HI: Announcement of archery hunting in the Puuanahulu Game Management Area for March 5, 2001

The Department of Land and Natural Resources announces opening
of archery hunting in

PUUANAHULU GAME MANAGEMENT AREA (GMA) beginning Saturday, March 5,

and continuing on weekends and State Holidays through June 26,
2011. Annual closure of the

archery season in this GMA will be from July through February.
Season length, bag limits, and

hunting areas are those established in Title 13, Chapter 123,
“Rules Regulating Game Mammal

Hunting.” The appellate court ruling of December 31, 2007 removed
the Department’s ability to

make any seasonal adjustments. The following conditions and
restrictions will apply for the hunt:

The daily bag limit will be one pig of either sex, one male goat
(billy), and one male sheep (ram)

per hunter per day.

Hunters will need to obtain 2011 billy and ram tags to legally hunt
in this area. Tags may be

obtained from any Hawaii Island Division of Forestry & Wildlife
office and a number of

commercial vendors, and are free of charge at this time.

Hunters must be in possession of an unused 2011 ram or billy tag to
continue hunting in the area.

The harvest tags will not be transferable and must be placed
through the hind leg of the animal

immediately after each kill.

Report game law violations to the Division of Conservation and
Resources Enforcement at (808)

974-6208 in Hilo. After hours and on weekends and holidays, calls
may be made toll-free to

Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), enforcement at
643-DLNR (643-3567).

Further information may be obtained by contacting the Division of
Forestry and Wildlife Offices
