What Else Do You Enjoy, Besides Archery?

Post by Waiting4Fall on Mon Jan 09, 2012 8:22 am

I learned that our newest member, bicster guides on the New River. My first experience rafting was last summer. It was beyond fantastic, & I'm returning this year for more. I also plan on taking a rock climbing class, & next year when Emma turns 6 I'll be taking her for her first easy water experience.

I'm sharing some of my non archery hobbies/interests. Feel welcome to share your's here as well.

Besides hunting . . . Really, is there anything else?
Seriously, Firearm collecting (WWI/WWII). This one got out of hand so I got my FFL and started buying and selling . . . Heavily.
Guitar and Bass (Missouri's resident Ted Nugent guitar player/hunter/NRA spokesman wannabe).
Computer programming.
General mischief.

I enjoy everything archery, reloading for my handguns/ rifles, shooting those handguns and rifles. Camping, fishing, cross-country skiing, spending time with my family.

I like to fish, canoe, cook on the grill and hike, but my favorite all time thing is tracking! I don't need any snow either, though I do love snow! Also, thinking about getting a guitar and learning to play!

I enjoy family activities such as camping(can't wait to bring my daughters along for a real "roughing it" tent camping trip.....my loving wife has already endured one...she is such a trooper), fishing(my youngest daughter is not into archery and this is the one outdoor family activity that really excites her), and I am an avid....well...gardener. Ok I admitted it! I need a twelve step program! LOL! We enjoy growing our family's own vegetables. My daughters begrudgingly help with getting the garden started, but once the vegetables start coming in, they love to help with the picking. My youngest has yet to let a sweet pea reach the dinner table....she takes her dog on what she terms frequent potty breaks. It's all a ruse so she can raid the pea vines. One thing I forgot to mention, is that my wife and middle daughter are both competitive archers and I thoroughly enjoy tagging along watching them compete. My daughter has won several state, national and international titles and my wife, even though she doesn't consider herself a threat, has, in the past year, won several state titles of her own. Ok....I'm done bragging for now....sometimes I can't help myself. I'm a proud husband and father!

Other than hunting my three kids keep me busy. My 8 yr old plays travel baseball March - Aug & then plays football until mid Nov. I'm going to be running ragged when my 4 yr old twins start sports.

Pretty much an outdoor enthusiast.Of course, that includes hunting and fishing, but the twist is I really enjoy the videography aspect and editing and producing videos for my website. A hobby that realy took me by storm. I find I`m never without my camera now,hunting fishing,and in the off season between trips I play cameraman for my sons on their snake and reptile hunting adventures.

If I'm not deer hunting I'm getting ready to go..shoot my recurves just about every day..except during hunting season, then just enough to stay strong.

When I'm in the mood I do taxidermy work, build traditional flintlocks, reload, cast bullets, tie flies, fish, photography, watercolor paint, build custom computers and watch college football.

I spend a lot of time on my equipment, mostly My bows, but I do spend some time on My high powered air rifles and Crossbow. I'm also a Master Tech who doesn't turn a wrench for money anymore. So I have My project vehicles I get around to from time to time. Usually when funds allow.

Weight training, hiking, being in the woods, martial arts, makin' stuff, spending time with my wife n' kids, and MMA fighting. Just had my last fight actually, that's how I tore my bicep, punchin' the other guy. Now I'm retired ...

I'm the guy in the blue gloves and snow camo shorts Smile
