Bow hunting at PTA this weekend
Pohakuloa Training Area will open the Keamuku Training Area to bow hunting of goats and pigs, Saturday and Sunday.
Check-in time for hunting in the Keamuku is 5 a.m., and hunters must check out by 7:30 p.m. No early access to hunting areas is permitted.
All hunters must check in and check out at one of the following stations: Kilohana Hunter’s Check-in Station located between mile markers 43 and 44 on Saddle Road; Huluhulu Hunter’s Check-in Station located at the intersection of Mauna Kea Access Road and Saddle Road—near Mile Marker 28; or Puanahulu Check-in Station located near Mile Marker 14 on Mamalahoa Highway.
Hunting passes will be available at the check-in stations today after 5 p.m. Hunters should place the pass on their vehicle dashboard. Hunting passes are valid only for Saturday and Sunday.
Hunters should enter and exit the Keamuku through gates 2, 7 and 10 on Saddle Road or gates 11 and 12 on Mamalahoa Highway. The designated parking area is inside the gate entrances. Hunters should not park alongside the highways at any time.
