Has any Rifle Hunters had any luck ? So far the rifle season has been uneventful. I passed up on a couple smaller bucks in hopes of something nice and to let the kids have some better chances to tag one. Has anyone seen this guys beautiful deer pics ?



The story is that the owner of Cabela's
 paid him $13,000 for the head and hide.

There are always a few piebalds taken in Michigan every year.   Back in the mid 70's I got one with only one small patch of brown on the rump

I've only seen one piebald in person, it was a large spike with a large white patch on its rump and side. It wasn't a pretty deer.

The one pictured is one of the prettiest ones I've ever seen a picture of. I'd be willing to bet this animal will be full body mounted, its beautiful!

Your not kidding about that guys deer being beautiful. It is no brainer for a mount in anyones trophy room. It is a tasty offer but unless I was hard up and needed the cash I would have to decline Cabela's offer. You just don't get one that pretty very often. I see three different pieballs around my place in our clover fields they all have very little colored spots and the rest all white. We will not shoot them just because they are neat to look at. Just as it is getting dark they glow with the least amount of moon light. I nicknamed them, Casper's Family. The one hangs out near the white bee hives in another set of fields near our orchard trees. When it is Dawn or Dusk the only thing that you can see is the hives and old Casper, 1/2 before it is light enough to see any other deer.

I had the chance to shoot a piebald doe once.  I was a guest at another club and did not know how they would feel about me bagging it, so I let it walk. Later at the camp I was told that I should have killed it because it tainted the gene pool. True?

By the way, she was beautiful.

why?  does the meat taste different?

we had some deer here that were marked like paint ponies.  i have not seen them for a couple of years.  i'm sure someone couldn't resist those unusual hides.  they were something to see, and i miss them.  still.....once they were in the pot, i'm sure they tasted the way all deer do.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Yes, they were probably correct. If you ever observe the growth as they become of mature age you will notice that they are normally a bit smaller. That being said, I also know that from the ones I have seen that breed with good genes of another group provide, unique color markings on the hide and the offspring seem to be of normal size. One of the pieballs around my house had a fawn this year that was of totally normal colors and was soon to be equal in size of mom as spots started to fade.

We have a total albino roaming our area.  So far, it has been protected by everyone.  I'd like to think that's due to me spreading the word that in my culture it is considered a sacred animal, a messenger from the Creator, but it's more likely that people just like to watch it.   Undecided

I got this piebald doe season before last in KY.  I didn't notice any genetic deformaties besides the color.  The meat was the same as a regular deer.  I tanned the hide to save it Smiley

Years ago i probably would have let a deer like that walk just so i could see it another day.  That being said the fact that my neighbor let's every Tom, Dick, and Harry hunt on his place i now take anything i get the chance to shoot within the law of course.  I figure if the deer are thinned out enough i won't be running every Tom, Dick, and Harry off our farm that doesn't know what a posted sign or a fence means.

I think its a recessive trait, doesnt hurt anything except the critters chance of making it thru gun season.  Without snow they sure stand out...  my brother had his picture taken at a taxidermist place where he had the most beautiful piebald buck I have ever seen...   solid white at the top of its back and dappled into solid brown legs, it was a very well racked 10 pointer also.   The full body mount was unbelievably beautiful.
