Yes! As others have stated a melanistic deer is more rare than an Albino!. The albino is a genetic rarity of less than 1/2 % of the population. Piebalds are about 2-3 % and a melanistice is less than the albino. For some reason, most of the melanistics are in Texas! See this site for more inof:

Thanks for the picture!! A great looking animal and I'd love to have one to mount, with pride in my home.

I have never even heard of anyone even seeing a black deer like that. This site is the only place I have seen pictures. I think that I would get a full body mount.

well said model772... i would pass this one up and take a pic... it may be a "nice mount", but this may be some of the reason they are rare, ecause when anyone sees it, the think about their living room...

To play devil's advocate, B & C bucks are very rare too. Would you pass them up?

I've seen some real real dark brown deer and even piebalds, but I have never seen a black one. I guess everything is getting to be equal rights. Bobby

That is a very cool pic. I never, or heard of, a black deer. That is really cool. Really nice rack to. To the guy who said let it walk and take a pic, well most ppl don't carry cameras in the woods, and other people could still see it, this person just has to invite the people over her house to see it.

Like someone else said it does look like a cross between a bull and a deer. Very nice though.
