Default Twin albino whitetails

Maybe, because of my experience with albino deer, I can answer your questions about them. I'm from central Minnesota and I've had twin albino whitetails coming to my backyard feeder since they were fawns back in 2006.
Their mother was brown so I would say yes, brown does can have albino fawns. At least it's the case with my experience.
As far as eyesight, the twins in my yard can see very well. But my farmer buddy has an albino buck on his land that's 5 or 6 years old and it's eyesight is very poor.
If you would like to see more of the albino twins, you can go to this link;
Local TV from Minneapolis did a segment on them from my home. The twins are only 35' from my patio door so the film crew got some great footage. There is some of my own personal video on the show and in that video you can see the twins mother. Look closely to the left of my apple tree. She blends in well with the brown grass but she is visible.

thats awsome! I was told I have a pair in the area I am hunting, but I have yet to see them myself. I dont know much about them I have heard that the buck never realy get much horns most stay spikes. and the buck and doe stay small in size. they are game here in KY and there is one thats a full body mount in a gas station down the road that came from this area like 8 years ago I think the guy said. I feel its a real prize to get the oportunily to see one in the woods( well to me anyways) now if I ever do I dont know if I would shoot or not. I realy dont know untill it happens I think I would just be so amazed at what I was being able to see I would forget I was hunting and pull my cell phone and start getting viedo clips.

ronn,
I took these photos during the winter/spring of 2008. Yes, the twins still visit my feeder today! I haven't seen the doe since this spring but I did got some photos of the buck just before the Minnesota deer opener this year 2008.
Last year this buck had spikes on his head and this year he's a 7 pointer!

I've always wanted to harvest an albino whitetail. After nearly two years of my family going in and out of my home, the twins just stand there and won't run away. This makes the thrill of the hunt, no thrill at all. I mean if your just going to stand there... then just forget it! I'm not shooting.

I'm pretty sure in some areas shooting albino or piebald deer is illegal???

Harvesting albino deer in Minnesota is legal and you would think that would keep them in check. But it doesn't.
There's a state park a few miles from my home and it has 5 albino whitetails that reside there. With "no hunting allowed" in the state park, these albinos continue to thrive.
Of course one of those resident albinos in the park is a buck. I have photos of him but he doesn't have his antlers. I did see a YouTube video of him with his antlers but I don't recall the video number. If you search for the video,there won't be any mistaking his ugly mug! He's a big guy too. He has to be close to 200# if not over. I'll post a second photo of him standing next to other deer so you can compare the body size.
