Description

The sambar is a large deer native to the Indian subcontinent, southern China, and Southeast Asia. Sambar were introduced into Australia's Victoria in the 1860s. They quickly adapted to the swamp and thereafter spread into the high country, where in 2017, numbers were estimated at between 750,000 and one million animals. In Australia, hunting sambar is a popular sport. Australian hunting fraternities prize large sambar trophies.
