Two hunting areas will be opened by Army officials at Pohakuloa Training Area over the weekend.

Training areas 1 and 2 will open for bow hunting of mammals only on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.

In keeping with state bag limits, hunters are allowed one pig, one goat, and one sheep per day. Additionally, the shooting of sheep that are tagged with blue collars is not permitted.

Hunters must check-in and check-out at one of the following check-in stations:

Kilohana, located on Saddle Road between mile markers 43 and 44.


Pu’u Huluhulu, located at the intersection of Mauna Kea Access Rad and Saddle Road near mile marker 28.


Check-out at one of the same locations is no later than 7 p.m. each day.

Beginning Friday after 5 p.m., hunting passes can be obtained at one of the check-in stations. Hunters who do not have a signed pass placed on their vehicle’s dashboard will be banned from hunting for 30 days.

Access to training areas 1 and 2 is through any of gates 1-6 on East Saddle Road.


Hunters must park in a designated parking area. Items not allowed in the hunting areas include alcoholic beverages, all-terrain vehicles, dirt bikes, and recreational vehicles.
