me and a buddy from work went out to creve coeur achery range in the woods and were coming out about 4:45 tonight....and what do i see walking 40 yards in front of me?

An albino doe!~

I almost crapped myself after seeing it, and grabbed the phone to get a few quick photos. It went out in a little field and me and my buddy went to the edge of it and watched her and the three other does and 8 pointer (still both sides attached) for a little bit with my binoculars.

I plan on taking out the digital camera and getting some good pictures of her. I saw a thing on the local news awhile back of one and didnt realize where the picture was taken, (my buddy filled me in). It caught me totally offguard and i would never expect to see one like that .........especially in a wooded archery range!:cheers:

i just thought id share my unexpected excitement:)

I just hope someone doesnt take her out, or having a "miss" on the archery range.:eek:

If you ever go to Bethel MO, stop by the Festhall. They have an albino deer mounted on the wall in a glass case! It's really awesome!

Legacy, the archery range sits on the hill above Creve Coeur Lake, take 270 to Dorsett and head west until you hit a T in the road, make a right and it will be on your left

Boy, that's something you don't see advertised everyday! Just harrasing you chuck, I grew up around there as well, no most of the story around that ole boy!

MrB--- If I shot a real albino I would want it to be mounted like it looked in the wild... with pink eyes and nose, ect.

Was this pictured buck a true albino? Or...?

I dunno... I'm just nit-picking. :pop:
