When you go hog hunting Hawaii, you’re experiencing a culture that is thousands of years old. These hogs were brought to the Hawaiian Islands by the early Polynesians thousands of years ago, and have earned their place in history.
Wild hog hunting Hawaii is a classic adventure!
In the late 1700’s, the pua’a (pig) was brought to Hawaii by Captain James Cook, as a source of protein on their journey. Through the years, these Polynesian wild boars have prospered on the Islands, causing extreme damage to Hawaii’s rainforest ecosystem. Hunting is the only thing keeping the wild boar populations in check.Get More Information About This Hunt
You can bowhunt or use your rifle, but traditionally you’ll use a knife. Wild boar hunting in Hawaii is done by using dogs and a knife or spear. The dogs will chase the pig, until it “bays up.” You’ll listen for the barking and try to keep up. Once you find the source of the ruckus, you’ll finish off the hog with a large knife. Hog hunting with dogs in Hawaii is a rush! It isn’t for everybody, but if you feel you’re up for it, let us know.

Had been vacationing for a couple weeks touring Hawaiian Islands and went on an afternoon hog hunt in Maui. Really an enjoyable adventure with a very profession guide. Made for a great memory.
