U.S. Army’s Pōhakuloa Training Area on Big island hosting hunts for upland game birds
The U.S. Army Garrison Pōhakuloa Training Area will be hosting an upland game bird hunt in the Keamuku Maneuver Area 1, 2 and 3 hunting units.
The two hunts will be on the weekends of Jan. 14 and 15, and Jan. 21 and 22, from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
However, allowable harvest in the Keamuku Maneuver Area (KMA) 2 and 3 hunting units
will be only California quail, pheasant and wild turkey, with standard Hawai’i State daily
bag limits for those species.
Harvest restrictions are in place due to ongoing research in the KMA 2 and 3 units about Erckel’s francolin (plump, partridge-like birds).
The training area is located on the high plateau between Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and the Hualālai volcanic mountains.
