Illegal hunting troubles Big Isle ranches, farms
Hawaii News Now
HILO, Hawaii (AP) – Big Island landowners and law enforcement say illegal hunting on private property is still a major problem on the island.
This problem is a long-standing issue. It’s time for the community, the state, and law enforcement to figure out ways to keep our hunting traditions viable without violating property rightrs. Better yet, why can’t people just ask the landowner for permission to hunt on his/her property? Permission won’t be given in many instances, but asking first is the responsible and decent way to begin. Perhaps, the state could declare more areas open to local hunters. Why not let local hunters help control goats, sheep, and wild cattle on lands now being cleared by federally-hired hunters? Aloha, Russ.
