Piebalds and albinos are illegal to shoot here in OK. If you want to shoot it next year make sure you check your regs.

If she walked out in front of me during bow season I would call her.... Supper!. :D

I've never seen one in person. Isn't a big cause of that inbreeding?.

I don't think the Piebold, Albino or Melanistic deer has anything to do with inbreeding. It is the same in humans, it is just a genetic anomaly.

I see. I don't know much about them. I always see them in photo's with whitetails. I don't think I've ever seen a Muley Piebald deer. I am gonna ask my local Biologist next time I see him. I'm curios now.

Do they say pure albino or white deer? The reason being that a pure albino has pink eyes. Hooves and muzzle are usually pink also. Pretty hard to distinguish unless you use binocular.
