Bowhunter Makes Perfect Shot on Gnarly Piebald Buck in Maryland

YouTube: Hunt Club with Phillip Culpepper

This beautiful, gnarly old piebald buck makes for an exciting hunt!

Seeing a piebald buck in the wild is an uncommon occurrence. Many hunters go their whole lives without seeing one of these genetic mutants firsthand. Fewer get the chance to harvest one where it is legal.

One thing we have never heard of is someone harvesting a piebald deer on camera. That is, until now. Seasoned pro hunting cameraman Phillip Culpepper is in Maryland to hunt with some good friends.

There are rumors of a big, old piebald buck running around the area that the others are afraid to shoot because of bad luck superstitions. Culpepper doesn't believe the rumors about piebalds being cursed, and when the big old buck pays him a visit, he lets an arrow fly!

This is one of the most unique hunting videos we have seen in a while. We have seen plenty of videos of piebald and albino deer in the past. However, seeing someone harvest one, especially a buck as cool as this, is something else entirely. What an exciting hunt and a great-looking buck!

Phillip's shot placement was perfect on this deer as he went down within sight of the stand. We can only imagine the incredible shot of adrenaline he got from this buck. Most hunters would be happy with a deer that had a rack as cool as this one. The buck being albino was just the icing on the cake.

Note that he saw a young piebald doe the day before harvesting this buck. There's little question that this is an older buck and that his genetics are fully ingrained into the local herd. Congratulations to Phillip on an awesome buck. We don't blame him for talking about a full body mount. A deer like this is what full body taxidermy forms are built for!
