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?
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.
Are the adults still tastey?
Seems we hear about a couple from this small population killed each year. I do know some people that see them from time to time in Jefferson Co. Would be a rare trophy for sure. They don't seem to be hurting anything at all. Maybe fish and wildlife should allow the population to grow. Seems like it has worked well in Maryland. Would be a unique hunting opportunity.
Rookie, thanks after all these years, validating what I thought I have seen. You see, I used to travel Gene Snyder daily and just past Billtown road heading North I would see these deer out feeding and the first time or two I thought there was something odd about them. One time I slowed way down and looked closely at them to confirm that they certainly were not whitetails. Looked like Muledeer from behind with there black tails.
I told my brother and he actually saw them one day as well.
Sounds like the mystery is solved.
I've seen a few on my property, that I believe they are Sika Deer, but not really sure. A few years ago, during our 2-day M/L season I had a Dark Brown Doe come near my ladder stand and was in thick brush. I shot at it but missed due to the brush. I haven't seen any male Deer of this color yet here, only a few Doe.
That's cool, nice trophy.
