Yeah it's melanism, there have been a few melanistic deer (I read some place in Texas has a lot of them). The only melanistic animals I've seen in the wild in person are the longnose gar that live in our river...every once in a while there's a black one swimming around. Haven't caught one yet...the line always goes astray after multiple tries and then the fish is gone

As for albinos I've seen 2 whitetails in person this year.

Really nice pictures. The black color is definitely something I've never seen. Almost weird looking in the face, eyes. Thanks for posting!

crazy looking deer! do you know if it's a male/female yet? would be cool to see it grow some antlers next year. I dont know if melanistic deer exist in Tennessee, but if I saw one I would try and shoot it since it's not illegal to kill black deer (only white ones) in TN.

Great pics, thanks for sharing. I've always loved unusual colors and markings on all animals. I don't know if I'd shoot it or not. We have some light gray turkeys here and our regulations say " wild turkey: any dark turkey" So we can't shoot the gray ones, but they are cool to see. Will try to get pics this year.
