It is illegal to shoot all-white deer in Wisconsin, since they are protected by the state.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, hunters are prohibited from shooting "albino and white deer which have a coat of all white hair except that the hair on the tarsal glands, head or parts of the head may be a color other than white."
