’21 Lanai axis deer hunt canceled
The 2021 Lanai axis deer hunting season has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry and Wildlife said Monday.
The cancellation of the hunt was “in the best interest of public safety,” the news release said.
The division is planning to implement a combination mouflon sheep/axis deer season in the summer or fall of 2021, pending the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. Information and updates on the mouflon sheep/axis deer combination hunt will be posted on the Division of Forestry and Wildlife webpage (https://dlnr.hawaii.gov/dofaw/) in the spring of 2021.
Hunters seeking further information may contact the Maui Branch of the Division of Forestry and Wildlife at 984-8100.
