So I’m not a lottery player by any means but I’ll bite on buying a ticket or two for the mega millions 970 million. The question is. What would you do first with 970 million dollars

I honestly don't know what I'd do. Might entertain the thought of buying property in another country. I would imagine I could buy a huge chunk in Russia for bear hunting. Some in Iceland for fishing. Continue to go to work for America until retirement.

As a goal oriented person. . . I'd try to double it. Not because I needed the money. Just got to have goals. And let's be real: How much more could you give back and for how many generations could you pay it forward if the pot was even larger?

Tell you guys to fugg off 😂

I'd buy various plots of hunting land all over the country, including a giant farm for Camp TOO. Like JB, I'd buy a plane and helicopter so I could freely travel about. I'd force my dad to retire. I'd spend time finding the right replacement for me at work, then I'd give them $1M to make a difference with, then I'd resign and start a new business. I've always wanted to be a real estate developer, so that's what I'd do for work when I wasn't playing. And of course, a good dose of philanthropy.

Similar but I dunno about the real estate developer stuff. I'd probably get more serious about my bees and dive into the breeding of them.

Buy plenty of farm land with income producing properties. Of course it would have great hunting on it. Go and see places I always dreamed of but out of my budget. Take plenty of fishing charters as it’s better than owning a boat. Never hunt public land again lol. I’m about simple, why clutter my life with responsibility. Help people that has always live right and take friends and family on dream hunts. You will only get a quarter of the monies in your pocket. Probably buy an island on the Mississippi River. Slow down and enjoy every day without stress. And of course set my family up to live like kings.

Make sure my family was taken care of for life, pay off my debts, quit my job and devote my time to folks who have neither time nor money. Probably buy a decent chunk of land to build on. Invest/donate the rest to ensure the money continues to bless long after I’m gone. Can’t take it with you. And do it anonymously, who the hell wants the attention
