    I had a piebald buck that was top buck, in my area last year. He pushed all the other bucks out. The piebald mated with most of the does. I know the white piebald's chromosomes and genes are inferier. What are my chances of another piebald or hitting the lottery, with an albino fawn being born?

    Here's what I have been told (could be wrong).
    -Piebalds and albinos are prone to disease/illness/deformation so taking them out of the population is good to do. On top of that they often have poor eyesight, and they stick out in the woods, therefore it is more likely for them to get killed by preditors etc.
    -For a piebald/albino fawn to be born both parents must have the gene, so if the buck stays on your property you could give it a few years and see what happnens(obviously the gene was carried somewhere for the buck to be born).
    -The chance of an albino fawn being born from two pinebald deer is not increased.
    -*My* personal opinion on the deer: If I were you and saw the deer during hunting season I would not hesitate to shoot if it was legal. Piebalds look nice, but they are not good for the overall herd. Fawns have a hard enough time surviving where I live, and having white on them would not help matters.

      JM pretty much covered it, I would just say that the chances of more piebalds/albinos are pretty slim, more likely than areas without a dominant piebald buck maybe, but still slim-to-none. So I wouldn't hold my breath.

        I would think your chances are better with the piebald being in the area year before then if he wasn't there.I wouldn't be surprised if the same buck isn't in the same area same time as last year.
