After turkey hunting all my life; today at the age of 54 I killed my first white gobbler. Hunting deep in the Alleghany County Mountains I called in this18.6 Lb gobbler. He had a 12” beard and 1 1/4 spurs. His tail feathers looked to be a little shorter than a regular gobbler.

Very cool! I've seen one of these in my life. I've seen a few albino deer but only one white Turkey in the wild. It was in Greene County, PA.

That is awesome. Did it have pink eyes? Wondering if it is an albino or some sort of piebald/white phase.

No pink eyes. Regular color on head and if you look at the first picture you can see 1 little black feather on its breast area.

Photographed this one in Hardy county wv a few years ago, she was with 3 other hens, when they separated was able to get close, by softly clucking on a call when she hears my steps in the grass. I think she was blind or nearly so, she had pink eyes.

We also have a hen in the area that looks like the one above except she has a 1” beard.
