Hunting Group Launches “Dream Hunt” With Junior Contest To Raise Funds To Rollback Wildlife Protections

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

In a bid to raise money to promote hunting rights and the removal of protection for predator species, a new group co-founded by Utahn Don Peay is selling $10 tickets for a chance to spend five days with Donald Trump Jr. on a guided elk hunt in Utah.

Hunter Nation recently posted the foray with the president’s son among its “Dream Hunt Sweepstakes,” billing Trump Jr. as a “modern-day Teddy Roosevelt,” the Republican president closely associated with the rise of conservation in the United States more than a century ago.

Both Trump Jr. and Roosevelt are also known for a shared love of trophy hunting, a practice today that provokes controversy and derision in some quarters.

Hunter Nation is also running a $10 sweepstakes to go hunting with Ted Nugent and his wife.
