Wisconsin bowhunter shoots white buck
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP)—When Joe Furrer went bow hunting in western Waukesha County, he snagged a rare prize: a white buck.
White deer have been spotted sporadically throughout western areas of the county in the past several years.
White deer are different from albino deer because they often have a brown spot and brown eyes. Albino deer will red eyes.
Shooting a white or albino deer outside of the chronic wasting disease zone is illegal and can result in a steep fine and up to a three-year loss of a hunting license. But the shoot Nov. 15 was in the zone.
The 29-year-old says he’s in the process of getting a full-body mount made of the 10-point buck.
