Anyone know? We've got sika free ranging our ranch. Guy shot one last weekend and I was wondering if it was something decently edible?

i shot one along time ago...the meat wasn't bad. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, if its a bull thats rutting.

I liked it more than fallow (yuck!) or blackbuck

The importance of good tasting deer meat lies more with the meat preparation then with the specie of deer. Any meat can taste good if cooked correctly. I had sika before and it was better then whitetail.

I like em', they have very dark meat resembling elk. A little different flavor than whitetail but still very good.

I always tell people to cool the meat as soon as possible.
