I saw an albino deer many years ago up north when I was a young whipper snapper.

Cool looking Moose.

I have only seen one moose in my lifetime. I was driving on the Gunflint with my wife looking for moose. We drove all the way up and we started heading back when we turned a corner and there was a huge cow about 20yds in front of my car eek.gif. Coolest thing I have ever seen! grin.gif

I am not sure. I don't think it is. I remember seeing a pic of a person that harvested one probably a couple of years ago NW of Mille Lacs Lake.

Those pics are amazing. Thanks for sharing. The locker plant in St.Joe has a full body mount of a albino doe laying down in a glass encasement that is pretty cool also. Was shot near St.John's university just down the road.

As long as it has a spot (dime size even) of brown, it is not considered an albino and can be taken. That's my understanding anyway.

there is not a law protecting albino deer in the state of MN....wisconsin on the other hand there is a law preventing you from shooting an albino

It is not illegal to kill an albino deer in minnesota. Actually i have heard that they would like to see them killed. They are Genetic Defects. A person in our party killed an albino last year. we saw it maybe twice in the summer before season.

Not one, but two ! Truly amazing ! These animals were photographed just north of the Wisconsin border on a highway near Marenisco , MI .

Once in awhile there is an opportunity to take in a piece of nature that you may never see. In these days of unrest and turmoil it is great to see that Mother Nature can still produce some wondrous beauty.

Great pics! It IS NOT ILLEGAL to harvest an albino deer in Minnesota. It is, however, illegal to harvest an albino deer in Wisconsin as they are protected.

UMDSportsman- Where do you hunt? I see you said someone harvested an albino in your party, just curious as to where as I see you have two towns listed. Thanks!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
