Thanks for viewing our Life in the Northwoods website. We live in Northern Wisconsin in Vilas County and are surrounded by lakes, rivers, and wildlife of all kinds. We spend our days watching animals of all kinds like albino white-tailed deer, deer, bear, wolves, eagles, loons and many others. Vilas County is home to some 1320 lakes, which is one of the highest densities of lakes in the world. There are rivers and over 250 lakes within 7 miles of our house which offer some of the most spectacular landscapes a person could ever dream of. We decided to share our life in the Northwoods with anyone who is interested in nature, wildlife and scenic photography. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed taking them.

Albino White-tailed Deer

Albino Deer or "White Deer" are a very rare breed of White-tailed Deer in Northern Wisconsin. There are only 200 to 300 Albinos in the entire state of Wisconsin. We are very lucky to live near a State Forest and lots of private land. Albinos are protected in Northern Wisconsin and can not be hunted.
