FW: Calico Buck

These pictures are amazing.  I never knew such a deer existed, let alone in Wisconsin. 

Here is a calico buck that a hunter shot in WI. He sent these pictures to a bunch of people to see what he could get and the owner of Cabela's paid him $13,000 for the head and hide. A calico buck like this one is rarer then an albino.
