Get your Hawaii State Hunting License Online
Hawaii Hunting requires a valid hunting license for both public and private land. In order to purchase a State of Hawaii Hunting License, you must possess one of the following documents:
- Hawaii Hunter Education Wallet Card
- Letter of Exemption for Hunter Education from your State of Residence
Hawaii Hunter Education Wallet Cards are issued to graduates of a basic Hunter Education course and you may use it to purchase a Hawaii Hunting License directly from a license agent at various retail locations throughout the State. You may also purchase your Hawaii Hunting License online.
Letters of Exemption are issued free to those who have an out-of-state hunter education card or a Hawaii Hunting License issued prior to July 1, 1990. Click here for a Letter of Exemption mail request form.
If you’re a nonresident without a hunter education card, contact your local hunter education office and find out how, when, and where to enroll in a hunter education course in your home state/province. Once you get your hunter education certificate, you need to fill out and mail in a completed Letter of Exemption form to the DOFAW office. Once your form is processed and validated you will be able to purchase a Hawaii hunting license. This can be a lengthy process, please allow at least three weeks for the State of Hawaii to respond to your request with a Letter of Exemption.
Unfortunately, many hunters don’t plan or research their hunting trips before traveling to Hawaii and are turned away at the license agent’s counter because they were unaware of these license requirements. As always, with any hunting trip, know before you go!
