Anyone happen to know how to get a hold of Bob the Butcher guy on Lanai?

I am headed there a week from today and trying to find someplace to hopefully freeze some meat (or have it processed by him if that's my only option)?

Also am open to any suggestions if anyone has any other ideas. I am staying at the Four Seasons and the room only has a mini-fridge so that isn't going to cut it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Damn $1k a night just ask the hotel for spending that much I’d think they’d give you access ti their walk in.

Good luck on the archery hunt as it sounds like you’ll be there for that.

Tahoe and Wild. How ling you guys going to be there for? Going 25-29. Just seeing how many fellow roksliders going. Seen the stats its like 0.4-0.6 deer per archer compared to over 1 for rifle.

Good luck to all.

Have hunted Lana'i many times.
Low archery kills is not for lack of deer, just the opposite. Hard to stalk deer when there are so many eyes and ears.

Not sure if this was directed at me as I didn't see a Wild on the thread but I'll be there from the 20-28th and happy to meet up and chat or I'll buy a cold beer or two.

Good luck on your hunt!

All true except the guided hunt.

Super easy to do non guided. Can do public hunt by drawing once a year in November (hunts start in February for 3 months). Or you can hunt private rifle for $400 a day, archery $150 a year, or shotgun $150 a day all un guided.



Easiest way to stay is in town via air bnb. Expect about $200 a night for whole house. Hardest is getting a 4x4 vehicle to access to areas (all dirt roads).

happy to provide info and contacts I’ve made hunting there over last three years.Was there two weeks ago hunting private rifle for the weekend and going there in two weeks to do public archery. It’s an awesome island.

have spoke with a handful of folks on the phone from Rokslide and happy to speak with more. Don’t let it intimidate, it really is a gem out here and can be done pretty cheap.



Look at the hunting section for the private stuff
Thanks for the info! Very helpful!

Did you end up going / have any luck? I drew a nonresident archery permit and head to Lanai in 3 weeks.
