  • When: All Day, July - August
  • Where: On Trees
  • Value: 1000 Bells

The Miyama Stag is a common bug, meaning it shouldn’t take you too long to catch one in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Still, with such an influx of cicadas during the day, you might find that Miyama Stags are easier to find in the evening. The large size and big pincers on this stag should make it an easy spot. All you need to do to catch one is to approach the tree slowly with your net. Running or sprinting nearby will scare the stag off, so ready your net by holding A then only swing when you’re close.
