Parker Ranch Hunting

Parker Ranch Hunting

Parker Ranch is happy to announce the return of guided hunting tours on the Big Island of Hawaii. Parker Ranch comprises approximately 130,000 acres of varying terrain stretching from the ocean to 8,000 feet of elevation on the slopes of Maunakea.

Harvesting an animal on Parker Ranch is truly a bonus as your guided hunt offers you unparalleled scenic views of the island of Hawai`i.

Big Game Hunts

Mouflon Sheep, Mouflon Hybrid Sheep, Pigs, and Goats are available for harvest on Parker Ranch guided hunting tours. The hunt fee is $2,000 for the first hunter, $1,000 for a second hunter. The hunt fee allows you to harvest all 3 big game species.  There is a $500 harvest fee per animal. Ram and Billy trophy fees apply. Firearms and ammunition are provided free of charge. Archery hunters will need to provide their own equipment. Lunch, drinks, and snacks are provided. Calls will be answered by one of the Hunting Guides.

Mouflon and Mouflon Hybrid Mouflon Sheep are the most prized mammal species on the island of Hawaii. They have exceptional eyesight and an awareness to stay just beyond the effective distances of Archery or Rifle Hunting. Trophy rams have been harvested with horns above 35 inches in length. One ram is allowed per hunt with trophy fees for rams above 25 inches of horn length. Smaller rams below 25 inches of horn length carry the standard harvest fee of $500.  The Trophy fee replaces the harvest fee.

Goats have made a home for themselves on all parts of the island. They tend to be less wary than Mouflon Sheep making them an easier target via bow. One Billy is allowed per hunt. Large males can have impressive sweeps and curls in their horns with long beards and heavily muscled front quarters. The standard $500 harvest fee applies for a Billy up to 30″ of horn length.  A Billy above 30″ of horn length will carry a trophy fee that replaces the harvest fee.

Frequently nocturnal in nature, pigs on Parker Ranch can routinely be spotted feeding during cool periods of the day allowing for pigs to be harvested with a bow or rifle via spot and stalk. Boars have been harvested with knife like sharpened tusks bright white in color and over 5 inches in length. Course hair, sharp tusks, a protective shield, and their aggressive demeanor make for an exciting hunt. The standard $500 harvest fee applies.

Meat Only Hunts are available for sale please contact us for details.  Ewes, Nanny Goats, Sows, and Non-Typical Rams may be harvested on Meat Only Hunts.  Typical Rams, Billy Goats, and Large Boars may not be harvested on Meat Only Hunts.  Lunch is not provided on the Meat Only Hunts due to the discounted price.

Turkey Hunts

The Spring Turkey Hunt for wild Rio Grande Turkey runs from March 1st to April 15th.  The hunt fee is $1500 USD for the first hunter and $1000 for a second which allows the harvest of a single Tom by each hunter.  Additional Toms may be purchased by either or both hunters for an additional $1000 each.  The state limit is 3 Toms per hunter and all 3 can be harvested in the same day.  We recommend you purchase 3 tags each from Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources which gives you the option to bag out.
