Two Beautiful Albino Deer

I took these pictures of two Albino deer. The one on the right was the Mother and she had a fawn. I have seen one in the wild before also a Piebald, but I have never seen two together. The Chances of seeing an Albino Deer in the wild is about 1 in 100,000 which can be found online. It is said that you have a better chance of finding a piece of Gold in a stream than to see an Albino Deer in your lifetime. We have seen three this year. Do you think the chances are rising?

Thanks,
Ashley Prince

yes, the chances are rising because it is actually illegal in most states to shoot an albino deer. So, the numbers are going to increase more and more each year. I saw a video on youtube of a herd of 7 deer and they were all albino.

It's not illegal in PA to shoot them and the numbers aren't rising. There are always a couple around.

boy do they look delicious

Andy said...

They should make it a criminal offense with jail time if it isn't that yet....there will be some jerk out there that can't appreciate a beautiful site and have to shoot one of them...then we hunt them down and hang them up by their toes!!!!

i would love to try a white one, i know the brown ones are delicious

Actually albinism is not a desirable genetic trait and often comes with other genetic problems so it would be better to take them out of the gene pool. However, it's difficult to tell whether these are true albinos. They are beautiful though!

Simply Amazing!!!

Thanks for your comment, Andy. I thought Anonymous was the only person reading & responding on this website!

Ashley: GREAT job with the photography! Wish I could have seen them in person myself, but this is the next best thing! Thanks!

Don't you readers in Potter County have more imagination with coming up with a pseudonym than using ANONYMOUS over and over again! Come on folks -- I know all of you attended SOME schooling! If you use any OTHER name that isn't your own, people will STILL not know who you are, and you'll REMAIN anonymous! It looks like only person person comments!

They say its bad luck to shot an albino deer

Mmmmmmmmmmm I can almost taste the Venison Sausage! They better look out, Archery comes in this weekend in PA.MmmmMmmmmmMmmmmmmmm...

The other, other white meat.

True albinos have pink eyes and noses. These two aren't albinos.
It's ridiculous to say that the state should somehow protect these deer because they're white. That's a racist way to look at deer.

Rob Giebel said...

I'm an avid hunter, love venison, and I would not shoot these deer. There are plenty of deer in the woods. Most of the people that I hear complaining about the lack of deer are the ones that don't want to walk more than the 150 yards that is mandatory from the road to be legal. I would pass on these, even if it meant not having any venison in the freezer this year. They are beautiful and these are great pics. Thanks for sharing!

mike daniels says they look delicious. there not a beautiful thing, they are a gentic screw up. if you tree huggers knew anything about anything you would know this. why dont you tree huggers and animal lovers try wipping your asses with something other than toilet paper and see how it works out for ya. i dont know abought the rest of you but i would much rather eat a deer than beef or chicken from the store thats all jacked up on steriods, wonder why were all droping dead of cancer

Just wondering where about did you see these. I thought I saw one this summer but my husband said I was crazy. Thanks for letting me rub it in!

the location is not needed here if you saw one then you saw one...now why do you need a location when someone on here is being an idot

Anonymous said...

yeah the location of these deer are not needed to be known as you can read the above comment's. it's best the picture taker keep's that to herself but thank's for sharing the picture's

To PotterFan 67: What business is it of yours if people don't want to sign their name to their coments. You must be a flatlander and if you don't like the people in Potter County stay where you live and leave everyone here alone.

Anonymous said...

Shooting them may not be illegal but, it does not come without consequence. Lore has it that if you do shoot one, you will never have good hunting luck thereafter. Personally I think that it would be putting them out of their misery as they will never have the ability to hide from their predators unless the ground is snow covered. This probably being the most predominant reason why you see so few of them. And yes, without "pink" eyes they are not true albino. Regarding the thoughts of reproduction, unless both parents are albino, the chances of their offspring also being albino is near to none.

Great pictures... I absolutely loved them and would like to see them myself. However, please do NOT advertise where you took the shots as I am sure it would entice hunters to shoot them just for their hides.

Hey Anonymous: I don't see that anyone ever said that you HAD to sign YOUR own personal name to your post. Using Anonymous over and over again is just a way to hide like everyone else. You can write Joe Schmoe if you want! And I'm not a flatlander either!

"PotterFan 67" is no more of a "name" than "anonymous" is. Why don't you post your "name" if you are going to challenge the right of anonymity. We are no more "anonymous" than you are with a name like that. You could link your online profile to it if anyone was actually interested in looking at it and still keep your "handle" and have the right to whine about anonymity. Hell. you even bitched at the people that were choosing "anonymous" and then signing their name at the end. Sounds to me like you just want something to start a little rant like this. Well congratulations, you got it.

When I took the photos they were really far away. I didn't get a close up view of whether they were or weren't true Albinos. The way their eyes are dark could be because I was so far away, also their noses. I just knew they were white Whitetail deer. Which even if they aren't true Albinos, you still don't see them that often. I won't be posting where I saw any of the white/albino deer or whatever they are, because I don't want to see them killed. Even though they are different. They are still beautiful. They are special in their own ways just as if they were humans. Think of it this way would you want to kill off all of the special needs humans in the world because they were different and had a genetic abnormality or because they weren't the right color? I have said enough. I think these deer are beautiful, they are something unusual and different.

I've been in Potter County my whole life and I love hunting and putting Venison in the freezer. I don't think I would shoot the does but put a nice rack on one of these and it's game over and I'll make room on the wall for it. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us.

"Genetic Screw-ups?" Well, there are also albino humans. Are you suggesting that they need to be obliterated from the gene pool also? YOU are a genetiuc screw-up . Thank you for sharing the pictures Ashley. Beautiful! And they should , indeed, be protected. (unlike some of these posters on here.... ought to have open season on THEM)

Not bored, just amused, like you and needing to say what needs to be said in SOME cases.

My grandfather always said that its bad luck to shoot an albino deer; if you do, you’ll never shoot another one in your life. He watched an albino buck behind his house for a couple of years; the guy who shot it was so proud of himself, now he regrets it because he hasn’t been able to shoot anything. His gun jams, the deer get spooked and run. He wished he’d have never shot that white deer.

ASHLE,
You probably will not see this as your post is 2 years old now, but...
We are very lucky, you and I, to have witnessed this rare beauty. I am concerned for people who don't see anything but meat or abnormality.
A pair of albino twins were born here on my farm last year and one is still around. I don't advertize the location for the same reason as you.
I have many photos of them, but can't share them here.
Hope we both will enjoy these gorgeous creatures for years to come.
