Mouflon Sheep Hunting in Hawaii
The Big Island is home to a herd of free ranging, purebred mouflon sheep, and they are highly sought after game animals, second only to axis deer. They live in the high elevation, rough lava flows on the slope of the Mauna Loa volcano. Other sheep species on the island include Black Hawaiian sheep, which live in the high forests.
Vancouver Bull Hunts
Hawaii is also where you can hunt one of the only dangerous game animals that Hawaii has to offer, the Vancouver bull. Similar to the scrub bulls in Australia, these bulls are like the Hawaiian version of the American bison. They are wild, and known to be aggressive.
They were brought to Hawaii in 1778 as a gift to King Kamehameha from Captain George Vancouver, and have been living in the dense rainforest of Mauna Loa ever since. Wounded bulls have been known to charge hunters, and you guides will be armed to back you up on this hunt.
If you like hunting rough terrain in beautiful country, you’re going to love hunting goats! They live in the most beautiful, and remote areas of the Big Island. Typically, you’ll chase goats early in the morning when they are active.
