They are not protected here in Ohio and if I saw one while hunting I might take it - just depends - but they are pretty neat looking.

Albino whitetails are protected in Wisconsin, but pie-balds are not. A whitetail could be all white, but if it doesn't have a pink nose and pink eyes, it isn't considered an albino (as far as I know anyway).

When I was younger, we always took a two week vacation in June up in Saint Germain, Wisconsin (my parents still go up there for two weeks each June). Saint Germain isn't too far from Boulder Junction. It was pretty common to see albino deer in the wild up there. We were up there for a weekend in October several years ago, before I was into bow hunting, and I saw a really nice 8-point albino.

The deer up there aren't very spooky. It was very common for there to be whitetails in the yard at the place we were staying and behind restuarants. It was always fun to watch the deer while eating supper. Heck, more than once I've walked within 20 feet of a whitetail up there before it would trot off.

I have seen a number of piebald deer over the years but never noticed anything physically different about any of them. Aside from a unique color pattern they all appeared to be normal and healthy.
