Check this out. I came across this on another forum andhave never seen anything like it. It is an incredible looking deer.

Did you not read it? Apparently you just looked at the pics huh? It's not called a "Calico" but is called a piebald deer. Uncommon but more common than a white, albino or melanistic (black) deer.

I hunted a piebald doe exclusively one season, had her at 50 yards 5 times (bow only) and never saw her again.

I've seen several.

Whatever it's called, it's COOL! I'd be taking donations to have a full body mount of that bad boy!

In Northern VA where I worked for several years there was a bunch of Piebald deer. 30+ in one big group. I took a pic on the gold course next to our building but it was a cheap digital (its been years ago) and the pic was hard to see.

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. They were very overpopulated there. I also go to see a nice buck(smaller than the one in the article you posted) but nice. I was distracted enough I almost didn't see the BIG buck standing behind him. Unfortunatly never saw them while hunting... They are cool to see though.
