I thought it looked strange as well buta guy I work with lives where the car hit the Deer and he said everyone there was in shock. That is close to the BonSecour management area and who knows there may be more in there. Amazing what them oysters and mullet do to the deer.
seed deer from Minnesota were planted in south Baldwin county in the 1950's by a the south baldwin hunting club, then after waiting 20 some odd years they opened deer hunting south of hwy 98
The south baldwin hunting club usually killed a few of these big body monsters every year until the club was closed when they lost most of thier leases, most of them were killed down around Josephine and back west of there to miflin area and then east to perdido beach
Well, back in the 70's it was dog hunting only and still hunting and rifles were against the club rules
I think we helped spread the genetics around the area chasing them with with dogs, and I think the sorrento legend was also genetic offspring from the Minnesota deer that eventually swam across perdido bay
the deer on the west side of wolf bay in Mulberry Point would often run west and with a good cold nosed dog that would stay on a track for days and days the deer would often cross hwy 59
So, those light colored big bodied deer with monster racks were oftern killed side by side with the dark grey swamp deer that were natives. seeing the 2 side by side hanging in the skinning shed you could easily see the differance
