Archery hunting in the Hawai’i Puuanahulu Game Management Area will begin Sunday, March 1 and will continue through Sunday, June 28 on weekends and State holidays, according to the Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry and Wildlife.

Between July and February, the archery season experiences its annual closure in this area. Officials say that season length, bag limits, and hunting areas are all established in Title 13, Chapter 123, “Rules Regulating Game Mammal Hunting.”

The following conditions will apply to participating hunters:

Daily bag limit is one pig of either sex, one male goat and one male sheep per hunter, per day.

Interested hunters must also obtain 2015 billy and ram tags that would allow them to hunt in the area. These tags can be obtained from any Hawai’i Island Division of Forestry and Wildlife office. Tags are free of cost this year.
