Puʻu Waʻawaʻa Forest Reserve



On January 25, 2002 the Board of Land and Natural Resources transferred responsibility for State managed lands within the ahupua‘a of Pu‘u Wa‘awa‘a from the Land Division to the Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW). These lands represent a remarkable diversity of historical, natural, cultural and recreational resources: archaeological and cultural sites, a rich history of ancient and contemporary human use, livestock grazing and hunting.The Reserve is public land, managed by DOFAW, and consists of approximately 37,600 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.
