ANTELOPE ISLAND STATE PARK, Utah (AP) -- State wildlife officials have denied a request for a trophy hunt on Antelope Island to benefit the families of the six trapped miners in the Crandall Canyon Mine.

A group wanted the proceeds from the hunting permits be sent to the families of the trapped miners.

But the division of Natural Resources does not allow any hunting of deer, antelope and bighorn sheep on the island.

State officials say there are other ways to raise money to help the families, including contributing to the trust accounts that have been set up in Huntington.
