Yup! Maryland Elk aka Sika Deer. Brother talked us into hunting them this year with archery on the Eastern Shore. Son managed to stick one. The deer came past me and I saw where it laid down about 60 yards from me just out of sight due to the vegetation. We gave him an hour, and sure enough, he was right where I thought he was. Not sure how this stag compares, only ever saw one other and that was at the taxidermist where we dropped the cape off. We hunted 3 days and this was the only sika we saw while in the stands. There were bugling like crazy so it was pretty cool getting to hear that.
