Sika are cool little critters. They're like miniature elk. They're cousins to elk and red deer. They are free ranging in parts of the Texas Hill Country (along with axis, fallow, blackbuck, aoudad, mouflon, and some other exotics). We have a decent herd of sika on the ranch we hunt. We're not killing them yet, as we're trying to let them build up their numbers even more first. October was fun. Saw several bucks during the rut. This was the biggest one, and I managed to get some shots of him with my big camera one day. 4x4 racks are as big as they typically get, when mature.
