Hunting in Hawaii

Discussion in 'Out of State Hunts, Stories & Pics' started by MO-APE, Dec 5, 2016.

  1. I spent the morning climbing over lava rocks and over 6,000' in elevation in the pouring rain to chase this guy. Absolute blast! Hawaiian Black Ram on the Big Island.

    Congrats on an awesome Ram! 22-250 with the right load and shot placement will take a lot of game!
     

  12. That was my initial plan, but the guide said this is definitely the wrong time of year unless you enjoy going on 100 mile hikes. Having said that I saw plenty of Rio's along the roads.
     
  13. Finally got the euro mount back and mounted on some awesome driftwood
