    If it was legal, then he had every right to whack him. As for me, tough call. I am sure that there were/are lots of people who knew the albino was around and he very well could have been in someone's sights before. I probably would have let him go and look for another bull to fill my tag. Take some pictures and pass. Not that important for me to have his head on my wall. But I surley won't think bad of anyone who shot him, it was their right to do so.

    There is a line of thought that albinism as a trait is harmful to the population as a whole and therefore should be culled out whenever possible. I don't really know about that, just repeating what I've heard.

    Yes, I would shoot it. The bigger questions are how I would pay for the full-body mount and where I would put it.

    Albino deer are protected in Illinois as well. Everything I have read from biologists state that albinos have inferior genetics and should be removed from the herd. If I knew the animal was sacred to the Indian tribe I would not shoot it. Don't need the hassle in my life.

    Albino is extra cool not to mention that is a pretty good bull. Not sure if I caught where that was but I agree with the earlier post, depends on what else is out there. I can honestly say I wouldn't shoot him only because he is albino. But if he is a good represntative of the area, which it looks like he is, and the extra "coolness" I would take him.


    Situational ethics... love it. Lol


    I don't know here it was taken. I'll see if I can find out

    It was taken in Nova Scotia. Also, if memory serves me right, I believe MT also has a law against killing albino big game if they have more than 75% white. Here is an article I found on this moose.

    There you have it...not illegal in Nova Scotia. Difficult situation for the hunters, especially when they didn't know the significance to the local people.

    I'm not sure if I would want the PETA freaks camping out on my front lawn demanding my head. Would be an amazing trophy and I'm sure if it were legal I would love to have it hanging on my wall but that headache might make me think twice.

    After reading the article, I most likely wouldn't shoot it as long as I knew the significance to the indigenous folks. If I didn't know before hand, I would make the same mistake these folks did.

    If an albino breeds what are the chances of its offspring being albino?

    It would be a bad day for the PETA freaks if they showed up on my lawn demanding my head! I'd see how much love they really had for animals when I sicced my catahoula's on them! LOL Actually that would be pretty entertaining!
