Honestly do not know myself, the pictures were 'poached' from another forum, but in my opinion:
#1: looks like a red but has spots and an eyebrow ridge similar to a sika though ---I'll go young red stag
#2: Looks like a red stag head but got a white arse and a body like a sika stag, but no white hock gland ----sika/red hybrid, or a Manchurian, they have big antlers don't they? Yeah, Manchuarian (possibly LOL).
#3: Looks like a Sika but head and posture reminds me of CWD,----sika calf but could be something more exotic ?

The more I look at pic 3 the more unsure I am, colour right for CWD but wrong (?) for Sika, too leggy for winter CWD ??? Dunno, easy answer would be CWD x sika hybrid (them 'ol sika stags put it around a bit dont they ?!?!)
I'll stick with my initial ID and say Sika calf
1) Red / Sika Hybrid Stag
2) Manchurian Sika Stag
3) Formosan Sika Calf
3- manchurian calf
Going for -
1. Red Stag
2. Manchurian Sika Stag
3. Sika Calf - not confidant enough to say whether it's a Jap, Manchurian or Formosan without tasting it
You might get a clue here
sika hybrid calf
