Congrats on bagging the best form of venison of all the deer species. I would pass up a B&C whitetail for a sika spiker. I have hunted successfully several times in Scotland, and will be heading up to MD to give them a go in Jan of this year. If you really want to focus on them, a sika whistle call in mid to late Oct will work wonders. They are very aggressive during their rut. There are several subspecies, but outside of TX they are almost all the Southern Japanese sub species. Out in TX they have some of the manchurian subspecies and these are much larger antlered. Oh, and not trying to be a grammar nazi or anything - but these are SIKA (pronounced SEE KA, unless you are in MD then they say SICK AH). The SITKA are a type of blacktail found in Alaska, and are a completely different genus and species.
