The Lanai mou­flon sheep and axis deer sea­son has been can­celed, the state Depart­ment of Land and Nat­u­ral Re­sources Di­vi­sion of Forestry and Wildlife said Thurs­day.

The di­vi­sion “has de­ter­mined the can­cel­la­tion of the hunt is in the best in­ter­est of pub­lic health and safety,” likely in light of the COVID-19 pan­demic.

The sea­son was sched­uled to start July 25 and run through Oct. 18 with archery, youth, muz­zleloader and gen­eral ri­fle, the DLNR web­site said.
