When deer hunting season starts Saturday in Hanover, whitetails will be in the hunters' sights, but two white deer named Snowflake and Snowball better not be. Deer culling is a top priority in the Morris County town because the animals destroy plants, carry ticks and cause car accidents, yet the 20 recreational bow hunters lined up for the task have been asked to spare two mostly white deer that have become favorites among township residents.

white deer are defective and should be culled first.

piebald deer are somewhat common at the old Seneca Army depot in Romulus NY

Hang on now! Didn't you read the article??

"I'd describe them as almost looking spiritual." said said Mayor Ron Francioli.

Is it *legal* to hunt deer with a machine gun in your state?

New Jersey law gives no special treatment to albino or piebald deer. Neither do hunters, said Anthony Mauro, chairman of the New Jersey

We had a couple living in the forest on my grandparents north woods farm back in the 30's-40's. We called them "Ghost Deer" - which is what the Indians called them.

My grampa was a Maine Guide. No one killed a ghost deer.

Now, in the area I live today, There's a big white buck that comes through my woods. The locals know he's here - but no one talks about him and no one would shoot him.

Just because there's an opportunity to grab - or kill - something, doesn't mean it's right.

This is going to create human driven evolution to white / albino deer.

Clear case of suicide by hanging if you ask me. The key is the granny knot in the rope.

There is a website that shows how you can load large shot into a cannon and take out deer with it. This picture came from that site.

BTW, note my .sig. Here's where the deer came from www.buckstix.com/HowitzerHunt.htm. I have no affiliation with them. I just I think that's the best picture to show PETA types.

12 rounds, eh. Looks nasty. Then again, you’re showing the 12” model... by the time you put an 18” (legal) barrel on it, cool looking or not, it seems “no advantage” over my Mossberg combat shotgun (9 rounds in the gun plus 4 in the butt).

But damn, it looks bad!

Did that deer walk through a trip line attached to a Claymore mine?

Spoils too much meat.

The White Stag was an old medieval legend. He gave you wishes if you caught him.

And Kate Seredy wrote a book about the White Stag -- it was seen as the spiritual guide of the Hungarians, I think.

Lots of people might have sound traditional reasons for not shooting one.
