    I'm sure that we aren't completely one track in our interests so I decided to make a thread about it. For me, my other interests are animals, gaming ( favorites including Team Fortress 2, the Portal series, etc.) and paleontology. I also like to use clay to make small animals, both living and extinct and I fancy myself quite the artist.

    as with everyone , we all have some other interests ,
    my self im getting into fly fishing , and ive got to admit ,l can only get better at it .I truly sick at it .but enjoy it ..
    and photography ,once again lots of room for improvement .
    archery 3d ,target .
    4x4 driving and bush walking .
    ive found thay most if not all hunters are outdoor people , with interests in most sports
    also camping , love it ,would do it every week end if l never lived at my work .
    bird watching also sparks my attention ,both feathered and pretty ones that smell really nice , ha ha ha
    and 80 s music
    my biggest interests lay in watching my kids start to make their own branches on the family tree ,as they are all older now and living their own lifes , and me and my wife are fascinated in seeing that we actually pulled it off , and grew 3 good and proper kids .
    they are actually great kids not just good

    Hi tigris115!
    For me it is:
    Fly fishing. Any kind of fishing really, but I like fly fishing best
    Outdoor sports such as snow skiing, hiking, backpacking, camping, etc
    Motorcycles - dirt bikes mostly. Motocross, desert and mountain trail riding
    Aviation - my dad was a fighter pilot in WWII. He flew a P-38 in combat in North Africa, France and Italy and I have loved planes since I was a little kid
    Ammo reloading and testing
    Archery - haven't had time to keep up on the practice so I've been away from it for a few years
    Thanks for asking!
    Post up some of your artwork when you get a chance!

    Nice thread @tigris115
    For me its all about being outdoors. Hunting, kayaking, fishing and walking through the mountains with my dog and spending time with my wife.
    But wildlife photography would be my biggest hobbie (hunting is a way of life) and living where I do, Iam very fortunate to get some great opportunities. I would love to have my own wildlife photography/hunting safari business one day. I have attached a few photos that i have taken.

    p.s. They all copyrighted!:sneaky:

    sadly I labour under the reality that I have no hidden talents. I have been fascinated by traditional martial arts for over 30 years (not sport karate or the UFC which is a fighting sport for those with a short attention span. I believe I am the only person who still enjoys a good boxing match lol). I also enjoy most non-fiction or political writings. Currently I am figuring my way through off roading with a goal of getting waaay out there to hunt. We shall see.

    tigris you can also check on peoples profile page, as if people take the time to fill in the info page there is a slot for other interests on it, seems most joiners put the bare minimum these days :(
