Kahikinui Forest Reserve (Papa'anui Tract)
Kahikinui Forest Reserve is located on the south side of Maui spread across the districts of Hāna and Makawao. The reserve was first designated on December 22, 1928 by Governorʻs Proclamation, and currently consists of approximately 2,916 acres. The reserve used to encompass a large contiguous landscape, but after significant withdrawals of land it is now composed of two separate tracts located within the ahupua‘a of Papa‘anui (713 acres) and Nakula (2,202 acres).
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.
