Default Albino/White Deer question?

How many have you seen one in the wild? Any pics to post? Legal to kill in your state?Killed one?
Here in Wisconsin a proposal is up for approval to legally shoot one in the now 1 CWD unit.
Before it was Disease Eradication Zone and Herd Reduction Zone which are now combined.

Never seen one in the wild.

Illegal to shoot in IL. (Doesn't really make sense.)

OK to shoot one in MO.

Would you kill her drop if you had the opportunity?

That does sound like a great hunt. I have been pondering myself on if I had the opportunity would I do it.
As of right now probably not as my family would be dissappointed in me. Also just to see that in itself
would be cool and would love more sightings for sure. Thanks for the perspective pal.

Legal. Yes....I would kill it. No regrets. It's just another deer.

The albino deer or "white stag" as its known here is a very symbolic creature and is enshrined in our mythical beliefs. One was filmed a couple of months ago (probably in the Highlands) but its location has remained secret because of poaching. The people of Scotland wanted to keep this beautiful stag alive so its illegal to kill it. It is ofgreat sigificance to us but outsiders will never understand what it means to see it alive.

On the other hand I have no problem with killing of piebalds or any other white deer but not our white stags.
