It was a magical moment watching this fawn & his twin as they kept encircling the albino buck,...gazing at him as if he were a ghost. The buck remained amazingly aloof at their presence.

Take him out! I would love to harvest this buck.

He needs to be left alone. there are enough bucks that aren't albino to be hunted!

He needs an arrow through his vitals.

Wouldn't want to go hunting with you!

That animal is a genetic mutation that needs to be removed from the gene pool. The MDC would prefer he be harvested.

dii, would you have preferred I stated that I would like to put an arrow through his hind quarters? THAT would be irresponsible on a hunter's part to intentionally do.

What I stated is a perfectly accepted, ethical hunting technique when referring to archery.
