PTA to open Keamuku for bow hunting this weekend
Army officials are opening the Keamuku Training Area at Pohakuloa Training Area for bow hunting on Saturday and Sunday, from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Hunters are allowed one pig, one goat and one sheep, per day, in keeping with state bag limits, according to the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii. Shooting sheep with blue collars is not permitted.
All hunters must check in and out at one of the following hunter’s check-in stations: Kilohana, located on Saddle Road between mile markers 43 and 44; Puu Huluhulu, located at the intersection of Mauna Kea Access and Saddle roads near mile marker 28; or Puuanahulu, located on Mamalahoa Highway across from mile marker 15.
Checkout time is no later than 7:30 p.m. each day.
Hunting passes will be provided at the check-in stations beginning Friday after 5 p.m. These passes must be signed and placed on the vehicle’s dashboard. Hunters who do not have a signed hunting pass on their dashboard will be barred from hunting for 30 days.
Hunter access to Keamuku is through gates 11 and 14 on Mamalahoa Highway.
Firearms, alcoholic beverages, all-terrain vehicles, dirt bikes and/or recreational vehicles are not allowed in the training and hunting areas.
