Albino deer of Boulder Junction
Boulder Junction, Wisconsin is home to Wisconsin’s largest herd of albino deer.
The albino deer herd of Boulder Junction is one of Wisconsin’s great natural treasures. Sometimes referred to as white deer or ghost deer, these white-tailed deer are true albinos, exhibiting pure white coats as well as pink noses, ears and hooves.

Seeing one of Boulder Junction’s albino deer is an unforgettable experience. During the spring, summer and fall, the bright coloration of these white deer makes them easy to spot among the forest foliage. During the winter, the coloring of albino deer blends in with the snowy surroundings, making them appear as ghosts moving across the landscape.

I have always wanted to see an albino whitetail deer but sadly I never have. I have heard that they have been sighted in my area once in awhile. The closest I came to seeing one was not quite an albino but what they call a piebald, part white and part brown/gray.
