He is still there, I saw him this weekend. What a cool thing to see, and he is right off the highway just west of Meeker. He stays on private land and is a pet for the entire town. The town marshal was pulled off looking at him when I drove by.
Nice buck.... As far as i know in washington at least. it is leagal to shoot an albino animal but frowned upon....for several reasons like they are so rare and possibley other bad genetic traits...but i am not sure.
There was an albino-ish deer in E. WA when I lived there that I wanted to bag. It seems at the time (word of mouth) that albino deer were protected. I think to get the last word you would need to call the local gammie - and even that might not be the last word.
Rather than spend my hard earned pennies on those cool Shoot-N-See targets or even the preprinted targets at sporting goods stores, I save a few bucks for weekend plinking sessions by using paper plates as targets. A 100 count pack of paper plates costs less than a 10 count pack of preprinted targets.
If you are playing with something like a semi auto AK, or building a young shooters confidence with a 22 or shotgun, those big eight inch blanks are perfect for putting holes in all...
