Sika Show Competition results and future changes

The list needed some updating before it could be released, but here are the Sika Show Competition Results for 2018.
For next year, we are looking at changing it up - keeping the focus on Sika heads and the jaw collection data programme, and canning the other categories.
The reason? Some people still think it is okay to cheat, enter poached animals, provide inaccurate details, and so on... It's a right pain for the organisation to follow up on all this, but most of all it just isn't fair. What do you think? http://sika-show.co.nz/2018-results/

I guess that focussing on Sika only will increase the volume of herd data  for the Sika Foundation - which will be useful towards herd management?

Not sure how you would manage the poached Sika issue - but maybe through it being a smaller and closer hunting community there's more people in the know?

Just keep the tried and tested current formula, it's working well. Not everybody is addicted to hunting the squeaky voiced,runty deer.   Roll Eyes
  

Get as close as you can, then get a bit closer.

I think sticking to just Sika Deer entries is the way to go.There are now some real experts on the judging panel that have seen it all over the years. But been able to concentrate on the sika species to gather more herd data fits in with it's location in Taupo. There are enough red deer type competitions going on elsewhere in the community.

I haven't been to the show for a long time now but was there in the early years - the days when Shamus Howard from Heli Sika had his 500D parked outside on the truck trailer.  Smiley

I think its a great idea after all it is the sika show. I preferred the show when it was all about the heads. There should be a descent prize just for having a head entered just to get the interest up.

Bottom line is that whenever there is a competition it brings the worms out of the wood. Personally for myself I couldn't give a shit about parading a nice head I shot in front of the rest of the hunting public to be in with a chance to say I shot the biggest one. All that is, is a post pissing competition. If we hunt for that reason or monetary reward from shooting a big head then we are hunting for the wrong reasons. It stops being about the animal and becomes simply about winning over some one else. I do however like seeing photos of peoples heads on line or in magazines and the one positive from the Sika show is for hunters to see what is out there and has been shot recently. That is quite neat. You have to admit though that a look at some of the heads, reds in particular, shows that some of them were not 'wild' genetics at all or shot in normal 'wild' country. Some of those heads are about as interesting as looking at a cow. Wink

I attend every year, and while I understand the origins of the show being based around the the Sika, I for one would be very disappointed not to have the other species there too, as I'm just as interested in them.
The show has now developed and grown into the premier NI hunting event and feel that restricting it now just to the sika would be a backwards step.

Ok. So to confirm the stags poached and enable to go into the record book - like other record book species - a photo must be supplied of the said poached stag in its environment?  Cool Grin
