Piebalds in Randolph County

Yeah hunter 4 he had the classic piebald boxer nose, kind of looks like someone hit him in the face with a 2X4. He also had some little short legs. The other didn't have the boxer nose but did have the short legs. Well I know there was also a albino in the area a few years ago but never could get him but he was a big 8 pointer. He would come out from a bedding area I was hunting that was boarded one side by a gully, on another side was a house, the third by a road, and the fourth by mine and my brothers deerstands. I saw him three times and he would walk up a logging road right past the house. Being the responsible hunter I am had to let him walk. All them piebalds have came out of the same thicket, so wonder if it could be part of his genes. I don't know if the piebald and albino gene are the same does any of ya'll know? Here is a pic of the two does and a pic of a friend of mine that got a piebald 6 pointer on a neighboring property.

The characteristics that piebalds show are recessive genetic traits, but they'll continue to show up in a local deer herd every year or two. When tagging and checking deer in was required, certain check stations would see a piebald or two every year.

Your pictures show everything people have told me Pie Balds look like. The one I shot in 2008 was a stallion compared to those. He was 17 1/2 inch inside spread 8 point and grossed 112...normal nose and normal legs. I guess he forgot to be freaky! Great pictures! I can't remember off hand but I think he weighed 155lbs.
