Thread: Deer identification ? sika or fallow

    Deer identification ? sika or fallow

    my friend took this photo..
    i reckon it is a sika, he says possibly a fallow
    i think is a sika due to the short tail compared to a fallow tail
    whats do you think

    C'mon, basic level 1 stuff i'd say. White metatarsal glands can only be a Sika!!

    I would say sika too, looks like the metatarsal glands on the rear legs on my phone it does anyway.

    Teyhan1 beat me to it!

    Sika, as a friend once described them looking down it's nose like you owe it money.

    No, it was Robert Ruark in Horn of the Hunter.

    And it is clearly a Sika.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
