    Default Hobby ???

    What is your #1 hobby that takes up the biggest chunk of your free time between now and the next deer hunting season???

    Sorry everyone but spending time with family doesn't count, that should be your passion not a hobby.

    I really enjoy golf but last year it was getting to know my new bow as well as I possibly could so I shot whenever I had free time. Only golfed a couple of times last year.

    scouting, trail cameras, archery (i know that's a foul), beautifying my lawn in summer(I get too anal about it), nascar, and shoveling snow (and i'm sick and .....tired of the cold weather. #1 is family though. It seems i spend 9 months rebuilding my marriage and 3 months destroying it. J/K. My wife is very good about me and my hunting. Just have to pull more around the house then to earn some browny points. It took me awhile to learn this, but if the woman is happy then everyone else in the house is happy.

    Here is a picture of what I do from January to July, I hand feed baby birds from the time they hatch till they eat on thier own. Here's what they look like when they are between 2-5 days old and what they look like when weaned. These guys have to be fed every 4 hours starting at 6am till 10pm.
