Having never seen an albino deer, let along a 12-pt buck albino, it is shocking to know a young 11-year 6th grader old hunter with a crossbow shot the deer.
Gavin Dingman from Oceola Township in Michigan knew the deer was in the area his family hunted since they have spotted it several times over the past couple years, but last Monday evening Gavin, who was hunting with his dad, was given the chance to bring it home. He took aim with his crossbow and “double lunged” the deer from about 30 yards.
When he saw the albino deer, Gavin said he was "very nervous" as he took aim with his crossbow.
"My dad was just like, ‘Take a deep breath. Are you sure you can take the shot? If you’re not 100 percent, we don’t want to injure it,’ " the boy recalled.
