World Class Sika!

Forister Exotics Dybowski Sika Hunts

Doug Sika 1

A good friend and hunting client Doug had been wanting a giant Sika deer for a long time. He can check that one off the list! Doug wasn’t interested in the typical Japanese Sika and I had told him to hold off and let some of our Dybowski get bigger well looks like that waiting paid off big time. Preliminary measurements have Doug’s Trophy Dybowski Sika measuring in the top 10 for Trophy Game Records. Congrats Doug on a great Dybowski Sika buck!

Accidental Sika in the Rain!

Forister Exotics Sika Deer

Keith Sika

Keith and Joe had booked a hunt back in August for this past weekend. Keith has hunted a few times over the summer and harvested a few animals on a mission to train his new blood dog TJ. After deciding we might like to look for a big Mouflon possibly for both hunters we made our way around the pasture in the rain looking for the biggest Mouflon we could find. After a couple of almost shot opportunities we were set up on the herd trying to pick the biggest one when Keith asks ” Hey what the heck is that coming out in the back?” I quickly shifted my binoculars to the back of the herd and there was this Impressive Sika Buck working his way along the cedar line at about 200 yards. Keith quickly got the deer in focus and made what we thought was a pretty good first shot on the Sika Buck. We gave him a few minutes and with TJ in tow we set out before the rain could was the blood and scent away. As we approached where the Sika buck went into the cedar at TJ quickly picked up the trail and before we knew it he had jumped the big Sika Buck and the chase was on. We quickly caught up to the next cedar break and TJ had lost the Sika Buck. As we watched him work the trails TJ locked on again and Keith was able to get another shot off on the Sika buck. This time the Sika buck went down for good and we let TJ finish tracking him out. What a great learning experience for TJ who is showing signs of being a valuable asset for Keith hopefully for many years to come. Oh yeah and Keith had his hands on a very impressive Sika buck to boot. Congrats Keith on an awesome hunt and finally getting a good work out for TJ.
