Saw this on the national forest service facebook page. Pretty cool, but it looks like lion food.
pretty neat! Hope it gets to make it to the adult stage. Probably a cousin to the great white buffalo!
Saw this albino two days in a row last week while rifle hunting out there. About the same size as its mother now. Hope it can make it till adulthood. The thought I had was how much it probably stands out in a full moon phase at night. Kind of like a neon sign. Of course I forgot I had a camera along.
Guess I'm kind of slow but I see now the forest service picture was in 2015, I saw this one last week and I would swear it is a juvenile. Running with another fawn and a large doe.
Here's a crappy pic of one from earlier this year. Pretty cool to see! Hopefully no one shoots it and we get to see what it grows up to be!

Anyone know if that deer was killed last year?
I certainly did not see it out there this year. My guess is some type of predator killed it, either four legs or two.
