Donald Trump Jr. granted permit to hunt Alaskan grizzly bear

President Donald Trump‘s oldest son has been granted a permit to hunt and kill one grizzly bear in western Alaska.

On Monday, Alaska Department of Fish and Game spokesperson Rick Green told the Associated Press (AP) Donald Trump Jr. was given permission to hunt north and east of Nome later this year.

Trump applied for one of 27 licences designated for out-of-state hunters in the area, a permit only two other hunters applied for, likely due to the remoteness of the area and the expense of getting there.

The permit lasts from Aug. 1 to May 31, 2021, and the AP says he’s set to target grizzly bears, the same species as Alaska brown bears.

Eligible hunters are chosen based on periodic draws in instances where there are more people applying for hunts than permits available.

In those cases, the department says on its website that each person applying for a hunt “is entered into the pool and names are selected randomly (like pulling names out of a hat).”
