Michigan May Allow Hunting of Albino Deer

Because, you know, it's hard enough when it's just you, your high powered rifle, and that damned brown deer. What's up with that? It's like they blend in with everything.
Michigan wildlife officials may drop a rule that forbids killing albino deer, partly because of a legal squabble with a Michigan man who shot a mostly white deer four years ago.

Reversing the moratorium on taking albinos is among several changes in hunting regulations the state Natural Resources Commission is scheduled to consider during a meeting Thursday in Lansing.

A law protecting all-white deer was enacted during the 1980s at the request of an Upper Peninsula legislator and later became part of the state's wildlife conservation code.
