    Rare albino deer bagged by 11-year-old [W:245]


    Rare albino deer bagged by 11-year-old - GrindTV.com

    "“He should have let it live. There are plenty of others out there,” reads one of hundreds of comments.
    “If it’s rare, why the hell would he kill it?” reads another.
    “I’m fine with hunting, just hate the ‘Hey look, it’s different, let’s shoot it’ ideas. Shoot it with a camera and let the unique one live,” reads yet another.Deer-hunting in Michigan is an extremely popular pastime, so it’s not surprising that so many wrote in defense of Gavin Dingman.“Get over it. The law says it’s legal. Back off the kid!!! Way to go kiddo!!” reads one comment.
    “He paid good money for his license. He can use it for anything HE chooses, ” reads another. “Whether it be a brown deer or an albino buck, the state of Michigan gave him permission to kill it. Leave the kid alone. He did nothing wrong. He harvested a great trophy.”
    Some of the commenters criticized WZZM 13 for posting the story on Facebook, opening Gavin to criticism.
    “WZZM should stick with reporting news, not trying to make an 11-year-old boy feel guilty for shooting a deer, during deer season,” reads one comment."

    Do you think this is in bad taste? Blame the kid? Blame the dad? No problem whatsoever?

    Until the law says it is illegal to shoot this kind of deer I see no reason to make the kid feel guilty about it. He didn't do anything wrong.

    That would make an awesome mount!

    Besides, I'm not sure but I suspect his breeding opportunities would have been limited anyway considering that a deer's coloration isn't only camouflage to human hunters.

    I hope they dress out the animal and consume it. If it was killed for the sake of killing it and putting it's head on the wall of someones den, that's wrong.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    That was an image I didn't really need to see.

    That dear looks to be just now legal this season. It wouldn't have made it through the season/ Glad it went to someone who will see it as a lifetime story. That is as long as the meat and hide aren't wasted.

    Meh, he wouldn't have lasted that long out in the wild on his own anyway. I take no issue with it.

    It's surprising that it has lived as long as it did, given the obvious disadvantages it had.

    I wonder what they're going to do with the hide? A deerskin with hair that could be dyed any color would be valuable to people who tie their own flies.
