Thread: Sika mating

  1. #1

    Sika mating

    I know sika mate with red deer, but do they mate with fallow? I say absolutely no, but a fellow stalker is adamant they will mate with fallow deer.

    any thoughts??

    With Fallow I doubt it !
    However, Reds are Cervus Elaphus , Jap Sika are Cervus Nippon Nippon , same Genus .
    A local park had Fallow and some Jap Sika, there was no interaction.

    They can't successfully breed with Fallow,

    I seem to remember reading somewhere in Norma Chapman's fallow deer about rumoured red/fallow hybrids. She says it can't happen and the rumours are a loa of old ********. Although I don't think she worded it like that.

    Ive been keeping fallow and sika herds in the same paddocks for over 20 years… No cross breeding yet !!

    He should stick to singing (badly) then and not get involved in deer breeding.
