Home to the current #1 SCI all-time free-range Manchurian Sika! The allure of hunting these oversized Sika in the peak roar, while the stags are roaring and the forests are alive with rutting activity, is hard to deny. Couple this unique adventure with a historically rich and off-the-radar destination like Ukraine and you have something special.
Introduced from the Ussurri Province of far eastern Russia in the 1920’s, this robust Sika sub-species has been largely extirpated from his native range which spanned across northern China, Korea and eastern Russia. Now thriving in local pockets among the fertility of Ukraine’s rural marshlands and countryside, these might be the largest free-ranging Sika on the planet!
Rut hunts are limited to 10 openings annually, and come standard with all-inclusive airport-to-airport packages and flat-rate trophy fees. Settle your crosshairs on the biggest, meanest Sika stag you and your guide can find, with no hidden costs or extras. English speaking interpreter and 1x1 guiding, meals & lodgings, rifles and ammo, licensing and permits, trophy care and delivery to a taxidermist – all included.
Late September Red Stag/Sika combo hunts very limited, but at times available. Roe deer and Wild Boar can also occasionally be added as targets of opportunity, but it’s not prime season for either species.
The sight-seeing and historic tourism opportunities here are quite incredible however. Spending some time to explore the ancient city of Kiev while in Ukraine is highly encouraged. Military memorials, cathedrals, museums, historic tours, shopping and night life are just a few suggestions. Ukraine makes for a memorable and unique experience.
"Blessed to have hunted extensively across North America and world-wide destinations, Ukraine ranks in the top tier. Pursuing these roaring stags was simply astonishing. The cherry on top was taking the new world record free-range Manchurian Sika! A big thanks to Adrian for another excellent adventure."

"I wanted to take a moment and thank Adrian for a wonderful experience and hunt in Ukraine. Everything went flawless from the airport greeting, lodgings, and peak-rut dates selected. Game was abundant and I can’t think of anything that would have improved the experience. Highly recommended."
Harry, WI, USA
"Raised in Maryland hunting Sika, I knew one day I needed to pursue the giant Manchurian varieties living in Ukraine. The hunting was 100% as advertised, and I connected with an awesome stag! Exploring Kiev’s monuments, churches, wonderful food, culture and people left me truly humbled. Thank you!"
