white deer

In a Nov. 10, photo provided by Seneca White Deer Inc., a white buck stands in a clearing at the former Seneca Army Depot. There are about 200 white deer, a natural variant of the brown white-tailed deer, on 7,000 acres of the decommissioned site that will soon be put up for bid. Several groups, including Seneca White Deer Inc. and The Nature Conservancy, are interested in buying the site to preserve the deer and open the area to tourism and outdoor recreation. 

ROMULUS, N.Y. (AP) — Guided bus tours to view the world's largest herd of white, white-tailed deer are set to resume in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

Seneca White Deer Tours says the 90-minute tours at the former Seneca Army Depot in Romulus will begin Thursday. It's the first time in more than five years the former depot will be open to the public.

Seneca White Deer Tours president Dennis Money says the focus will be on viewing the deer, but the tours also will feature military artifacts from the depot's decades as a major weapons storage facility. It was built by the Army in 1941 and closed in 2000.

Tours will generally be conducted Thursday through Sunday, year-round.
