Another for Sika. Not seeing enough palmation for me to think it is a Fallow.

That's because it is a young fallow buck. Palmation improves with maturity.

Its either a Sika or a Fallow with little to no palmation. Could easily be either but there is a 0% chance its a Axis.
From beam shape my guess is Fallow..

Definitely not an Axis!

My initial thought was Sika, after looking at the pics several times I believe it’s a young Fallow. From the side profile pic, I’ve never seen a Sika with that many points.....but I’m not an expert!

Another giveaway that shows fallow is the form of the main beams. Mid ways you can see where they curve again. This is where the palmation will form in the future as the fallow matures.

That is not a Sika. That is a fallow. Palmation starts around age 3. Really good palmation starts at 5. Read somewhere the biggest palmation is around 8-10 years.













Edit: the one in your pic is a chocolate fallow.

Definitely not an axis or a sika. It's a young fallow. Fallow is the only one of the three that has points coming off the back of the main beam. You can also see the Adam's apple in the 2nd pic.
