The Sika Deer, Cervus nippon nippon, also known as the Spotted Deer or the Japanese Deer, is a species of deer native to much of East Asia and introduced to hunters in Europe and various other parts of the world. Its name comes from shika, the Japanese word for "deer".
The Sika deer is one of the few deer species that does not lose its spots upon reaching maturity. Spot patterns vary with region. The Sika deer can active throughout the day, though in areas with heavy human disturbance they tend to be nocturnal.

Sika Deer hunting & stalking in Czech & Slovakia
Across its original range and in many areas of the Czech and Slovak hunting grounds to which it has been introduced, the Sika is regarded as a particularly prized and elusive hunters quarry. Hunters and local gamekeepers have estimated that the Sika's wariness and "cleverness" makes it three or four times more difficult to bring to bag than a Red or Fallow deer. It has also been said that Sika are much more tenacious of life, and harder to kill with a rifle bullet, than the native deer of Europe.
