Deadline TODAY for Axis Deer Hunting on Lana’i
By Wendy Osher
Today is the deadline to submit applications for axis deer hunting on Lanai. The season consists of three hunts—the first of which is an archery-only hunt over eight consecutive days beginning on February 19th. The second hunt is a Muzzleloading hunt taking place over two consecutive weekends beginning March 5th. And the third is a general rifle hunt held over 9 consecutive weekends beginning March 19th.
Application forms for the 2011 Lana‘i Axis deer hunting season, together with instruction sheets, are available at all Division of Forestry and Wildlife offices statewide. Due to a recent court ruling, application and tag fees have been waived.
Applications for all hunts may be submitted in-person or mailed, to the Maui Division of Forestry and Wildlife Office, 54 S. High St., Rm. 101, Wailuku, HI 96793 (Maui: 984-8100). Lana‘i residents only are to mail or deliver their applications to the Lana‘i Division of Forestry and Wildlife Office at 917 Fraser Ave., P.O. Box 630661, Lana‘i City, HI 96763 (Lana‘i: 565-7916).
