Shoot it if you want, stuff it if you want; they aren't special. Yea, they are rare, but they are deer. I just missed a chance at a 6 pt piebald one year. A hunter just around the hill shot him. If that hunter wasn't there, he was heading right to me and I would have shot him.

Yes, I agree with syrupman, shoot if you want. It's not a defective deer. My son shot a big NH piebald doe 2 years ago. Very cool for sure.

Its not a skin pigment as much as it is a different color in fur.

The Pennsylvania native Indians believed that it was bad luck to shoot a albino deer. Then again, we cheated them out of their land 300 years ago - so how smart did that make them?

I say shoot it if your going to do something with it. I never saw one so, I shot this one last year. Kinda torn about it. I got the entire cape/hide tanned for 110 dollars. So if I decide to get a shoulder mount, I can.

So bottom line is it didnt mean enough for me to get it mounted, but mattered enough to make sure I have the option one day.

if it was me and it was a "albino" i would not shot it....they are very rare atleast in PA where i live...i would much rather leave it go and give others the chance to see it...ya im sure some of you are going to say well if you dont shot it the next guy will...that might be true but my opinion i would just let it go....

Piebalds are pretty cool. I don't think I'd shoot one, never had the chance. I did shoot a deer in KY that had white "socks" on its front legs. The white came up at least 6 inches on both legs.

I don't care if they are defective or not, shooting them is not going to cure any problem in the herd.
