Stewart Island Whitetail colours

Seen a few piebald whitetail shot on Stewart Island, and have seen a live one myself in the North Lords. But never seen one with black facial patches like the one below before. Interested in seeing photos of any unusual ones you may have come across , and whether the black markings have turned up before.Cheers.

With a normal coloured one.

Another view.

Thats a very cool mount.  I haven't seen any whitetail in NZ, but can't wait to hunt them one day.

Shot a pie balled one[white patches] and seen a few others but never seen one like that one.
Thanks for posting.

That's a new one to me Greg,  Google search found very few links which indicates they are pretty rare in USA.   This one is from Florida which is interesting in that they are a totally different subspecies to ours.   http://huntdrop.com/hunt/black-face-buck

Have seen a few piebald deer over years.  The first one was at Flounder Bay in the early  80's,  It was almost completly white and I thought it was a goat until it turned and jumped over a log.  I have a picture of if as it was shot by a more alert hunter a little later.  Cheers JD
