They are very beautiful animals. Thanks for sharing.
Deer are a beautiful animal, white just sets them off as special.

Those are nice. We have a couple of 50/50 normal/albino white tail roaming around here and so far there seems to be an unofficial gentleman agreement locally to leave them be. I've talked to a number of folks that have seen them while out hunting and passed them up. I think everyone is hoping a few will pair up and give us a full albino. I think so far I've spotted 3 distinctly different deer. One yearling buck and two doe. I've seen them enough times I can tell the difference based on the coat patterns. The white is more blotchy on one of them then the others. The other two seem to be actual half and half. The front halves are normal and the back halves are snow white.

I've heard stories, seen a couple-few pictures, even saw a stuffed one that had been shot almost a century ago..........
but those critters are beautiful ! I agree, leave 'em alone.

I don't think any responsible hunter would shoot one,responsible hunters only take what they need and there are plenty of plain old brown deer to fill the freezer with
