    Thought you might like to see the following pictures.
    The first one was in 2008 when he was a fawn and the next one was this summer when he walked out into my front yard. For those who have never seen one before it is what is called a Pie Bald Deer in Tennessee.

    We've got a lot of those here and in the northeast part of the state where I grew up there's a lot of white deer, not albinos just white.

    Awesome! We had an albino, completely white, down at my folks place. We watched her for 2 years before the neighbor shot her.

    He is around the seventh generation of this family I have followed and photographed since 2003. Here is the original Mother (Doe) Deer that actually died in the winter of 2009. I figured she was around 2 years of age when we moved here in 2003. I could always ID her due to the fact that when she was young coyotes or something had attacked her as a young fawn and left scars on her side that were easily Identified. This is her below in 2006 with twins. I am sure the Pie Balds mother was one of the fawns in the picture with the Old Mother Doe. The Mother Doe had twins every year when she was alive. I figure she was around 8 or 9 in 2009 when she died. I am an avid hunter but have a lot of respect and love wildlife and nature! :)

    Ya my little cousins first bow kill ever was last year and he killed a button buck that was what we call a fallow deer. I didnt want him to kill the big doe and thought he had until we climbed down and i seen the nubs. Im glad now that he killed it since it was about a 3 year old deer and had several broken ribs and a badly healed front leg.

    NY boasts one of the largest populations of white deer in the world....NOT albino...eyes still have pigment.

    No they are naturally that way. They are from canada. They are a different type of whitetail.

    I think those solid white ones ar also considered piebald, something about it being the same genetics that cause the coloring.

    They look like some real fancy moccasins to me.

    yea. I always wondered what caused the coloration. The ones here in Western NY around Niagara Falls like to hang around the abandoned Ransomville Air Force installations and certain chemical dumps *cough* LOVE CANAL *cough* :eek:

    white deer

    I read somewhere that in an eastern state there is an army base /depot that is covered up in white deer ....the pictures of the bucks shows a genetic trait of very little (nubs) or no brow tines. they can be hunted ther with a special permit

    When I was stationed in NY we were permitted to hunt Seneca Army Depot on a lottery system, they were mostly White/Grey mix but I was under the impression that it was due to inbreeding because it is vastly fenced in.

    white deer

    would in-breeding cause the lack of brow tines ? i know that Anticosty Island off of nova scotia has a very high density of deer per square mile ...the bucks there have little or no brow tines too !
