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


See y’all around the campfire.

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.

Yes I would since they are not a normal whitetail that you would want started in your herd.

Deer have been "importing" themselves across our borders from NM, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and LA for generations already.

Same here.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

It would have to be a Mature "TROPHY" to me, and the location and circumstances would come into play as well.

We have seen one on our lease. I don't think she is an albino because she hasn't always been that way. She has gotten whiter each year, this was last year. She started with just the white on top of her head. Never has a fawn with her. She is at least 6 years old
