Albino mule deer

Here is a link to http://www.ktvb.com/home/Rare-white-deer-spotted-in-Boise-foothills-93027089.html

Haven't heard of any more sightings since this came out in the news.

Is it illegal in Oklahoma

Is it illegal in Oklahoma because they are rare? I would also love to see one in the wild. It would be kinda cool to have an albino deer with a hudge rack on the wall too.

Albino mule deer

I've seen many pictures before, along with other species, but never seen one in person. Interesting, thanks.

I would live to see any albine animal in the wild.  Here is CO, there is noththing that says you cant shoot them,  but I think I would have to pass on one....may shoot it with my camera though.

It would be a tough choice if

It would be a tough choice if one walked out in front of you and it was legal. Very tough. There was one killed here befor it was illegal and it was so muddy and dirty the guy didnt even know it till he washed it off after field dressing it. It was a piebald. With only some white spots on it. Not a albino.

I've been lucky enough to see

I've been lucky enough to see a few albino's here in Wisconsin.  They really stick out in the alfalfa fields in the summer.  It's illegal to shoot albino's in Wisconsin too, but piebald's are free game.  Here is a piebald doe that I passed up 2 years ago, she was a regular on this farm that year and I never seen her afterwards.  They are a pretty cool animal to see.

Totally cool being able to get a pick of an albino in the wild. I've only ever seen pics of them before. I would love to see one in the wild.
