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.. 

 

 

patience, just wait 'til she turns broadside, then WHAM!!!!   works for me...

I forgot . Someone turned a pet doe loose with an orange collar . She's been around daily for about 4yrs now and if your slow and careful you can walk within about 20 feet of her .

That deer isn't a true albino, it's nose and eyes aren't pink. Someone posted something about that herd in Missouri before. I don't remember the whole story but I believe they were a different variety of deer and not the typical whitetail. Someone used to keep a small herd of them penned up in northern PA. I've got pictures of them hiding somewhere in the office.

Many years ago the importation laws were lax. I was the Town Engineer shared by all the towns in the county.  A farmer in my county got several of the tiny German deer and kept them in a several acre enclosure. They were very cute little things. A hurricane in the mid 80s knocked down a section of fence and part of the herd got out.

 

A few years later, my neighbor came over and asked if I had seen any tiny deer in the woods. Jim was used to seeing tiny deer when he was stationed in Germany. I laughed and told him where he had seen them(about 20 miles from where we lived). He asked how I knew and I explained.

 

Coyotes moved into the area and the tiny deer disappeared. There are plenty of white tails and if you look up when you walk in the woods every so often you will see a deer carcass up in a tree. We now have pumas.

 

One of the joys of nature is the surprises. You never know what you will find. Keep your eyes open and Good Luck, Rick

I wasn't questioning "who" said it.. was just wondering if it was different folks with different ideas... Seems it is.  I find it interesting how we all differ on our believes right down to the smallest of things...

In Iowa it is not legal to harvest a white Deer. There was a white doe often seen around the 159-160 mile markers(for 5 yrs) on I80 between Colfax and Newton. Her fawns were piebald. But she got hit by a car and killed two years ago.

We have an 8ft. game fence around the hayyard to keep the deer out, but always put one of the better alfalfa bales outside the fence for the deer. They used to make a heck of a mess jumping up on the rowed hay and peeing on it. Have never seen an albino but did have a piebald one a couple of years ago. Years back we saw a white crow in with a flock of black ones.
