Safari Club International (SCI) is auctioning the 7-day excursion in which participants will hunt Sitka black-tailed deer and sea ducks. They will stay aboard a yacht and their trip would include "accommodations, trophy fees for donated species, meals, guide service and field prep."

As of Tuesday afternoon, the "current bid" was listed as $10,000, though a live auction is scheduled to take place this weekend. The trip will take place in November.


The listing said that Trump Jr.'s "passion for the outdoors makes him the number one ambassador for our way of life."

A spokesperson for Trump Jr. declined to comment on the auction and SCI could not immediately be reached for comment. 

According to its website, SCI is "a not-for-profit organization of hunters whose primary missions are to protect the freedom to hunt and to promote wildlife conservation."

This is not the president's son's first fundraiser with hunting groups. A different sports hunting advocacy group organized a raffle last year that featured a three-day trip to hunt whitetail deer with Trump Jr.

Trump Jr.'s spokesman said at the time that the permits were appropriately gotten through a third-party outfitter “as is standard in the industry.”

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) found "no basis" to investigate the trip after receiving an investigation request from a nonprofit group.
