View Full Version : White moose shot-WMU326
01-25-2007, 02:03 PM
Here's a pic, for general interest, of a white moose shot in WMU 326 about 20 years ago. Thats the much younger me with the moose that my buddy had shot. If you know that area, it was near Line Heater #4 (LH4) just off the Swan Lake road, west of Caroline. A once in a lifetime event.
The moose was not albino, as you can see by its hooves (black) and its eyes (not pink). CO called it a mutation.
My buddy had the head mounted and years later this newspaper article appeared.(scroll right). The head is now in a museum in Ottawa. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q129/myrtlebrent/File0001.jpghttp://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q129/myrtlebrent/File0002.jpg

Way to go! I have seen pure white Elk in the bush. I know this sounds silly but I view the white animals as the caretakers of the forest. Not to take anything away from your Moose just the way I view things. Thanks for sharing the picture.

A white moose, a king of the wild animal ghosts of Alberta. If I had the chance to bag one of those ghost's I would. When my family and I saw that pure white red eye wolf ghost on highway 16, 1/2 way between Edsion and Hinton my wife said that would make a fine rug, except will you ever see one while your out hunting? Well that was 10 years ago or so and I still haven't seen one while hunting.

that moose is weird, but in a cool way.
i've never seent that before in my life.
Thats an oddball for sure , i have seen one exactly like it this moose season .
It was a youngen with mom , but exactly like that ,greyish with the spots and no pinkeye or signs of being an albino.
Talked to a couple guys at my camp base that seen the same creature.. maybe next season i will see it again.

Looks like a piebald. There have been a few deer shot on camp Wainwright that have been piebald as well. I have a piebald porcupine, I will post some pics later.

Here's a couple pictures I took of a white mule deer buck that was hanging around an area I hunt a couple years ago. The pictures are not that great, light was poor and my camera wasn't the best, but this deer was pure white, looked like a ghost coming through the bush. It wasn't albino, had black hair on it's tail and ears.
