Donald Trump Jr. is traveling to Southeast Alaska for a deer hunt with his son in November, to take place after the Nov. 3 General Election, when his father, the president, will find out if he has another four years in office.
But long before that, Trump Jr. will be in Nevada, for the Safari Club International convention on Feb. 8, where a slot in that November, week-long, Sitka black-tailed deer hunt will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
Trump Jr., author of the recently published book, “Triggered,” will be accompanied by his son as they partner with Coastal Alaska Adventures, a Douglas-based guiding firm owned by Master Guide Keegan McCarthy.
The current online absentee bid is now $17,500, and has risen by $2,500 since the author started this article.
The hunt is part of a newly launched “Hunter Heritage Series,” intended to bring youth and new hunters to the sport and hunting lifestyle, and to create the next generation of hunters.
Trump Jr. is giving the keynote address at the convention, which begins Wednesday.
Each hunter on Trump Jr’s trip will be able to harvest two Sitka black-tailed deer. The auctioned item includes accommodations, trophy fees, meals, guide service and field prep . The trip embarks on a yacht out of Juneau.
Trump Jr.’s book, “Triggered, How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us,” was published in November. The publisher describes it as “the book that the leftist elites don’t want you to read — Donald Trump, Jr., exposes all the tricks that the left uses to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square, from online “shadow banning” to rampant “political correctness.”‘
The book made it to No. 1 on the New York Times list of bestsellers for nonfiction.
