Pohakuloa Training Area will open several areas to bow hunting on Saturday and Sunday.
Training Areas 1, 2, 4, 10 and 11 will be open for mammal hunting between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. No early access to hunting areas is permitted. Hunters must check out by 7 p.m. each day.
All hunters must check in and check out at either the Kilohana Hunter’s Check-in Station located between the 43- and 44-mile markers on Saddle Road or the Huluhulu Hunter’s Check in Station located at the intersection of Mauna Kea Access Road and Saddle Road — near the 28-mile marker.
Hunting passes will be available at both check-in stations today after 5 p.m. Please place the pass on your vehicle dashboard when hunting. Hunting passes are only valid for Saturday and Sunday.
No firearms, alcoholic beverages, all-terrain vehicles, dirt bikes or recreational vehicles are allowed in the training and hunting areas. Please close all gates when entering or leaving hunting areas.
