It's not illegal in Minnesota. It is in Wisconsin.

I could be wrong, but a buck is a buck. You get one in the cross hairs, pull the trigger.

I am going over regs right now to see if it is illegal or not.

Every time a big buck is shot there is always speculation on if a store or magazine is going to pay for the story and the mount.

It is not illegal in MN to shoot an Albino Deer!

why is it people are always killing threads, do some research before you start questioning the illegality of a situation.

How am I killing a thread? I didnt think it was legal, either did the guy who posted it! I didnt say it was illegal! I just said I didnt think it was, I hunt Wisconsin so where I hunt it is illegal.

Last time I checked this story was not in Wisconsin. I should add I am a little salty this morning... It does bother me though when people are always looking for violations in every posting. Than the originator needs to explain why it wasn't illegal...Just never ends. Sorry if I offended you.

I think he means you are killing this thread, because your responce was not that aggresive grin.gif. The more aggresive responces keep threads rolling for ever crazy.gif.

I thought you had good questions! They were questions and that is what this site is for, to ask questions and get answers .

I think comments like

We can agree to disagree than. Recently there was a posting about a woman being circled by a big cat, that discussion became more about whether or not she should have been hunting with a crossbow than about the cat. It happens all the time.

Was not sure about that myself, I believe there was regs put in about "white" bears a few years back? May have been a temperary regulation. They saw one up by Orr at the bear preserve up there. Not sure it it is law or not? 10 years ago.

I see you point on the Cougar thread!

I see two kinds of threads that invoke two different kinds of replies by my self.

The cougar story was a fellow F.M.er who posted a thread post about a personal situation in his life. That’s were I will post a "that’s to bad", or "Great story" and leave it at that. Itry not cut down or question a fellow F.M.er, or stop questioning when some one hones into a thread that has a personal stake in the story.

Now when there is a post with a link to another story about a person who has nothing to do with F.M. and there is a questionable story or story line with questions added to it, ask away, question away. That’s how I see it.

Plus this thread has the question asked in the opening post.

I also didn't notice that the question was part of the original post. My bad. Certainly this is a website that is a great place to go for questions, since it was a question from the original poster I was the pain in the butt on this thread.

On other threads though when it is not part of the original post I stand by my opinion.

Ok no offense taken, but back to the story. It would be very exciting to see an albino deer when in the woods, I am happy she seen it, good for her that she got a buck!

Now I personally dont agree with shooting an albino deer, I myself wouldnt have, but since it is legal in MN, that is cool with me. Congrats at getting a once in a life time deer to her!

That's a rare treat to get an albino. I'd put a picture on my wall and sell the hide and rack in a heartbeat. That is if my arrow went through the vitals!

My buddy that lives by Warroad area said that a guy up there shot an Albino deer. It was a yearling and he is getting a full body mount which I think is pretty cool idea.....but expensive!!!

Now I'm not tryn 2 "kill the thread" by going kinda off topic, but if an albino deer mates, what are the chances of making more albinoes?

I do not know the answer to your question but I can tell you that the area I took the photo has produced quite a few albino’s, so I am guessing it can pass at a higher percentage than some would think…

Albinism is a recessive allele, both parents have to carry it. That area has a high allele frequency for this genetic disorder. At one time there was a buck with this defect, probably bred a lot of does, giving the offspring the gene. The following year, if he bread any of his "daughters, they both would carry, or if any of his sons bred any of their "half sister" they would have a about a 25 percent chance of having an albino.

I may have missed the location. Where was this albino deer shot up north? Reason I ask is I saw one on Saturday. Was the cooliest thing I ever seen. Was running through the woods when one of our guys kicked it up on his way in to camp to warm up. We are located north of Williams up near Baudette. Hope it's still out in the woods as a return trip is already planned!! wink.gif

Correct. Albino, white, and piebald deer are all legal in Minnesota. Just about every year there's someone in the legislature that proposes protecting them. Who knows what the future will bring.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
