It looks like a giant sika. Not sure why it's in velvet this time of year. I'm stumped too!

Looks like a rusa deer to me. Maybe a sambar. Axis-type antlers, but not an axis body or coat.

Sambar or Rusa in my opinion. Not a stag or sika

I was going to say Red Stag, but after seeing the other posts about a Sambar and checking it. I think they are right. Sambar.
Any high fence ranches around you?

Based on a quick google image search you may be 100% right

Pig part definitely fits though

Changing my answer. Given its height, I think it's more likely Sambar.

Sorry you can't change it, you were 100% sure. Now if you would have said 99% you would have some wiggle room

I'm thinking sambar. Looks like a big sika with a little longer tail.

If it's a Sambar run it to your neighbors place and let them eat it! My son shot one at PowderHorn and I was not that impressed with it. Old goat would have tasted batter.

Nocturnal doesn't matter. It's an exotic non-native species. You can hunt with a light just like you can for hogs.
