A PECULIAR COLORED DOE
By S. C. Turnbo
In giving accounts of reminiscences of the early days in Taney County,
Mo., Mr. Mart Herrean told the following.
"I never saw a white deer but old Jimmie Tabor, father of Arch Tabor, killed a white deer one day on the right hand prong of Big Creek. I did not see the deer but I saw the hide. The color of the hair on this hide was as white as snow. I killed a strange colored deer one day myself which I have thought of frequently in my old days. It was a doe with a white streak of hair around each ear. The most of the hair on the left side was white and the hair on her jaw was white. I could see these colors before I shot her. She was fully grown and looked to be several years of age," said Mr. Herrean.
