Camp 'Ka Hui’ Ana'
Hawaiian for “The meeting place”

"The very first time that I came here, I knew there was something special about this place. We numerous found artifacts - some dating back over 15,000 years. It became clear that people have been hunting and gathering here for hundreds of generations. There's something about this place that drew those people here and I feel it when I come here. Other people feel it too. I had several offers to sell the property, but felt that we needed to make it available for other people to see. One of the best ways to share it with other people was to provide hunting opportunities for trophy white-tailed deer."
