    I saw that also. Great news I was gonna ask to be certain when getting tags. I read somewhere the reason for the regulation on bringing out animals whole was a concern for poaching issues that may have been going on. It will make the hunt much easier for us guys that like to get away from a crowd into rough country. I'm in for the mouflon hunt.

    That rule change is great news and long overdue. I passed on a polly ram (hornless) that had a gorgeous hide because I didn't want to pack him out. I've complained to them numerous times about that rule and I'm guessing that I wasn't the only one complaining.

    Seeing videos and pictures from Lanai there look to be plenty of areas I would not want to pack a whole ram out of. I am getting excited thinking about this hunt.

    Are the polly rams fairly common to see during a hunt? I know each hunter gets a tag for one but didn't know how common it was to fill one. With the state muzzleloader and rifle hunts being only two days is at a bit of a dash to try to fill your tags?

    Too common. I told them that if they wanted them culled that they needed to make it easier. Also they would keep the head and horns on polies and mummus (deformed horned) They wouldn't let you keep the heads, I hope they changed that rule as well.

    It doesn't appear they have changed the head rule at this time. I plan on taking the first ewe possible then hunt for a nice ram and as a third get the polie ram if time permits. That is a lot of work in a two day span though it's gotta be tough to accomplish I would imagine. " That is if I'm able to draw the rifle permit".

    I'd go muzzleloader if you haven't already submitted your application.

    I thought about muzzle loader but I already put in for rifle glass eye. If I do not draw this year I am going to do muzzy next season. Pretty good draw odds on rifle though. It makes planning more difficult not knowing what week you may draw.

    Being able to know the weekend is the main reason I chose muzzleloader over rifle. My wife and I were able to book our flights last month and we plan to spend time in Maui regardless of drawing a tag or not. I also figured that the limited restrictions on muzzleloaders should allow for good shot opportunity. I know not having more than a 1X scope on mine is the biggest limiting factor and currently I am very confident out to 100 yards. It will be interesting this summer to see what a higher magnification scope will do.

    If you have IG look up mr_stealthmode. If I knew I had this kind of oppourtunity growing up I don't think I would have left my home ha ha! I was born and raised on Oahu, and left when I was 18. I would say Kauai, Lanai, Maui, and Big Island would be your best bet's. I've seen in person deer taken in Lanai, and the rest of the islands all offer very good pig hunting as well. I came across his page a few days ago and he has a lot of videos of his hunts. I don't know if there is a difference between res and non res limits, but according to him he told me there is no season, no bag limit, and no tags needed.

    For many years there have been rumors that kiwis are going to be hired to eradicate them all. This is why I don't mind posting info online about Lana'i. There are too many animals and if hunters can't keep them in check something bad is going to happen.

    One of my best friends who lives on Maui and works for Kamehameha Schools just sent me this. He said a lot of bow hunters go to the school and hunt at night with the DLNR permit. He said there is a lot of them.

    He is taking these pictures from school property. After the last picture they got spooked and ran over the hill.

    You can use a rifle as well, but he said a lot choose to go with their bow instead.

    I am researching this hunt and thought I saw that you can hunt the Lana'i Company Land year round? Is that correct? I would like to bow hunt either chital or sheep from around 20 July 2018.

    I do believe you are correct Kiwi.

    Kiwi......the Lanai Co. Archery only areas are very limited opportunities for sheep. Chital (axis) are everywhere.
    For mouflon, go for the State run archery.

    Hey glass eye another question if you don't mind. I can't find when the draw will be released on sheep. Do you know how long it normally takes them to post results?

    It all varies as to which island you are hunting and also whether it's public land or private. On lanai there are no season dates on company land. If your on the state hunt there are season's and within those season are time periods you are drawn for weekend hunts. I think the bow season is about a week though.
    Go to dlnr.Hawaii.gov lots of info there to learn the process. Several odd rules and regs compared to the 48
