Pie ball deer?

As for the “pie ball” deer, below. I killed him 12 Dec 1978 while still hunting on Spud Tharington’s land near the curve on the Macon/Embro Road. I shot him at 25yds. Using a Ruger Moni-14 .223 rifle with a 55 gr. SP Winchester bullet. It was mounted by Woody Wilson of Louisburg, NC ($150)

    White or partially white face. I've heard is a 'pie bald'.

    On a horse the white would cover most of the face and it may have blue/white eyes. Way more than just a strip or snip.

    If you ever come out west the black cows with white faces are "black baldies. Just a little tid-bit for ya.
