Rainy Lake, hands down for me.

The scenery, the location, the fishing, hunting, and yes even the weather.

That is my dream.....to someday live up on Rainy.

I'm lucky enough to have a place on Rainy. It truly is a great place.

Millacs for how close it is and the number of trophy fishing oprotunities. A place on the north shore would be great as well. Love the scenery up there.

The exact junction where the Little Pine and the Big Pine meet just north of the Mississippi. Great fishing, incredible wildlife!

LOTW, or since this is labeled "if you had it your way" a lake with pike, musky and smallies that was catch and release!

A log cabin on a small 40- 100 acre lake with no people just trees and animals. Solar electricity and heat with running water. just me, my family, and My dog!!

I would live on West Okoboji in Iowa and have a hunting cabin somewhere else. I would rather fish 2 hrs at a time 6 days a week but you have to focus when its hunting time.

I would pick any $5M "cabin" on Lake Minnetonka or Lake Washington (Seattle). Lake Minnetonka is really a bunch of lakes in one, each with it's own misteries to uncover that would be fascinating to live on with a well rigged out Tuffy and a SnowBear for the winter. Lake Washington would be my choice for Saltwater as there is alot of good fishing reachable from LW.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.

    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
