    Sika Stags

    Nice to hear my boys whistling now,and especially nice to stalk an 8 pointer and his young stag son?They are still alive...... just a golden moment especially when they were joined by a bunch of hinds and calves...it is not all about the killing to me... unlike some of my neighbours

    Are they normally actively whistling as early as this?

    Sika rut would appear to have gone back a coup!e of weeks over the last few years, based on my experience from west coast of Scotland.

    I read somewhere that sika stags call 3 times,(only heard one do it once). Out of interest, do folk tend to call them 3 times on repeat during the rut to bring them in? I've seen a few videos of folk in NZ doing it electronically but not much uk videos. Cheers!

    I call twice and it works for me on most occasions. Sometimes the stags just call once, that is all you need to locate there position and try the call.

    Colder weather gets them going most years but it's warm here and they have started. Had one wander into the call this week. They come to various calls, quiet squeaks, single shrieks, double shrieks and the triple. Sceery elk call is probably the best call to use, hoochie mama works too.
