Here's a link to the trip up the Na Pali Coast Steve Hohensee and I did a few years ago.

Going to Kauai in January for our 20th anniversary. Doubt if the wife will let me hunt, but is there someplace we could fling a few arrows?

Hey Doug....thanks for posting that link to your old story. Good stuff. Wife and I did that that trip back in the 90's and it was a blast. Sadly no bows were taken. It was before I discovered them. We were out there for about 9 days and boy did we meet some interesting folks ... and the lack of clothing on some of the ladies was not a problem (for me at least). We were in a bit of the off season so it wasn't too crowded and the beaches were clean. Met a large naked ex flute player for the Boston Philharmonic that would go up into the jungle to his hidden bamboo patches and make flutes to sell for his beer and pizza money. I guess he would hike out every now and then for a snack. Met a huge group of beach dwellers and surfers from the Islands that had all met there to celebrate one of their birthdays. A couple of them hiked into the jungle and took a goat with a spear and we all ate it at a feast that night. Sadly, one afternoon a couple guys from that group went too far out in the water. The rip tides and undertows that time of year are pretty serious. One of them didn't make it back to the beach. We looked for him for quite a while before we were able to get a passing Coast Guard helicopter to finally stop by writing a huge SOS in the sand. They searched for him for 3 days....never found a body. Put a damper on the mood of the party to say the least. Pretty sad. Gotta respect Mother Nature or accept the consequences.
Amazing place. A lot of history has been through that jungle. Thanks for bringing back some memories.

This forum is perfect timing! Thank you Ryan! My wife and I are thinking about Kauai for our 20th anniversary next year (Sorry Glenn...My wife will let me hunt ; ) In fact, I had a long conversation with Mike Vines yesterday about his visit there with his family, and his hunting experiences. If we settle on Kauai, I'll be asking a ton of questions. The place truly looks like paradise.

Either one.

Paul- She probably would if I pressed her enough, but this might be our only trip there and I want to keep her for at least another twenty years [bigsmyl] She doesn't question any hunting trips here so this trip will be strictly a vacation.

Glenn, as far as I know, Kauai doesn't have a public archery range. You could "stump" in one of the "open" hunting areas. Here's the info on the pubic land hunting areas.

Thanks Paul!
This forum will be a team effort. I live on Oahu and primarily hunt public land. Although I do hunt the outer islands, I've still got lots to learn myself. Some of the TG members have more info then myself and I'm thrilled that they are "chiming" in.
Hopefully together, we can build a great resource.

Aloha!
Ryan

Thanks Ryan.

One more question for the mainlanders that have gone to Hawaii and taken game. Were you able to get the meat home or did you do something with it there?

Drove up into the grand canyon of Kauai, I still can't pronounce any of the words over here .

Saw some public hunting areas over here .The country is steeper than home .

Amazing country , may be back to hunt . By accident met a guy who invited me back to hunt some ranches with him .

Go if you get a chance !

My wife and I usually have three, week-long times that we can choose from to take a vacation every year; they are in: mid-February, early-April and early July. For those of you very familiar with Kauai, which week would you choose given the above choices, and why? Having never been there, I'm wondering if there are any pros or cons associated with those time periods, in regards to hunting and in general (weather, bugs, fruit in season, whatever.) I'd appreciate any insights and advice. Thanks!
