Last Friday morning saw me in deepest Dorset with professional deer guide Ian Farrington looking for a trophy Sika stag. Well as you can see we came across this big boy just half an hour after first light. I took him off the bipod with a 160 grain 6.5 x 55 through the base of the neck dropping him on the spot. He was just starting to smell of the rut and was as fat as butter, with a full mane and a huge thick neck. He is a seven pointer, the right antler is 50cms long with four points and the left antler is 48cms long with three points. All the tines are very long and thick. I was wondering if any of you Sika experts think he will make a medal?
I would like to thank Ian for once again providing me with the opportunity to take another fine trophy. Cheers FM.
