Guys like McNamara would turn the BWCA into Wisconsin Dells if they could. I'm sure he envisions a giant water-slide stretching from Sawbill to Quetico and is incredulous that others don't think turning our natural resources into cash is as important as keeping it pristine.

Dennis.......just what are you trying to say here? Go ahead and spit it out! Some might say you are just a out dated 7 foot hippie.

Well just because the guy doesn't agree with Dennis and the fiends of the boundary waters, he's evil, I guess.

This McNamara is horrible. That Ingebretsen is a GOPer I have some respect for as a DFLer.

McNamara is a hunter? He refused to give HF 2243 a hearing and then offered an amendment that actually legalizes the use of 330's on land. Doesn't he think enough hunting dogs die in body grip traps every year already? When I wouldn't remove a video showing the result of his botched amendment he threatened to call my legislator. Search youtube 'safedogmn' for the video.

14 million is still way too much money, some of these land aquisitions are borderline swindles of public tax dollars

We as sportsmen have all seen guys like Denny. He has maybe shot a few ducks but has never been out in the dark putting out a decoy spread. He has maybe shot a deer or two but never from a stand that he placed himself. I bet he has a NRA sticker or two on his vehicle but has to have someone else show him how to load and clean his gun. He has joined every hunting, fishing and trapping group that will have him, why? to get more votes. He is always on the side that he views as helping him in an election, not necesarily the side that makes the most sense.Outdoors fakes like him are in it for themselves and thats it.... SEMNBeagler

It's easy to pile on a guy like McNamara, but people like Dennis Anderson believe the solution to every outdoor problem is a government program paid for by... somebody. Who is that somebody? Where does the money come from?

Just what the state needs is more and more land. They can't take care of the acres they already own and now are begging the public hunters and fishermen for more money. I'm glad someone is trying to stop this madness.

akorn - the money comes from the Legacy Amendment. It is money that is constitutionally guaranteed by the voters of Minnesota. It can not be used for any other purpose than to protect and preserve our land. The money can not be used in other parts of the state budget. Look it up. It doesn't take a lot of effort to research these issues.
