Hunting in Hawaii--planning my honeymoon in May!

I'm planning the honeymoon (getting married in May!) and we're probably going to Hawaii. My plans, aside from the obvious honeymoon activities, are to learn how to surf and get in a little hunting. I'm thinking boar, but I really don't know what opportunities are available, the costs, problems with shipping anything back etc...never been on a guided hunt before either. Anyhow, if anyone has any experience or knowledge that might help I'd appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.

Matt Roth

P.S. I own several bows and .308winnie.

    You're going on a honeymoon you probably won't be dressed long enough to go hunting

    Matt- If you dont mind my asking what Island(s) are you planning to visit. If you plan to visit Oahu you are more than welcome to hunt Boar with us although we hunt them with Dog and Knife so its the complete opposite to long range hunting its extreme close range hunting [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Aloha!!!

    She wants a day at the Spa--think I'd rather be hunting myself....we have an arrangement. She thinks I'm crazy, but when in Rome--hunt boar!

    Besides we may get caught in the Spa... so I'll just give her her privacy and take a day to go hunting.

    We're planning a two-island trip. First three days on Maui and the second half in Kauwai. Is there a ferry from Kauai to Oahu? I might be able to take a day trip over to Oahu if the offer stands...but I think I'll have to buy a bigger knife [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Any bow action? My longbow throws a pretty heavy arrow enough to stop a boar IMO.

    Matt

    BTW the hunt may just be a day of rest for me... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    MattR,
    Was there in maui 2 years ago but was unfortunate timing on my part for hunting. I went in November with my bride and the axis deer were losing there antlers. They told me late spring and on is better. Could have done a hog though. Very reasonable $600. They have rifles at the ranch you could use free of charge and shoot the rifle before going afield (308, 30-06, 270). I just looked in the yellow pages when I was there and called them. They seemed very accomodating, although I did not hunt. I think this is their web site. http://www.mauideerhunting.com/ We stayed in Napele Point?? We rented a house on Turtle Cove. Wish I could go agian. Good luck hunting. God bless you both in long happy life together. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Well I can't tell you about any hunting on Maui but I got married on Makena Surf beach in Maui. Congrats on the wedding and have a blast in MAui, it is a beautiful place
