Yep, a rare deer isn' t necessarily a genetically healthy deer. Let' s manage deer responsibly for the good of the population.

Well that' s my opinion and I' m sticking to it. I' m sure many other ethical hunters will feel the same. I wonder why some states make it illegal if there' s nothing wrong with hunting them. I guess you' d also kill the white moose that Spiegal posted the pics of. I think the concept of " fair chase" edited out-inticeing precludes taking a defenseless animal and one of the deer' s main defenses is the ability to blend in to the background. I would not kill or defend the hunter that would kill a buck locked into another, nor would I kill or defend the hunter that would kill a buck at night with a light, nor would I kill or defend the hunter that kills a penned animal, nor would I kill or defend the hunter that would kill a buck who was unfortunately robbed of one of his only two defenses - the other being his speed. What if for some reason the deer was robbed of its ability to run away, say like a cow, would you hunt it? I might think it is your post that is absurd. That doesn' t make me right or you wrong - it' s an opinion. I would not kill the white buck, I' ll leave that up to you. gg.

I am sorry i just have to add my 2cents worth. I see nothing wrong with taking a white deer. You say it was not fair because the deer did not have the natural defense of blending into the background. Does that mean that you shouldn' t shoot a brown or black deer when there is snow on the ground? They would not be protected by blending into the background would they.

There is absolutly nothing wrong at all with taking a deer no matter if it was white, pink, or purple. You' re out there hunting for the purpose of harvesting an animal. I don' t see what differance it' s color makes.

I' m sure many other ethical hunters will feel the same. I wonder why some states make it illegal if there' s nothing wrong with hunting them. I guess you' d also kill the white moose that Spiegal posted the pics of. .
So I guess you are grouping all of us as unethical hunters? Ethics has nothing to do with taking an albino deer. It' s a deer and it walked to within shooting distance just like any other deer in the woods could have.

I think the concept of " fair chase" (have you heard of it?) precludes taking a defenseless animal and one of the deer' s main defenses is the ability to blend in to the background.
Fair chase defines the ethical hunting of free ranging wild animals not the color of its hair.

nor would I kill or defend the hunter that would kill a buck who was unfortunately robbed of one of his only two defenses - the other being his speed
Maybe you haven' t been hunting very long, I don' t know, but deer have many more defences than color and speed. Such as hearing, sight, smell and their instincts.

If there were the predators around that used to be around before we (humans) took everything over that buck wouldn' t have made it past being a spike before it would have been killed and eaten. He' s lucky he made it to be as big as he was and obviously lived a healthy life.
Congratulations to the hunter that harvested this fine whitetail buck.

ive heard the same thing about shooting an albino. whats the difference bettween an albino and a non-albino? NOTHING! id shoot it, then id get it mounted. i knew this guy that used to say to me every year, if you shoot an albino, dont bring it around here cus your not welcome anymore. my response was, " your an idiot!"

Hey whether the deer is white or brown its still a DEER, Its a personal thing to shoot or not to. ya maybe it has a genetic flaw, but dam, he looks very healthy from my screen!! When it comes to ' ETHICS' if your hunting in an area where there is an animal that nobody will shoot for what ever reason, then there' s your ethics dont shoot it. If that deer was lounging under my apple tree behind my house, you bet your rump hes gonna die,mount the head and put rest into freezer!!---AS you stated hunters need to stay together, true,BUT when there isnt that ' HUNTERS CODE OF ETHICS' its all personal choice!! ME BANG--
AS for Spiegal' s moose, nobody else has stated yes or no. Maybe its just me but there seems to be a big differance between that moose and that deer. I dont have a moose tag.
