Sika Deer Stalking
At County Deer Stalking we are able to offer what we believe to be the finest sika deer stalking in the UK.
We have grounds in Dorset and in Kent where we are able to offer first-class stalking over hundreds of acres of stunning scenery.
Sika Deer Stalking can be highly challenging as these deer are a secretive and whilly quarry. The best time of year to be hunting is during the rut in September to October, and during the early days of the season for hinds in November.
As well as in Dorset and Kent, many who choose to hunt Sika, will visit Scotland where there is a large population of Sika, along with an increasing number of Sika/Red Hybrids. Other large herds can be found in the New Forest and East Anglia.
Sika Deer (Cervus Nippon) are one of the larger UK Deer Species having originally been introduced to the UK in the 19th Century from Japan.
Typically existing in single sex groups but mixing more readily during the Rut in September, Sika deer are a highly vocal deer with a large range of unusual calls.
