One of America’s most underappreciated hunting destinations is the big island of Hawaii.
High on the shoulders of its towering volcanoes, hunters can pursue a dizzying variety of upland birds, wild turkeys and big game in the form of wild goats, feral sheep and wild pigs.
For those of us who have expended our modest means just getting to Hawaii, the remarkable thing about hunting here is that, at least on the Big Island, much of the huntable game exists on public land. You don’t need a guide, or an outfitter. You just rent a car, drive to the higher elevations, and start hunting.
