I saw a white stag in Real Life once when I was a kid, about 30 years ago. Saw it across a ravine on Government land. It was a exciting experience.

What a beautiful animal. Too bad the quality of the pictures isn't the best.

Lot of colour variation in the Fallow population around here (East Sussex),seen pure black,dark grey and blonde (wait for the jokes !),and all sorts in between.Never seen a white one yet,but many pubs called The White Hart,which around here means a Roebuck,believe in other parts of the UK,hart means a Red Stag?

I've seen two white deer in my 65 years of life in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Too bad I didn't have a gun to shoot em' with. Odie

Well we have white deer here in America. Though they are actually smaller in stature than white tail and mule deer. I seen a white doe in Iowa about 3 months ago.

They are beautiful animals. I can see why they reached mythical status. Maybe they just aren't as rare now as they used to be. They need to be protected.
