I think this herd is not albino deer but true white deer. That is white deer with brown eyes. Albino animals lack any pigmentation. White animals are just that........white animals. This herd of white deer have been thriving for many years. I don't believe there is any illness or weakness in this gene pool as there might be for true albinos.

There is a few albino deer in Wisconsin, too. Albinos will have pink eyes and very pink nose leather. The white deer will have brown eyes.

I think to take one on occasion is as good for this herd as it is for any other herd.

I think you are correct on that Winds. On a different note..I noticed a comment from a gal from LA below that article..who suggests Deer Hunters only shoot for the kill aspect because NObody eats venison. What a ignorant fool...I've never met any Deer Hunters who don't keep the meat...and I've been living in deer country a long long time

Although few in number there are a antler hunter around, I have seen some check their deer and ask if anyone wants them. And if no one takes them I know full well that they are dumped on the side of the road. Also lots around here are never check in to begin with. Lots buy tags but kill deer and not tag them also.

I always tagged every one and ate everyone.

When I lived in Pelham NH I had a big buck that bedded not 25 yards from my back door. He had a pass every year as he became part of the family. My wife never saw him. You could see him coming and going, only his legs through the dense brush. We were in a densely populated area compared to most places. He had a large pond and swamp less then 30 yards past my door. I saw bow hunters walk right past him on their way in and out year after year. I would put a 5lb bag of apples out for him every Christmas. I did shoot a whiteish/ very light, very big coyote w/ #4 lead there.

Kentucky that's where, and I bet there are some everywhere. Heck it's getting hard to find a place to hunt anymore with all the out of state guys leasing up hunting rights

Well..I'm sure it goes a little up here too. For the most part Wisconsin and Minnesota take the venison...that's my experience.

You would think they could atleast take it somewhere to donate it. If my family has a surplus, or one is not up to someone elses "standards" , we will take them, process them, and donate the meat to the local homeless shelters. It is ALWAYS apreciated there. I am of the same mindset as you kycol, I fill a tag, I report it, and I eat it. The only reason I hunt is for food. After all, the meat at the grocery store is way overpriced. I also pick up fresh roadkill deer, and do the same with it. If god decides to grace me with a free meal, I am more than willing to do his work and share it with others in need. That being said, the poeple I hunt with and I have 2 clear rules.

1 If it is a buck, age it before you shoot. Take a good look at the body and the face, and you can tell if it is over 3 1\2 years of age. It is a personal preference of the group, to let them get big, and let them spread the genetics on to the next generation. In time, this will improve the quality of the harvest.

2 There are 2 piebalds (white with brown spots) on the property we hunt. They are not to be shot, unless they are wounded by another hunter, or another animal.

The second is the landowner's rule. We follow it when ever we go to his farm to hunt. It is not wise to sh!t where you eat, 'nuff said.

I would have too. With a camera if it was in range, or with a gun if deemed necisary by rule 2.

My friend has a albino buck near his house, he said it was a 6 point. He didn't shoot it cause he thought it was too pretty to shoot. I woulda shot it on the spot. IMO
