    Albino Deer Sighting in Crown Point

    In all my years of deer hunting, about 30 years, I have never once seen an albino deer.

    The other day, a buddy of mine in Crown Point forwarded a photo of an albino deer, that another buddy of his in Crown Point looked out the window and just saw it laying in his back yard!

    Don't know what the chances are of that, but must be "purdy dern slim".

    Beautiful freak of nature.

    We were in Lemont Ill. about 20 years ago to purchase a Doberman when the subject of Argonne's white deer came up. White deer were common in that area since some stray off Argonne's 7,000 acre facility.

    I've been seeing photos of that deer in Crown Point on Facebook for a while now. She's a beauty.

    I used to see some when I was going to work, every day for 3 days. Someone posted it on Fakebook and they moved.

    That is an awesome sight to see in the back yard.

    Discussion:

    The first AKC registered shepherd's grandfather was a white sheep dog, bred for herding. There's 2 genes in the hair follicle. If one is dominant over the other, the dog is white. And both parents would have to carry the dominant gene. If the other gene is dominant, dog is black.
    I know a deer is not a dog, but it may be the same science. For black or white deer, there would probably have to parents to carry the same dominant gene. It would be luck of the draw for both parents to have the same dominant gene.

    I'm not sure exactly how many are involved in deer but the genes that cause albinism and melanism(black) are definitely recessive, hence the rarity. These abnormal colorations may be locally more common in some places (melanistic deer inthe hill country of Texas for example), especially where inbreeding is common.

    But what causes the "palomino" deer (white with brown spots) that sometimes appear? I used to see a lot of them near the gun range in Bloomington.
    With so many places beating dicks I think it's gonna hurt dicks bad.
