Bow hunting at PTA this weekend
Army officials are opening several training areas for bow hunting at Pohakuloa Training Area on Saturday and Sunday from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Training areas 1-4 and 9-15 will be open for bow hunting of mammals only. Hunters are allowed one pig, one goat and one sheep, per day, in keeping with state bag limits. Shooting sheep with blue collars is not permitted.
All hunters must check in and check out at one of the following hunters’ check-in stations: Kilohana, located on Saddle Road between mile markers 43 and 44; or Pu’u Huluhulu, located at the intersection of Mauna Kea Access Road and Saddle Road near mile marker 28. Check out time is no later than 7:30 p.m. each day.
Hunting passes will be provided at the check-in stations beginning Friday after 5 p.m.
These passes must be signed and placed on the vehicle’s dashboard. Hunters who do not have a signed hunting pass on their dashboard will be barred from hunting for 30 days.
Hunter access to training areas 1-4 is through any of gates 1-10 on Saddle Road. Hunter access to training areas 9-15 is through the gate located at mile marker 38.5, south of West Saddle Road.
Military convoys will be traveling on Old Saddle Road, so hunters are asked to drive on New Saddle Road.
Firearms, alcoholic beverages, all-terrain vehicles, dirt bikes and/or recreational vehicles are not allowed in the training and hunting areas.
