    I have several deer that feed in my backyard on a daily basis; everything from large does and bucks to everything in between. Because it is such a common occurrence there isn't much that really grabs my attention - until about a half an hour ago. This is a first for me. I assume it's a true albino being it appears to have white hooves and pink eyes. Pretty cool if you ask me.

    How cool!!!

    Odds- 1 in 20,000, or 1 in 30,000+ (depending on which study you read).

    Wow. I haven't seen an albino deer for many years. Good shooting, Keith!

    Wow, that's cool. Wonder if it will be a regular feeder in your yard. We have a lot of deer around here. Saw some huge non typical but never an albino.

    Very cool to see. Unfortunately, that deer is going to have a hard time surviving. You could always give it a camo paint job and improve it's odds.

    It's illegal to shoot them in TN, but it looks to be 100% legal in the OP's home state of MI...

    Yep, she sticks out like a sore thumb. Likely won't last long.

    Very cool, on the sena a army depot not far from where I live there's a whole population of white deer. The ones here are not albinos for years they were locked in behind a high fence and the white gene dominated. The fences are for the most part gone and the white deer are not as common to see nowadays, it is a very cool thing to see!

    There's been one near my dads house for years. A few weeks ago, my step mom saw it with a white baby.

    Well maybe if you did the math for an albino goat because you did the math for an albino deer and you're wrong
