I have seen a bunch of controversy about this topic. When people shoot them some people jump all over them. What do yall think, would you shoot an albino if you saw one?

I read an article a while back about this topic. After some thought on the topic, I would not shoot an albino doe. My criteria for shooting an albino buck would be the same for any buck. I would only shoot him if he was a mature (5 years or older) legal buck.

I'd shoot an albino just to see if they have white meat.

I would. This guy shot a nice albino buck in Missouri and a bunch of people are bashing him. It's like why? he shot a legal deer in a legal way and he is happy with it so why do you care. Beating him up isn't going to change anything.

I think I would. And if people don't like it, they can either get over it, or let it ruin their lives.

I doubt I would shoot an albino doe unless I hadn't gotten anything all season and it was after Christmas. But if I saw a legal mature buck you better believe he is goin on the wall

Only if it had a descent rack to go with it.

Most likely but only if it was mature and also had a nice rack on it.

I read several years ago that albinos occur about 1 in 1.5 million. With an overall heard of approx 5 million in Texas that means there are a few running around every year and we hear stories every year. So, are they really that rare?
I was at a hunting show at Will Rodgers in Ft Worth once and a guy had a full body mount of an albino white tail. Looked pretty cool.

Is it true they are bad for the herd? I have read that their senses are all screwed up.

Yep, I would have it at the taxidermist before the next day and there would be no pics of it.
