This is the closest I’ve ever been to The White Deer of 4.5 star Yelp-rated Point Reyes National Seashore. It was the view I had from Pierce Point Road.
Now, back in the day, the National Park Service was hiring snipers to hunt down the non-native Fallow and Axis Deer so that Tule Elk and other native species would have an easier life. Well, as detailed by Zachary Zoblig, the “Bambi Effect” kicked in like you wouldn’t believe. Thusly:

The new approach is a massive contraceptive program that will eliminate these critters
by 2025 or so.

The Friends of the White Deer and Save the Point Reyes Deer are just going to have to live with that…
Good luck, Bambi.
