Special goat hunt on Kaua'i
The state will hold a special hunting season during two weekends this summer to thin out the feral goat population on Kaua'i.
The DLNR said yesterday that the special rifle season will be in June and August in the Kalalau valley and Pohakuao portions of the Na Pali Coast State Park. Up to now, hunting has been limited to archery.
The special season, June 22-23 and Aug. 10-11, is an animal control hunt.
Up to 52 hunters will be eligible to hunt during the two weekends, with no more than 26 hunters per weekend. Each hunter will be allowed four goats, two of which must be females.
Hunters will be chosen in a public lottery in Lihue on May 22. The deadline to apply is May 8.
