DLNR Will Hold a Public Meeting for Proposed Big Island Shooting Range

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will hold a public meeting for a proposed public shooting range at Pu‘u Anahulu, in the North Kona district of the Island of Hawai‘i.

The purpose of the meeting is to inform the public of the progress of the shooting range master plan and draft environmental assessment.

The informational meeting will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4, at the West Hawai‘i Civic Center’s Community Meeting Hale at 74-5044 Ane Keohokalole Highway in Kailua-Kona.

Funding for a master plan and environmental assessment has been secured through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act (Pittman-Robertson Act).

The project site is comprised of one square mile (approximately 640 acres) within TMK (3) 7-1-003:001 located within the Pu‘u Anahulu Game Management area and mauka of Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway. The site is located immediately adjacent to the West Hawai‘i sanitary landfill.

Range elements are anticipated to include public rifle, pistol, bow hunting/archery, sporting clays, skeet, trap and airgun ranges that conform to safety requirements and are consistent with and meet the niches for recreational hunting and shooting sports. Supporting facilities are expected to include structures to house management and operations, as well as a hunter education center, restrooms, picnic areas and parking.
