wow! Is it albino? I've never seen nor heard of a white deer before.
I know for sure the one out by the river is.. This one I dont know. Hes a lot smaller than the other one by the river. I saw this one last year and my brother told me I was crazy.. He must have a HOME in this area because this is the same spot I saw him last year.

We have someone that lives around here that raises them. It is really strange to drive down a US highway and see herds of white deers.

Now I am on a mission to spot the albino deer in our woods that the neighbor's have seen. They told me that they saw one early in the morning but I did not take it to serious. I do know there are deer in our woods because I have seen their tracks. Gosh it would be very neat to see this!!!!

Funny, I went to visit my nephew today and there is an albino deer around where they live. I haven't managed to see it yet.

wow...very cool. I've never seen one!

When we were in Alaska we saw some Sitka white tailed dear..(i think thats the right name) and they were smaller than a lab, full grown! Tiny little things....but i never saw a white one.
I agree...it's a good omen 8)

Well, they'll be easier to see at night when they're crossing the roads, so I'm all for it. ;D

The parents deers must be related or something because I have never seen a white deer and they are never really talked about in nature shows.
I've heard of them before. There are probably many more of them now surviving to adulthood since there are few predators for deer. They do not blend in like the normally pigmented deer (obviously) and would be easily picked off when there were lots of natural predators in the woods.

I live in Northern Wisconsin and so far in my life I have seen two out in the wild. First one was so close on the side of the road we could see its pink eyes and nose. The other we saw was in Boulder Junction, WI. they are fairly common up in that area, many sitings each year. They were both 100% albino's. By my house we also have deer called pibalds( I could be spelling that wrong), they are normal color deer with white markings on them, very cool to see.
I feel very lucky to have seen the albinos, not many people get as lucky as us to see them out in the wild.
