Why hunt Rusa Deer?

Rusa deer stags carry sturdy, but impressive antlers, with fewer points than in wapiti or red stag, but both points and beams thick and powerful. They are well-known for the habit of decorating them with tree branches, lianas, and other vegetation during the rut. If you see a picture of a deer whose antlers look like a bird’s nest or camouflage suit, chances are it’s the Rusa. Think about a challenge for a taxidermist to preserve not just the antlers, but the decoration too! In any case, the trophy will be a lasting memory of the hunt and the unusual environment where it took place.
