Thread: Hybrid rutting call?

    Hybrid rutting call?

    What noise would a Red/Sika stag make during the rut? Roar or whistle? Or some weird cross noise?

    any that I have heard roar, although if the animal carried more sika in its make up it may well whistle

    depends what vocals they can do, red looking hybrids might not be able to whistle in the same ways that sika looking hybrids might not be able to roar. If I saw a sika roar or a red whistle they'd be getting one anyway!

    There's a woman at Sussex uni called Megan Wyman who has done a PhD on sika/red hybridisation, and one of her areas of investigation was the calling/roaring. I think she has either just published or is about to publish the results to this very question - and if I remember right, it's not quite as straightforward as you'd expect.

    Shurely a hybrid will produce something between a roar and a whistle, i.e. either a rhistle or a woar???

    Apologies; it is Monday morning
