Boars/Boar hunting

So, one of my friends talked about how he and a roommate hunted boars, or something.

Another guy I know who lived in Hawaii says that my friend is full of, ah, crap, and that it's just not a thing.

I realize different islands have different animals (imported and otherwise) but I tend to believe both these people so one must be mistaken (if it's a mistake the latter opinion seems more likely since it's more able to be based off ignorance).

So, are there wild boars in sufficient population that they are hunted on the/a Hawaiian island/s?

There's a lot of boar hunting on Oahu. Generally, it's done with knives and dogs.

There's rules and regulations for it, of course - although I don't know how many people actually follow them

There's even an association for it here on Oahu, and they hold an annual "Big Boar Hunt"

My friend hunts up in the mountain by Kapolei for boar, always gets some sausages the week later and they are awesome.

Hawaii also has turkey hunting. I believe the species is like the ocellated turkey that is found in Florida.
