Will play/do anything. I've got a pretty decent gym in the basement, so I keep in shape - play some flag football over the fall, paintball and rollerhockeyyear round, spring turkey hunt, downhill skiing, mountain biking (downhill and xc), surf (when I can get to the beach, which is NEVER, grrr), hunt varmints all summer, golf.

It's hard, because, with bowhunting being my favorite pastime, everything else goes on the back burner. When you throw the girlfriend into the picture, it doesn't leave much free time. So that makes it hard to get actively involved in any particular league or sport, due to the time constraints. I've had to find leagues/groups that play at a moment's notice, as opposed to on a schedule (which usually includes Saturday games, that I can't attend b/c of hunting).

Paintball is one of the newer things that we've started, and it's really awesome. You can play with the neighborhood kids, or a bunch of old farts, and it's fun every time. If you have the equipment, it's easy to get a game together on Sundays around here. A really good cardio workout.

Bowhunt, flyfish, snowboard, golf and weight lifting are what keeps me busy. With bowhunting and flyfishing being my true passions. Oh yeah and I have a great girlfriend lol.

I love to Spring Turkey Hunt, as well as Snowmobile in the winter. I play American Legion Baseball and football when i can, i might get into college baseball as well, if my elbow holds up. But other than those, I will play just about any sport, i love to be competitive and i really enjoy it!

Golf in the warm months and Bowhunting and an avid Crow hunter in the colder months. I throw in some ATV riding and the time is shot in the butt!

This pesky work thing eats up to much quality time!

I do turn in to a Gun Hunter for the annual pilgrimage to the PA hardwoods the week after Thanksgiving.

Asid from my family and church commitments that I relish,I love to play soccer . That comes to a screeching halt during deer season--soccer that is--but I do continue to do some cycling, and weight training in the evenings so I can keep my girlie figure!

Than 2 saturdays a month we have a short track racing school for the public and I am an instructor for that.I do get in spring turkey hunting, and fish when I get the chance.
