any one see or shoot a white deer
ive seen one albino in caswell county, couldnt get a shot on it it was with a group of other does, they was getting skiddish, so took a regular one lol!!! thought it was a goat when first seen it thru the thick stuff:angry:
Seen a white one in Caswell a few years back. Freaked me out at first.:confused2: A buddy of mine did get a white doe a few yrs back. Don't remember the county.
we shot 2 this passed year not all white but alot of white spots
woulda loved to have got it but i didnt have a shot and didnt want to just wound it, man theres sum good hog huntin up there guys need to check it out, i could give ya some info on some good game land, seen two while turkey hunting this spring, and a bear:crazy: killed a big hog its posted on my pics during rifle, and missed one during bow!!!!
I've seen some here in SE Iowa. They are illeagl to shoot here though.
I've heard good things about the hogs in Caswell. Been several years sence I've hunted there. Any info you got would be appriciated.
I haven't seen one yet. They are illegal to harvest in OKlahoma with out written permission from fish and game dept.
Shot at a piebald a few years back with the bow and missed it. I have seen a few white ones in WV. Seen 2 in the same field one evening with a big doe. I assumed they were twins.
when they have white spots all over them you should let them grow another year or so! :smile2: i have seen one piebald deer in my life and it was over 500 yards away. i thought it was an exotic or something at first. really cool, even though i didn't get a shot.
In ky they call theese piebald .
I have seen many piebald deer in our area and I have been able to shoot two of them on different occasions, but if you shoot one around where I live, you are going to have a lot of enemies. You don't shoot them around here, they're too neat to see.
i killed a solid white spike with my bow i have it mounted
I've never seen one yet, but sure would love to!
We had a pie-bald spike show up at the end of the season 2 years ago.
He was seen several times. No one has seen him since. I hope he's still
around just smarter.
There's a place in King William County Virginia on the north bank of the Pamunkey River that is covered up with Pie Balds. We shoot two or three every year off the farm. All the neighbors have them also.
I had a white deer walk past my blind last years in the Jefferson National Forest. I didn't see any brown on it, but unless I miss my guess, it was a Piebald not an albino. I couldn't see the eyes too well.
I shoot all of the piebald or spotted deer I see, I don't think there good for the overall health of the heard. I have read alot about them and most of it goes back to inbreed and over population. I have buck hunted for many years and not took enough does, in the last 2 years I have started getting a little more aggressive on the slick heads. I have not seen a difference yet but in another 2 or 3 years I hope it pays off, my buck to doe ratios is way off ( 5 does to 1 buck ) I still see a few spotted deer on trail cameras. All of the spotted deer I have shoot tend to be smaller than normal does of the same age. I shoot a 8 point with apx 13" inside spread, 3 1/2 years old that only weighed 110 lbs. As far as albino deer I have never seen one in the wild, would definitely take it, that would be a true trophy. I have never seen any reports from qualified source that can prove that they pass on any of the genetics that produce that beautiful white coat and great pink eyes. Read an article on the net they said they are apx. 1 in 500,000 don't know how true that is but it seem off to me maybe a little high.
All white/albino deer are protected here but where I grew up in West Central Illinois we had a whole herd of white deer we watched everyday on the school bus. They hung around one farm in particular. Local family of wanna be boones/ outlaws/ poachers/ no accounts/ low grade/ white trash poached them all. They just took the head and capes for the most part to sell. There was 2 antlered bucks that I remember.
I am yet to see an albino deer and it has already been stated that it is illegal to shoot one in Oklahoma. Plus lots of people would probably get upset around here since they are pretty rare.
