    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for this post. All of the dear are beautiful. The documentary by the historian Walter Gable was very interesting. I had heard of the Seneca Army Depot, but I didn’t know anything about it. I can’t imagine the emotions of the families who gave up their land when the depot was created. This is an important part of New York State history.

    Thank you, Chris, it was nice to be reminded again of the white deer, something special we have here in NYS. I am going to send this to my brother-in- law in Texas; something tells me that as a sportsman and former hunter he will be intrigued by this.

    I’m very familiar with the Seneca White (really leucistic) Deer because my family has a cottage on Cayuga Lake. Leucistic deer are also spotted a lot in another area that I am very familiar with: the Buffalo River in Buffalo, NY. It’s not uncommon to see them in Tifft Nature Preserve and we often see them on the Buffalo River shoreline, especially near Mutual Riverfront Park in the early morning.

    Don’t know if it’s a “tall tail” but I’ve heard their white color is from chemicals or something else stored at the Depot. Anyone else hear that?
