Wish I had a camera yesterday evening. 6:00 yesterday evening at 32 mile rd. and welding (North side of 32 just East of the junkyard) were what appeared to be 1 albino deer, and 2 piebald!!! I have never seen them in person before so I thought I would share. I assume that it is rare to see that amount of mutant deer together???? I wonder if the junkyard has anything to do with it?

I seen three all white deer around Irons Michigan this spring twice, also heard they had a buck in the group last fall that somebody shot and only took the head and left the rest in the woods. Makes you wonder what makes people tick sometimes.

Yeah its no big deal I see them alot up at my place!

I think it is a big deal! I don't remember what are the odds of a doe giving birth to a complete albino but It is up there. Rare at best.

In my lifetime I've seen 1 very cool piebald doe, and zero albino anythings, in the wild. I think the sightings are a big deal, and very cool.

Saw the piebald one again last night... from 15 feet away. she looks really mangey.... must be close to getting rid of that heavy winter coat. Now if I could just coax them over to my hunting area.

A few years ago i was driving home from work. i got off I75 at south huron river drive. as soon as i was on the off ramp i saw two deer. the one was almost all white, had a little color, wasnt a true albino the other was pure white. i couldnt tell if it had the pink nose or blue eyes, so i couldnt tell if it was a true albino or not.i've also been on my deer stand in the fall and ive seen an albino turkey in the woods which was a shock. it was with the rest of the "normal" flock of birds.
