I'd say April or July, February is still part of our rainy season. It's tough when it's pouring rain in there, river crossings and slippery trails. Additionally if you want to enjoy the beach there still may be a chance of big waves on the North and West facing sides of the island during February.

It was the best hunt i have ever been on ( and i didn't even shoot anything).
Hawken, my wife and i went there in mid July on our honeymoon. The bugs were a non issue ( well at least to me they were, but i have been in norhtern Ontario during black fly season !!) . TRhe weather was awesome every day, with very little rain and LOTS of sun.

Absolutely love this island. By far my favorite. Great for families and outdoor activities. Way more laid-back than the other islands I have been to. My wife and daughter like resorts and the pool. I like being active outdoors. There is great hiking here and goats and pigs to hunt. Primarily the former on public land. So Kauai is an island for all of us to get excited about. Booked a hog hunt through Patrick Fisher, hunting outfitter for all the islands, and for varied game. Had access and guide on a 16,000 acre ranch. Saw lots of pigs. Unlike here in California, hunting there is during evening and night using green flashlights that pigs can't see. Night hunting is not legal in California. Bagged two pigs. Like game in most warm climates, pigs are smaller than here. Hundred pounds is a shooter size there. Their behaviors are different too. Since there are no predators other than people, young pigs run around without their mother. And they don't root up the earth because because food such as mangoes, papayas and avocados lay in abundance on the ground. Great time and loved the guide. Working with a traditional bow hunter was new for him and he was quite excited about it. My wife and I are returning in December. Plan on hunting pigs again and scouting public land on the north part of the island.

Me and my wife will be going in early June and taking our bows! Would primarily be interested in hogs, but goats would be a bonus. Where Doug Campbell and Steve went looked a little to steep for me (afraid of heights). Any help on pointing us in a good direction would be much appreciated! We will be hunting public land.

Sheephunter, for hunting public land, will have to be the very north end of island. Trails are good. But you'll have to pack in to get away from all the foot traffic. Bring hiking sandals as trails are often slippery and up to ankles in mud in places and fording rivers. True rain forest on northern end. For private land contact Outfitter Patrick Fisher. Lots of pigs on private land. Enjoy. Not very expensive for pigs. Scott
