Limited hunting activities are being allowed in the Pohakuloa Training Area this weekend under an agreement between the Army and state Forestry Division.
Archery hunting for mammals is allowed in training areas 17, 19, 20 and the northern section of training area 22 today through Monday. After that, those training areas will no longer be available for hunting because of federal environmental mandates, the Army said.
“The goal is to continue to reach out to hunters one last time despite the heightened Force Protection Condition levels,” said Lt. Col. Rolland Niles, commander of Pohakuloa Training Area.
As training activities permit, the Army is also considering opening up hunting in the northwest Keamuku area at the end of June.
