Default Deer print

My last "artifact" saved from my late brother-in-law and sister-in-law's house; I picked it up a couple weeks ago on a quick trip back. It hung over the sofa in the living room; it's old but I don't know how old. It has a kind of German hunting lodge vibe for me with the monochrome color scheme and the heavy oak frame, and the deer look European to me - maybe reindeer even? No place to put it but too many memories in it to let it go...

To me the racks look like really nice Sika deer . And some of the Sika on the small island of Japan get that size as well as some in New Zealand . Wish the ones on the eastern shore of MD and VA got that size !

Maybe Red Deer stags. They look too large to be Sika, to me.

There are 12-14 sub species of Sika several of the sub species get the size of mule deer .
