The Department of Land and Natural Resources reminds the public that the 2012-2013 Game Bird Hunting Season, which began Nov. 3, will run through Jan. 21, with legal hunting days on Saturday, Sunday and state holidays.
Department biologists are predicting a below-average season of bird hunting, with lingering drought impacts in many parts of the state. A valid hunting license is required for all game bird hunting on public and private lands. All game bird hunting is regulated by Hawaii Administrative Rules Title 13, Chapter 122 (see http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/dofaw under “Administrative Rules”).
Hunting of wild turkeys is still prohibited in all public and private hunting areas to allow the population to reach a level suitable for hunting in the future.
