The Polynesian boar and hybrid (feral) sheep are abundant. It's a wonderful opportunity for a hunt while on your Hawaiian vacation. Hunting is available year-round, guns can be provided and trophies prepared and shipped. Families are welcome!

Hunting has been a way of life on Niihau Island since the first Polynesian settlers brought pigs to the island centuries ago. Today's decendants of those pigs are essentially unchanged from the first introduction, making the boar on Niihau unique trophies. Wild Boar on Niihau Island

When the ancestors of the present owners purchased Niihau in 1864, they introduced sheep to the island. The owners and residents have hunted the pigs and sheep for food for many generations using mostly ropes and knives.

In recent years, the populations of these animals increased to unacceptable levels. Mass hunting was started to control the feral sheep and pigs: thus Niihau Safaris Ltd. was born.

The owners of Niihau formed Niihau Safaris Ltd. to implement programmed harvesting of sheep and pigs to prevent further damage to Niihau Island. Hunts with Niihau Safaris give hunters the opportunity to enjoy good trophy hunting while simultaneously participating in a program of useful harvesting of game.

At Niihau Safaris, we are dedicated to the principles of good game management, fair chase hunting, and support good game management around the world. We, the game managers on private land, and you, the hunter, work as a team to harvest the right number and type of game in as efficient and humane a manner as possible. Hybrid Sheep Trophies

We work hard to achieve results, and expect the same from our clients. Hunting on Niihau is done according to the principles of free chase. Game is plentiful and hunters are certain to get an opportunity to shoot, but it is not an easy hunt. Shooting and stalking skill is required and tested to the utmost. The clients should come expecting a challenge.

ALL HUNTERS ARE WELCOME. We encourage a variety of hunting ages and abilities, including youth and family hunts. Additionally, due to the unique nature of the island, those who are handicapped may inquire for special arrangements.
