    It,s unlucky if your the Deer. Hey Madkater you need to get the hide tanned on the albino. P M me if you need help on it .I do taxidermy work and have done it of the last 23 years. I will tell you how to work on it.

    Nice buck, cool albino. I like that idea of an albino rug.

    Nice Deer!! Tennessee won't let us shoot albino's. They just haven't learned yet I guess. It's illegal here to kill one. I've attached the excerpt from our hunting regs about this. I've only seen one here, but I've heard there are a few running around in our woods. I took some pics of one while I was on temporary duty at Bluegrass Army Depot in Lexington, KY a few years ago. They sure do stand out in a crowd of deer.

    Hey Mad Kater[ Kris] I have some European mounts to do.
    I will keep one of them back with the hide on it. If you want to hook up
    some time and do some fishing . I will bring it with me and we can go to work on it. It will take about 10 min .to do. :)
