More About The Sika Deer:
Surrounded by the cover of Texas woodlands; Sika deer enjoy a lush diet of vegetation from trees, shrubs, holly, acorns, heather, fungi and conifers.
Peak rut season runs August to October when love-sick males become increasingly vulnerable to Sika deer hunting. During this time, Sika stags will compete for does by; ‘screaming’, walking parallel, urinating their scent, scoring tree trunks, and ground thrashing.
Maximum lifespan for a Sika deer in the wild is 16 years of age, while in captivity can reach up to 25 years.
The most successful guided Sika deer hunting in Texas have spawned from the rugged backcountry hills, dense forests and areas of thick vegetation where the Sika deer dwells.
The Sika deer antler ranges from 12”- 30” in length with 3-4 points, providing a modest - yet stunning - trophy piece for any cabin or man cave wall.
Sika deer are extremely vocal - able produce 10 separate sounds from a supple whistle to a bone shrilling scream to ward off other male Sika, or warn of impending danger.
