First off...What an dumbass and second does Indiana really offer an Albino deer hunting license?? I can't imagine it is a very long season for those.

Idiot for hunting in residential area, but there's laws protecting albino deer?

/huh

Donald Kenny II, 28, was witnessed shooting an albino deer with a shotgun after blinding the animal with the headlights of his pickup truck.
...
Kenny will likely be charged with Class B and C misdemeanors for shooting from a public road, shooting after legal deer-hunting hours, using artificial light to kill a deer, and illegally taking a deer without the proper license to shoot any antlerless deer. However, it is ultimately up to the Warrick County prosecutor's office to make the decision in how he will be charged.


Dear Mr. Prosecutor,

Please charge this dimwit under all applicable statutes and recommend the maximum penalty for each where he is found guilty. Thank you.

TFA says it's not illegal to kill an albino deer in Indiana, or perhaps you were just trying to make a more trolltastic headline.

States that have laws against killing albino deer do so to prevent mass gangs of hunters trying to take the same deer -- hunting with or without permission or like this hunter and his "shining" the deer. It's also just bad PR; albino deer sightings get a lot of press and anti-hunting nuts get frothy when they hear about one being killed. I'm OK with those laws in both respects.

No it's the you cannot shoot a deer from a public roadway, and you cannot blaze your KC lights to blind it so it stands still while you blast it. VERY poor sportsmanship.

Albino deer are fair game and generally do not last that long in the wild anyway due to lack of camouflage.

The DNR says that it is not against the law to shoot an albino deer in the state of Indiana, as long as the hunter has a proper license.

So they are treated just like any other deer if I am reading that right. People bag albino ones just like the rest. If anything I would think they would be an easy target.

The guy is a complete fool for:

Shining a deer
Shooting from the road
Shooting in a residential neighborhood
Killing a deer without a license

And is a grade-A asshole, but not a criminal, for shooting an albino deer. TFA says it's not illegal to take albinos, and it isn't in most hunting states either, but it should be. They're rare, interesting to see in the wild, and with some luck, will breed and make a few more if left alone.

Idiots like this give sportsmen a bad name. He should also be brought up on civil charges for discharging a firearm within city limits (and in a residential neighborhood).

It's not going to get rid of albino deer, anyway. It's a recessive trait so it continues on in the buck and doe and the half of their offspring that will carry the trait but not show it.

Damn ... I thought for sure this was gonna be in Seneca Falls. Quite a healthy population of Albino Deer on the old Army base. We also have a 1280 talk radio in Rochester ... or at least I think we still do.

And killing a very young male deer that did not have its antlers yet.

"The male albino deer, a small 'button buck' that hadn't yet grown antlers past its ears, had been spotted often in the area."

Sad that this dumbass just killed it for the novelty.

I'm pretty sure that's what he meant by "shining a deer", unless he went all Jack Nicholson on it somehow.

There is a good sized herd of them in the Fingerlakes that have made a home on protected land. Should one stray off the land, though, anyone who shoots it would be an epic asshole, and I hope would be shamed mercilessly.

BFD that it was albino. Albino, mellanistic, piebald, and regular--shoot them all. But do it legally and don't be a dumbass poacher.

I hope he gets the max for the rules he broke. Shooting in a residential neighborhood after jacklighting a deer - my god. And a buck that didn't even have horns at that.

If he'd missed that deer and hit someone that he didn't see beyond the lights...

I disagree.

So long as it was taken legally and ethically, who cares? Hell, I myself would be tempted to take an albino or a piebald deer in preference to a "normal" specimen. I'd make myself a kick-ass quiver and possibles bag from that, maybe some moccasins for the distaffbopper.

Mark me as an epic asshole because I'd shoot one without hesitation.

There are so many farging deer where I live that they're a goddam nuisance. I can't grow anything in my garden because they come in and eat all of the plants. It's a rare night that I don't have to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting one....on my motorcycle. They wander the woods and all of the neighborhood dogs start barking their heads off all night long. F**k deer, I hate them.

Except on a plate, that is. They're tasty.

You sound racist. All deer should be hunted equally, regardless of color, creed, or national heritage.

Heh! Three replies and yours was the lolliest.

To dittybopper and nickerj1: I disagree because there are lots and lots and lots of ordinary tasty deer to kill and eat. Please, have some. The farkers are everywhere. There are a teeny little few albino deer. I do not think we should act in a way that reduces the number of these special deer. When there is a small number of something, we protect that something.

"Shining" a deer is just that. Here in Wisconsin it's a normal word, but then again "ya dere, hey?" is a normal phrase, too.

1. Not all hunting is for food.

2. There will always be albino deer, it's not like they are a separate endangered species or something.

So you feel that we should protect creatures with natural genetic mutations that make them far less likely to live to normal life expectancy? What's next, telling kids that they can't bring PB&J sandwiches to school because one kid has an allergy and would die if exposed to normal food?

I think subby was just adding that "albino" in there for interest, since "slaying a deer in a residential neighborhood" is an offense by itself. But don't let me interfere with the albino flamewar.

We have a number of piebalds but not many/any albino deer that I have seen in my area, We also have a bunch that are grey in two different shades, one almost black, and these tend to be fairly large, don't have decent racks though, and a mousy grey that are just like the normal brown but a shade or so darker than the barrel of a sharpie.

Would kinda like to get one of the dark grey's and an albino, and mount them somewhere interesting for the contrast.

For some reason my dad's basement has a whole bunch of mounted deer heads even though I'm not much of a hunter, and neither is he. Then again my nephew and brother in law are and bag 4 or 5 a year each. (I've gotten 6 in my whole life, deer hunting isn't hard in rural Ohio at all and is more of a pain than letting other people do it on your land and you getting a cut of the meat each year).

No flamewar. Those who would kill an albino deer, rather than leave it alone because it's interesting to see in the wild, are definitely proven though study after study to be 100% military-grade puss-weeping dickholes.

As a responsible hunter and gun owner, I say confiscate his gun and his truck. We all know it's a potential consequence of doing what he did. Both were used in the commission of his crime. Revoke his firearm/hunter safety certification. If obtained out of state, request that that state revoke the certificate as a courtesy. Finally, deny future hunting license purchases for the next three full seasons.
