.

4. You can only take your dog to some hunting areas
In its publication “Rules Regulating Game Mammal Hunting,” DLNR included a chart listing the state’s designated hunting areas, and noted which areas that do not allow dogs. Review the chart before you travel to the hunting site to ensure you’re not turned away.
