Some call it a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and there are hunters who are too superstitious to shoot one.

White deer. While pure albino or partly white deer (piebalds) are very rare, though readers have captured a few with their cameras recently.

Camille Daniels saw this piebald doe three times over a period of several years and managed to capture this photo last fall. The deer survived several hunting seasons — Daniels said local hunters would pass her up, but unfortunately was hit by a car over the summer.

While the deer Daniels photographed is called a piebald because it is partly white, the deer in the picture taken by Cael Evans looks like a pure albino. Evans saw the deer July 29 at the Blue Ridge Trail Golf Course in Dorrance Township. Evans was thrilled to see such a deer in the wild and actually get close enough for a photo.

Lastly, Bobby Jordan Sr. captured this unique buck on his trail camera in August. It’s rare because not only is it mostly white, but has a nice 8-point rack as well. Judging by the size of the rack, the buck is two-and-a-half years old and big enough that it can stretch to reach an apple in the tree above.

Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to
