Description

Koʻolau Forest Reserve is located on the windward side of Maui in the districts of Hāna and Makawao. The reserve was first designated on August 24, 1905, by Governorʻs Proclamation and currently consists of approximately 31,104 acres, making it the largest forest reserve on Maui. Koʻolau Forest Reserve covers much of of the forested ridges mauka of the Hāna Highway.

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.
