Thread: Heavy Sika Hind

    Heavy Sika Hind

    I was out last night and Culled a Sika Hind in Dorset. She appeared from a patch of gorse and appeared to be alone as she feed for 10 solitary minutes before I fired.

    When I retrieved her from the gorse I was suprised how heavy she was.

    When back at the larder I gralloched and removed her head and legs to weigh her for the game dealer. To my shock she weighed 91Lb. She was a bit wet as the heath was a little wet but she is still the biggest hind I have seen and i have seen quite a few shot in and around Dorset.

    Has anyone seen a Sika Hind bigger.

    Cheers

    For a clean weight that is a large Sika.
    There is a place on this planet for all of God's creatures, right next to my tatties and gravy!!!

    They do get to some exceptional weights in Dorset, or at least compared to all those I have taken in Scotland. But that is a very good weight for a hind.

    A big hind where we shot them in the Scottish borders would be about 70lbs. Biggest stags we shot were around the 10st mark.

    No, that is heavy.
    Looking at my records the heaviest Dorset sika hind I shot (out of only 12) was 80lbs and in Scotland (mainly borders) was 72lbs. The former was a mature yeld, any possible hybrids I've excluded.
