Alone and need boar hunting guidance - Oahu

Post  Sanction on Wed Apr 18, 2012 3:04 am

Hey guys. I am hoping I can seek some advice here on this forum.

I actually completed the Hawaii hunter ed course with my now-wife a year or two ago; I just have no idea where or even how to start. I basically grew up in Waikiki/Honolulu and I have no friends that share the same interests or desire to hunt; they're all too busy watching Jersey Shore or American Idol. Well, the bug to start hunting has caught me again and once again I find myself pouring over information on the interwebz, trying to find somewhere a complete noob can start; and once again I find my interest waning as I become increasingly overwhelmed with what I find.

So this is where I'm at right now:
I don't have any dogs; I don't have a bow, but buying one does sound like a good investment since there are archery-only seasons (I've never shot one before though); I do own firearms - .22, .223, and .308. I have 2 pistols but neither will fit the requirement of a min 5" barrel for semi-autos. I have the hunter ed cert and ready to get the license any time. I don't think I have any particular 'gear' I think is worth mentioning. I have hiking boots and cargo pants. I am primarily looking at boar, but may be interested in goats and birds if I ever get started.

My only experience hunting is at D&B's playing Big Game Hunter a few years ago.

Is the best way just go out there and hike around first? Anyone willing to take a beginner? Heck, are there paid guides that can teach these stuffs?

Any other advice in starting from scratch?

Anything will be appreciated, thanks guys Very Happy

Hiking (scouting) around never hurts, I do it all the time Very Happy . Do you have a map of the public hunting areas or know where they are? If you wanted to do the archery route Im a certified instructor and could help you with that.
