Hunting advocacy group advertises chance to join 'modern-day Teddy Roosevelt' Trump Jr on elk hunting trip for $10 per entry
President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, is reportedly hosting a five-day elk hunting trip in Utah for the winner of a concert which has been sponsored by one of his favorite advocacy groups — HunterNation.
The hunting advocacy group, in its Instagram page on Saturday, announced the "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" slated for fall 2019. The post was liked by Trump Jr who is an avid hunter and is regularly slammed by animal-rights groups and other critics for his proclivity towards shooting animals.
The contest description by HunterNation stated that hunters can "join Donald Trump Jr, the modern-day Teddy Roosevelt, in Utah for a five-day adventure hunting elk in some of the most majestic land our great country has to offer," for a mere sum of $10 as the entry fee.
Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States, was an avid hunter and outdoor enthusiast. The president was known for his love of the land, which he developed during his famous hunting expeditions in the American West. He was in office from 1901 to 1909.
"You will have to go a long way to find a bigger advocate for our hunting lifestyle and a more passionate hunter and conservationist than Don Jr. The opportunity to share a hunting camp with him is truly priceless. Gain a new perspective on real-life conservation from one the leading experts on the subject, all while you hunt one of the most prized big game animals on earth," the contest description added.
Trump Jr was recently honored with an award at this weekend's Western Hunting and Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City, where HunterNation also participated among hundreds of other exhibitors, according to the Daily Mail. His girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, also congratulated Trump Jr on his award in an Instagram post with his pictures from the event. "An incredible weekend in Salt Lake City, Utah. So many patriots and lovers of liberty and freedom here this weekend," Guilfoyle wrote in the post.
The president, in an interview last week, had talked about taking Guilfoyle on fishing and hunting trips as they hit the campaign trail prior to the midterm elections: "She's actually doing quite well [at fishing]," he told Page Six.
"She's even been out with me down to Texas with some of my buddies there. They all go: "Hey, it's a guy camp, are you sure she's going to be OK?" I'm like: "Don't worry, boys, I'm making you sign a waiver. She's going to destroy all of you."' he added, raving about her hunting skills, saying she's "a very good shot."
