Halloween may have already passed, but one south Georgia deer hunter took a ghost of a deer yesterday.
Deer hunter Sam Hogan took this albino buck while hunting in Tift County. The Casper-looking deer was a young 4-point buck that weighed 140 pounds. Wildlife Biologist Brent Howz of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Game Management told WALB.com what everybody already knows when he said that albino deer are exceptionally rare in that part of the country.
One interesting side note: Albino deer are less rare other regions of whitetail country like the Boulder Junction area of Wisconsin (see the story of the Mysterious Albino Deer Heard).
