    Has anybody seen anything like this in a red deer before?
    We met him roaring away this weekend. Never been seen before. Apparently a flecked hind was shot in the area five years ago. I know there are reports of this in roe. Is it genetic, are they born this way (if so I would be surprised if it hadn't been spotted before), can it occur and throw a normal coat the next year? I have heard of a hand reared fox with a white coat that grew a normal coat the following year.

    It's evolution.... they're getting cammo'd up to stay one step ahead of us.

    You got one o' them there red deer x dalmation crosses......

    (Unusual beast there - are you going to have it mounted? Make for an unusual trophy!)

    Definitely one for a shoulder mount.

    I am no expert but I am sure this would be considered very rare indeed??

    Cheers

    I encountered a mule deer buck like that about 15 years ago. They are known for appearing in this region of Montana and are considered a trophy. ~Muir

    Wow! what a superb whole body or shoulder mount that one would make. I sincerely hope it was kept for mounting as that is as rare as rocking horse .... send it up to me for a good mount deal - real shame it was shot though....

    He would have been a beggar to see in a broken snow-line. I bought some cammo like this last year.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    partial albinism through lack of melanin producing cells in the white areas.
    Good cull animal as it is a genetically transferred trait
