BamaK,

I noticed something on your buck there and looked around, and I hate to say that is NOT a melanistic :( . First giveaway as you can see in your picture is the white throatpatch. A melanistic deer has no throatpatch whatsoever. Second, I looked around in your recent hunts and saw no notataion of any BT, Mule Deer, or WT bucks being melanistic. By notation, I mean as noted next to the animal on the statistics screen. You'd knw for sure then. FInally, I have killed numerous ones of that color varaiant, so that is basically just another BT deer, but why it is on the darker side is odd. New color variation? Can a dev please shed some light here?

Any time you are unsure with the darker colored Blacktails you can check your statistics and if it is a Melanistic (albino & piebald also) it will say so next to it.

It's simple. This is the new common whitetail male portrait:

And this is his URL:

Replace whitetail_deer by mule_deer, roosevelt_elk or blacktail_deer, and common by albino, piebald or melanistic. Tadaaam.

And some albino birds wouldn't go amiss either :)

Well, the way I see it overall is this: I'm very, very happy to finally see Piebalds and Melanistics in the game. We have asked for this for a very long time, and I'm glad EW decided to include them. Now, what makes it really cool is with the deer species you really never know what you're gonna get. Might hear a doe call, and now you'll be wanting to see it because you never know if it's actually a rare deer! Great job and thanks Devs!

Looks like they have increased the number of "rare" animals. I've found my first albino Blacktail Buck yesterday...wasn't able to take him down, but at least to capture him on video:
