The annual Sika Show & Competition, held at the Great Lake Centre in Taupo in September, is the largest outdoor trade show of its kind in New Zealand. More than 6000 hunters visit the show each year for the competitions, taxidermy, and the latest innovations in hunting and outdoor-related products and services.
An important element of the Sika Show since the beginnings in 1993 has been the collection of jaws. The jaw collection data gathered by Hunters & Habitats and the Sika Show provides valuable information on the population, demography, and condition of Sika deer in New Zealand.
The 25th Sika Show is set to be an even bigger event than the last one. There will be even more exhibitors than in previous years, and a huge turnout is again expected. See you there!
