Nordik Sika is especially developed to imitate the call of a sika stag in rut.
For calling sika stags during the rut, start by expanding the lower part of the call, place the mouthpiece to your lips and start to blow softly into the call, growl, and then soft again. Carefully change to blow hard to reach a high pitched whistling noise, then carefully change intensity again to blow short and soft and growl softly. Call three times like this, wait and adjust your next calling sequence to the response of the deer. Note, sometimes the stags approaches without response. For best result, open and close your hands in front of the call for a more authentic sound. Make sure you do not blow any saliva into the mouthpiece. This call can also be used to imitate the distress call of a red deer calf. This sound agitates the hind herd, attracting them to come close, often barking. This type of calling is most successful in areas with dense red deer populations.
For calling a red deer hind, expand the lower part of the call and place the mouthpiece between your lips and exhale. Blow short and longer thrusts of air for 15-20 seconds, rest for two to three minutes and continue to call like this for 15-20 minutes each stand.
When calling in this way, you may also attract predators such as wolves and lynx in these areas where reed deer are common.
