    I went out in the rain again yesterday afternoon and tried out my new ground blind. I had a deer come past at 20 yards as soon as I set it up. I was still getting it staked down and couldn't get a shot. An hour later four does including one that was almost pure white came by and fed just out of bow range. It had just a few small brown spots on it's left side. All the rest was white. Pretty cool!

    Sounds like a piebald. They vary a lot but they all have white in places where other deer don't. A friend of mine shot one several years ago that was a 9 pointer. It had one brown place on it's side about the size and shape of a football. They are not albino because they have color pigment and don't have pink eyes. They usually have a shorter, rounder nose.

    Thats cool. I have never heard of a piebald deer. We have a few albino deer around here. One buck is supposed to be a good 12pter. I met the man who received 3 of them in a herd of goats. Still has one that eats with the cows.

    That is what he told me. There were 3 albinos. This man is an old farmer probably in his 80s. His land backs up to the land I hunt. Maybe I will get to see one of them.

    They use to be very common on Ossabaw Island on the Georgia coast when it was privately owned.The owners "West" did not allow them to be shot when the deer were culled,so they lived to reproduce and be much of the deer population.Many had little color but white.Now that the public hunts have been going on for years,they have gone from the most common color to uncommon as they are easily visible and shot.It must be a hereditary thing that the former owners cultivated over many years.It looks like the Government is going to let them become extinct,just as they have been the major reason for many extinctions.My step father use to take my oldest son hunting there as the caretakers were part of his family.My oldest son killed his first deer there at 9 years old with a 30-30 Marlin.That rifle ate him alive from the looks of the bruises he came home with.It sure didn't slow him down.At 41 he is still hunting and killing deer with a 30-30 Marlin.I have a friend and co-grandfather to our grandson who has had them on his property for many years in the "Tiger Ridge" area of Effingham County Georgia.I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    Regina's uncle killed a piebald doe the other day. I was hoping to get pics of it,i've never seen one in person. Said it had a bunch of white on it. Said it was the first one he had killed also.
