Hawaii is a sportsman’s paradise with its free-ranging exotics, gamebirds, plentiful wild pigs and perfect weather. American Hunter's Managing Editor Jeff Johnston was given an opportunity to chase hogs on one of the state's beautiful islands with CVA and Hawaii Safaris. The following gallery offers a glimpse of hunting in The Aloha State.
