Thread: Sika rut starting

    Sika rut starting

    I heard my first sika stag calling on Friday night whilst doing a level two for a chap. He successfully culled a stag and it had a gouge out of its backside, no doubt from a bigger stag. The next night, a pal was out and saw a stag run full tilt at another, smaller stag and sent him flying. He hit him so hard he snapped a tine off!
    Has anyone else found the sika starting to get busy with eachother?

    Heard one whistle in Tyrone on a Saturday evening. It's very early.

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