    Strippin Sika Q

    Hey team, from the experienced sika people out there, when can we expect to see the sika stags strip their fluffy stuff and be all coloured up. I have a mate of mine asking and as i hunt mainly reds im not sure if they are the same. So is there a general rule??

    I have heard them roaring their heads off in March.
    Shot my best one on last weekend of March around 25 yrs ago roaring and all coloured up.
    So depending on season I would say the same time as reds.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Yes he is a beauty 191DS shot him in an area not so well known for sika, pine country with plenty of grass so he grew a nice head, also it was after the eruption and ash covered a lot of this country and must have acted as a fertilizer. Several better sika heads were shot that year. Shot him in 97 I must confess it was in the light but it is what we were doing back then and to me it makes him no less a trophy, you still have to put in the hours.( And we spent thousands of hours spotlighting) I would much prefer to run into him in daylight though.
    Unfortunately our house isn't really suited to mounted animals to low a ceiling and to many heads to fit in.
