Default Albino bucks

we have an albino buck on our property that just shed is 5 year old rack. he would score 186 typical with a 21" inside spread. he is an absolute monster. in wisconsin you cannot shoot albinoes otherwisei would have shot him as a 3 1/2 yr old. as a mid 150's i had him under my tree for 20 minutes. i did get great footage. i will post pictures soon. what do you know about albinoes? any facts or information would be appreciated.

Thank God I live in Texas. Down here he would be mounted and on the wall....LOL. In general albinos are genetically weaker animals. They can have all kinds of issues but the most common is poor eye sight.

I would think so. If he is physically able to stay in the chase I don't see why he could not get a little here and there.

well once i show you the pictures you will know why i am curious about passing on genetics. at age 3 he was mid 150's, age 4 he was 181" (based on sheds and a 20"spread) and at age 5 he was 186 or so (again based on sheds). he is truly an amazing buck.

That is a good law.... I think they should do that to the rest of the states. I see them as a unique kind of deer. Some of us hunter would like to see them up close too.

Wolf651 why is a law that protects an inferior animal good?
