The eye color is pink.The vet looked in the eye of my fawn last year and said it looked like a ball of water and all she could see is blood vessels. Albinos have no color to refract light so most have poor eyesight. Our buck was compleatly blind in his right eye but could see a bottle when I approched him on his left side. Pictures are on our web site [url]www.DEERRANCH.com What about value,do they have any.

I do not breed sick deer.Most Albinos have poor eyesight,even human albinos have poor vision.

Deer whisperer,



I have seen the pictures posted on your website. You have a beautiful white fawn, but Sierra is not an albino. She is a seneca white whitetail. This means it is born cream colored and will turn white when it is 1 1/2 yrs old. True albinos are born snow white and have NO VISIBLE SPOTS !!



Many white deer will have blue, grey or even a clear eye that may resemble albinos, but they are not albinos. From the information posted, you are knowledgeable about the color change in the deer's coat as they age. I am guessing that all your white deer have made the same color changes from cream to white. This means that they are not albinos, simply seneca white whitetails.

I have a "White" Maxbo Grandson. He was born 5-5-10 and his buttons are looking awsome. My third biggest button buck. To my knowlage this is the only maxbo genetic buck in the industry. I know Maxbo Surpreme had a piebald full or womb sister at Amos Kauffman's, but i thinknthis is the only Maxbo genetic buuck in the indurtry. Any ideas of any other?

Drew, I have heard of other Maxbo piebalds popping up over the past couple of years. The problem with them is that all the ones I have heard of have had club feet and other deformities such as short legs or roman nose. If yours is healthy, you may have the only breed quality Maxbo piebald/white that I know of. Let me know if you ever draw semen, I would be interested. Give me a call, I would be interested in talking with you when you get a chance. 304-288-4090

wv deerman.

I have to disagree with you on Sierra.OUR VET CONFIRMED that she was a albino and her eyes are pink.I have been raising whitewhitetails for 20 years and have some born pure white and some lite tan until the winter coat comes in.Our first whitewhitetail buck came from Pa.so we bred him with lite colored brown does. That brown gene has followed for 20 years and we get brown fawns from 2 whitewhitetails sometimes.We have no connection with Senneca deer. Our whitewhitetails even produced a piebald even when they say you have to have a piebald to get one.

Sometimes a deer that you think is white is actually a pied. All it takes is the smallest brown spot.

Out of 426 fawns born at our ranch we only had one pied. none of our whites or albinos had any trace of brown. The only brown we get is when they rub on cedar trees to remove the velvet.

They are just white whitetails, they ARE NOT ALBINOS !! Being born with a cream color means it has pigment...making it a white deer NOT AN ALBINO. Your deer producing brown fawns and even a piebald only confirms what I am saying, these deer have pigmentation in their genetics. I have been raising piebalds and whites for 10 years. There are several variations of these colors and genetics. A solid white deer is not necessarily an albino, it can be just a white deer....which is what you have. Some are born snow white and some are born cream color, but again...THEY ARE NOT ALBINOS !!



Personally, I don't care what you want to call them. I just don't want you to mislead people or even think you have something rare and valuable. You have beautiful white whitetails.
