Sika Deer

Sika Deer

Our Sika Deer are descendants of three stags and three hinds that were shipped in 1904 from London by the Duke of Bedford as a gift to the New Zealand Government.

Smaller and lighter in build than Red Deer, a mature Sika stag is about 3 feet at the shoulder. The antlers, unlike those of the Red stag, have no bez tine and generally have only four points on each side.

Because Sika are extremely elusive and cunning, hunters must exercise the utmost patience and stealth.
