Sporting Camps pay $1,500.00 to F&W if they are a winner in the Lodge Tag Lottery. Fwiw, the three lodges I know of that have subsequently sold the tags have obviously spent the $$ to make improvements on their facilities. I believe that was the goal and intention of establishing the program. Probably they’ll end the program now that the public is finding out that a member of the Trump family participated and had an enjoyable experience in Maine.Bought one of the permits that they give to outfitters.
What the hell…if you can afford to “buy” a moose hunt, why not? Good for him.
The permit only dictates what zone you can HUNT the moose in. It doesn’t require you be in the same zone for the photo.Somebody buying the permit does not bother me, but sitting in the next zip code back from the moose for the picture….now that really frosts my balls!!
