Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Reuters.com: “Trump's son gets permit allowing him to hunt Alaska grizzly bear”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - Donald Trump Jr. has been granted the right to hunt a grizzly bear in northwestern Alaska near the Bering Sea town of Nome, a state official said on Friday.

The son of U.S. President Donald Trump was one of three people who applied for 27 spots for non-resident hunters targeting grizzlies in a designated region of northwestern Alaska’s Seward Peninsula, said Eddie Grasser, the wildlife conservation director for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

The state conducts periodic drawings for permits to hunt bears, caribou, moose and other animals in various regions. Winners are chosen by a lottery, and there are typically many more applications than hunting tags awarded.

“We get thousands of applications,” Grasser said. Whether anyone wins, he said, comes down to “pure chance, luck of the draw.”

But in the case of the bear-hunt permit that the president’s son won, there was little competition. Twenty-four tags for hunting bears in that region went unclaimed, Grasser said.
