Hanging out with the boys (my buddies--I'm 19) on the lake in the summer, My dad and I enjoy our trip to the milk river (MT) every year bowhunting, I'm a big upland hunter I love my dog, Hanging out with the girlfriend, and lastly I LOVE to ice fish almost as much as I do bowhunting.

Spending time with my wife and daughter is huge for me.My daughter is 11 1/2 and I am going to blink my eye's and she will be out of the house.Exercise,Hiking,Turkey Hunting are the things that I do in addition to all year round involvement with deer hunting.I am seriously considering beginning to trout fish again,I did a lot of it when I was younger and it is calling to me.

During the off season...if you can even call it that...I fish all the time...from flyfishing bluegill(its more fun than it sounds)
-That is my favorite way to catch bluegill, especially when there on the nest.

-I forgot to add, wildlife photography, mushroom hunting" mmmmmmm my mouth is watering", tie flies, and somtimes look for indian artifacts in plowed fields
Yeah, I love to catch Bluegills on my 3wt fly rod. Feels like a bass when you get a decent size one on. And the action is non stop during the summer months down here.

I like to tie flies also. Especially, bass bugs the size of my thumb. Nothing like a seven lb largemouth hitting one of those on the surface.

I also lift weights and run, but I don't consider those hobbies....I consider those more "lifestyle" activities.

I was wondering what else you guys/gals do besides bow hunt. I personally hunt deer with both gun and bow. I waterfowl hunt. Trap mostly coons, beavers, muskrats, or what ever else gets in my traps. Hunt small game such as doves, squirrels, and rabbits. I predator hunt, with no success yet. Hunt turkeys in the fall and spring, Im going to try hunting them with a bow this spring. Also, do alot of fishing durring the spring and summer and somtimes a little ice fishing if the ice ever gets thick enough to safely do it. I think that is about all.
Other activities that I do:
1. Deer Hunt (Bow,allseason long)
2. Duck & Goose Hunt
3. Dove & Squirrel Hunt
4. Turkey Hunt, Spring & Fall (Bow Only)
5. Ride Motorcycles, both cruiser and sportbike
6. Shed Hunt & Property Hunt & Camping
7. Play Texas Holdem Poker at the Casino
8. Fish for Bass, Crappie, Catfish, Hybrid Bass & Bluegill
9. Work
10.But most importantly, spend quality time with my kids.

I bowhunt in the off season.

Bowfishing is my passion.

I also trap, small game hunt and garden. I get lots and lots of free fertilizer in scaly packages. You should see the tomato plants!

The wife and I are Licensed Fly Fishing andUpland Bird Hunting Guides, and raise/train German Shorthaired Pointers. Tie flies, leadersand make a limited amount of custom made fly fishing nets from select woods fora couple offly shops in the area. We are lucky we get paid for our hobbies! If I can figure out how to Guide for whitetails in Kansas or one of the other Great whitetail states, I will have it made!!! As far as enjoying something I dont get paid for, I also build a few custom Fly Rod for friends and family, and am getting ready to build a coffee table that looks like a river bed with a large brown trout in it, and a few end tables with large Whitetial sheds in them, I already made the antler lamps to go on them from record book size sheds, So I guess woodworking would be a hobby.
