Antler growth is all about genetics, an nutrition. Hard climates an food sources that suffer also cause decreased antler growth.

I would harvest one if I had seen them. All eats the same and could make some nifty stuff with the pelts.

I never ate any of the 'albino' deer. I was told it was very different tasting meat than the local whitetail 'outside' the fencelines. I don't know how much of that I believe but everyone I shot or saw shot up there had tumor growths on them, so I donated everything I harvested. I heard they were more prone to diseases.

its deer meat. they eat the same stuff as "normal deer" they would taste the same. too many people believe in stupid wives tales. and if the meat was all tumored why would you donate it? why not chop it for dog meat or bury it or let a game warden know. maybe use it as coyote bait?

Cause the whole point of the hunt was to remove the deer. So they had someone accepting deer for donations. Couple people kept their meat. I didnt but I also didn't believe the 'wives' tails, as I stated, about the taste difference. and at that particular time I had more meat in my freezer than I needed so I donated mine because that's what I went out there to do. the growths, again, I don't really think would affect the meat aside from the localized tumor, so what they did with it was their business. We inbreed animals for food production every day, it can't be different.

That is pretty neat! It's like the creamy filling is on the outside.
