I don't hunt too much but that's my most recent 'hobby'. I went for whitetail last weekend. Lets just say there is still room in the freezer and my butcher may need to find other work! Perhaps this weekend I'll have some success if I can get back into the stand.

I used to shoot trap weekly but when I moved it became less convenient. I may pick it up again in the spring.

I would like to someday shoot high-power. I had the privilege of officiating at the national high-power matches at camp perry a few years ago and that got me interested.

Other than that I plink and occasionally do pistol. I tried doing PPC but I'm not coordinated enough to think time, cover, target and movement all at the same time.

Never enough time or money unfortunately.

i fool with a lot of things but i'm not very good at any of them.

besides the house and home projects, i like fooling with pontiac fieros, but i'm not the mechanic i need to be to really do what i want.

i got a motorcycle last year, after not riding for about 20 years. caught a deal and decided it was time.

guitars some. i can amuse myself for maybe 15-20 minutes, anyone listening would be amused for about 14-19 minutes less time.

bicycles. something i did when i was younger and came back to about 4 years back. i've learned to weld since the last time i played with them so i tend to hang out on custom bike forums and make myself weird bikes. my favorite and my motorcycle
