    On Wednesday November 15, 2017 morning I was sitting in my stand bordering Floyds Fork (Jefferson/Bullitt county line when up out of the creek came a Sika or Sitka (not sure of the correct spelling) deer. The only reason I knew what I was seeing was from previous hunting trips to Texas. I Knew there used to be some of these around here from past stories and knowing that a tag didn't need to be used I shot it. I did get a short phone video prior to shooting. Just a spike but what a trophy. I have been whitetail hunting for 40 years. what a morning. Last It is delicious. The most tender non gammy of all the different deer species I've ever taken. Yum Yum

    If anyone has questions or additional information please contact me.

    Could it be just a dark colored white tail? I'm pretty sure there is no population of Sitka deer near Jeff/Bullitt county line.

    Amazing. Hope you learn more about it. Is there a exotic game farm anywhere nearby?

    raised n Bullitt Co.
    We have Sika deer on the eastern shore of maryland and they dont look like that. Looks like a calf, thus the non-gamey taste. :)

    They just had an episode of the MeatEater Podcast on Sika deer. I believe they were hunting in Delmarva.

    We’ve had posts on here before about the Sika deer in KY. It’s legit.

    Sitka deer have a year round season here in KY, but on paper the only population I know of is LBL.

    I've heard about them in some areas in Ky. Congrats on your kill. Best thing is, good eating, no tag required!

    I believe you’re thinking of LBL’s fallow deer.

    There's a decent herd of them that hang out in the area where Billtown Road meets Seatonville. Fish and Wildlife has acknowledged them.
