Brad Knoll (BKKNOLL) sent me this interesting photo of a solid black deer reportedly taken in Michigan in '06. These are supposed to be rarer than albino deer.

Comment: Since the deer are genetically becoming more nocturnal by excessive baiting, is this the next evolutionary step? The ultimate STEALTH WHITETAILS? Until it snows?

(just kidding)

have a look...

I will have to send a picture of that Black Deer to Mom and Big dad ....

Do you have a good shot of the one of yours on the family site ???
If so I have not noticed .. I have enjoyed the pictures of the deer that you have put on ..

You really have the perfect name for your home ... and I love it !!

you are so lucky.... when you leave the island you go home to your litttle corner of the world with the deer and all the fun little ones you enjoy ...

By the way has all your little family left for Texas yet ???
I wish they were coming to Granbury ..I love it here .. and they could be closer to me and we could do fun things with the kids here ...

Heres the scoop on the black deer. (Googled Michigan black deer and this came up first page or two . Says it came from Texas where there is a "pocket of them"
