Sports. I'm a huge hockey guy. Watching, playing, anything really. Love my local teams, but i also will watch any other game that i can catch. Just love the sport. I also follow most all of the other major sports, not nearly as much. I'm one of those guys who keeps their radio at the local sports station.
I also like video games. Play anything from sports games, to shooters, to MMO's. Though as I've gotten older, the gaming became more of a occasional hobby, unlike when i was a kid.

Bass Fishing. Freshwater mostly but love getting into the bays and inland saltwater for specks, reds, and flounder too!

besides hunting and shooting, I also like to go on paranormal investigations with some of my college buddies collecting EVP readings and photos of some evidence from locations deemed haunted. When I am not doing this, I would spend time with my family to go on trips to the museum, zoo, animal farms, I even like going to alligators farms for show. I would also go to movies and shopping malls with my wife and read some interesting books in barnes and noble. I also like to go fishing in both rivers and saltwater and try to catch some redfish or speckled trout. I also particpate in church functions with my daughter and take an active role in volunteering.
My main stuff is seasonal; Dual Sporting in the spring/summer, R/C flying in the summer and bird hunting in the fall.
The bird hunting involves dogs, I'm busy keeping a very messy setter up and running. It also involves keep skill sharp, so I shoot clay as much as time allows too.
The dual sporting doesn't really take much of my time, other than minor bike upkeep and repair. I just hop on and disappear for a few hours into the hills of SE Ohio or the foothills of Kentucky. Once in awhile, I end up in the WV or TN mountains.
I was heavy into R/C airplanes up until about 8 years ago, and my time and money was divided to much to keep playing with flying toys. I just recently bought another plane for my young son and I to build and fly together.
I also always have some sort of home improvement project going. I'm finishing my basement right now, Yes, it does have a new gun room. We just got done with a kitchen and bathroom remodel, Complete with plumbing relocate, moving partition walls, new electric and cabinetry.
