Hāmākua Forest Reserve is located on the north side of the island of Hawaiʻi in the district of Hāmākua. The reserve was first designated on December 22, 1928, by Governorʻs Proclamation, and currently consists of approximately 4,355 acres. Hamakua Forest Reserve is currently composed of seven separate sections.
Game mammal and Game bird hunting opportunities are offered on the six major islands in the State of Hawai‘i: (Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, Maui, Moloka‘i, Lana‘i and the big island of Hawai‘i). Each of these islands has one or more State-designated public hunting areas (called Hunting Units), which are open for hunting at certain times during each year. Game mammal and game bird hunting opportunities are also available on private lands as well. Occasionally, the Division of Forestry & Wildlife (DOFAW) may modify or cancel a hunting season in a particular area to adjust for changes in weather conditions or animal populations.
