Sheep, deer season canceled

The Maui News

The Lanai mouflon sheep and axis deer season has been canceled, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry and Wildlife said Thursday.

The division “has determined the cancellation of the hunt is in the best interest of public health and safety,” likely in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The season was scheduled to start July 25 and run through Oct. 18 with archery, youth, muzzleloader and general rifle, the DLNR website said.
