11-year-old hunter bags rare albino deer

While it was once illegal to kill albino deer, it is perfectly legal now in Michigan as of 2008.

This amendment –

Removal of Protection for Albino and All-White Deer Wildlife Conservation Order Amendment No. 8 of 2008 removes the protection for albino and all-white deer, and establishes the open/closed status for antlerless deer license sales for each DMU.

It is burdensome to the hunter to determine if a deer is an albino deer or meets the definition of an all-white deer while afield. There is no compelling scientific reason to protect these deer.

Details of the deer killed by an Oceola Twp. youngster are here…
