    Awesome hunt!
    Guides were great. Everyone was on time and did what they said they were going to to do. I would highly recommend this axis deer hunt in Hawaii.

  3. Cory Glauner

    Hunting axis deer on Molokai was an absolute eye opener. There were deer EVERYWHERE! Yet, somehow they are very difficult to hunt (with a bow). I was humbled over and over again, and finally when I had success it was amazing! Can’t wait to go back again.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
