Hawai‘i Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Hunter Education Program. PC: DLNR.

Effective June 15, the DLNR will begin issuing hunting licenses and stamps for the new hunting season that runs from July 1 through June 30, 2023.

DLNR’s Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) offices are open, but hunters are to purchase their hunting licenses and stamps online. The online purchasing portal is available by visiting the Hunting homepage and clicking “Purchase Tags and Pemits.”

A valid State of Hawaiʻi hunting license is required for hunting on public and private lands. Rule chapters and other hunting information are available on the DOFAW website.

Hunters are encouraged to use the OuterSpatial mobile application for electronic hunter check-in and check-out. Please make sure that the application is fully downloaded to your mobile device before entering the field to eliminate slow download speeds or “no service” areas.
