JEFFERY GODFREY OF CHESAPEAKE, VIRGINIA, was deer-hunting Wednesday when that moment-of-a-lifetime arrived. He had already seen several deer that morning, but was waiting for “something special” at Fort Pickett.
And sure enough, his special target came out of the brush towards him….a nearly all-white deer. It was not an albino, which is a genetic freak that is all white with pink eyes, but it was what is known as a “piebald.” That is an animal that is mostly white with some patches of its natural coloring on it.
But in this case, the only area with color is a small patch on the top of its head. And to add to the trophy, it was a 10-point buck. That’s one for the books.
Godfrey brought it down with one shot and he will definitely have the head mounted.
