There was nothing illegal about Saturday’s shooting in Leland, about 15 miles northwest of Sauk City. White and albino deer aren’t protected in chronic-wasting-disease zones, and this deer was not even a true albino because it had a dark spot on its hindquarters.

But the area only has about eight white and albino deer, and even though the town is full of avid hunters the residents have formed a truce to keep them safe. So when a hunter bagged a white buck Saturday, some townspeople reacted with anger and dismay.
