In Part 2 Cam and Stephen Talk about the Central North Island Sika Foundation
Whether you hunt for meat, trophy or both, there is no denying that Sika present the hunter with challenges and interactions like no other deer species.
Their vocal and inquisitive nature, combined with their ability to learn quickly from mistakes and adapt to hunting pressure makes them one of our most exciting and addictive big game animals to hunt. It is these traits that make the Sika one of New Zealand’s iconic hunting resources.
To help facilitate a process of engagement with the Department of Conservation (DOC) and the Game Animal Council (GAC), the Central North Island Sika Foundation was formed. The Foundation has as its vision:
” Healthy Sika thriving in sustainable forests and grasslands, managed by stakeholders as a valued hunting resource”
