I was bouncing around the web tonight and came across this pic on the Missouri Conservation site (MDC).  Thought I'd share it.  It was seen in the ozarks.  I have see a white squirrel (albino) in the woods, but never a deer.

See lots of white tails in our own yard, eating our shrubs and plants unfortunately. Never seen a white one like that though. Thanks for the pic. We may have a solution to the deer problem at our place this spring but not one I am comfortable with. Found bear tracks in the yard mixed in with the deer prints. The prints were 7-8" across so it looks like a large black bear!!

I am not comfortable with that either!  The only bears I have seen around here are in the Kansas City Zoo and that works well with me!  The MDC (Missouri Dept. of Conservation) says that black bears are slowly migrating north to Missouri from Arkansas and if they take their sweet time getting here I am just fine with that!

I was coming home last fall after a late day in the tractor world, and I could have sworn that there was an albino deer that jumped the road with the rest of a herd a few miles from my house.  I didn't say anything to anyone because I figured somebody would put two and two together and claim that I had stopped "somewhere" on the way home.

 

Turns out, someone got an albino deer here locally.  So I guess I did see one after all!

 I have, to use a politically correct expression, 'harvested' a BUNCH of deer in the last 30 years or so I have been hunting them with a bow and a gun every deer season here in Missouri, many years taking at least two, sometimes three a year, and mostly does (they taste better!) I have not had the opportunity to take a albino deer and I don't think I could. Yea, I know it is just another smorgasbord on the hoof, but .....

When I was there over twenty years ago, We joked that the deer were radio active. The base was fully enclosed in very high chainlink fence many years before. A small herd of deer was trapped inside. The albinos showed up but were not culled as in the open.  They seemed to thrive and there were quite a few.

The things that the base scrapped made me sick. One day I saw an M1 clip and remarked about it. The guy said that they had just scrapped millions of them.

Who says that?? In Alberta the native american's say if  you harvest a albino moose your family will have prosperity for the rest of your life.. Not that i would shoot one. Heck if a deer looks at me, I mean right at me in the scope i can't find the heart to shoot em..
