Non hunting sports ?

How many of you guys participate in any other sports during the off season or otherwise?

As for myself other than hunting, fishing, camping and shooting I do nothing but work and save money for the above.

Even though I have lived in Colorado more than 26 years now and nearly within sight of some of the best skiing in the state I have never even tried it. My kids did a few times but had little interest and mostly do what I do.

I have friends that golf and stuff but I don't get into that either even though I did give it a try. I just hate wasting money that could be saved to go hunting somewhere.

I have played a few other

I have played a few other sports. I was a professional ski instructor for four years, played rugby for a few years, softball, and I try to play golf, but like hunting (not always successfully).

With fishing not being

With fishing not being hunting it still could be as you have to hunt for the correct fly that the fish are looking for day...but  I love to fly fish from the belly boat.  I also play some golf.  But more than anything I play alot of sports with my 5 year old son...what ever he wants to play thats wahte we play!!

Trap

I shoot trap whenever I can but mostly I hunt.  There is variety enough in that between turkeys, waterfowl, deer and those dream hunts for larger game like moose and African game.  Someday I'd liek to take a big bear.  I guess if I wanted variety I'd just move over into pig or antelope hunting! lol  Someday I might try archery hunting again or even crossbow.  I do a few reenactments - that's almost a sport!  I could play dress up liek reenactments and compete if I ever got ambitious enough to get into cowboy action shooting.  Maybe I will someday!

But for now, other than that I help the kiddos by coaching little league and cheering on the side lines for soccer etc. but don't get out on the field after thw balls myself these days.

Since there is almost always

Since there is almost always something in season here,I guess I'm hunting most of the time, might have a fishing rod, camping gear or a berry bucket ,but always a firearm or two. Spring bear is great eating ,and a berry bear from the mts in late summer ain't bad.More and more parts of the state have open season on brown bears now, just a lot of them and not enough people want to harvest the smaller interior grizz , and most of the state has no closed season on snowshoe hares. Though I don't take them from mid March till late Aug or Sept.So I guess everthing else is just another way to be out hunting or scouting for hunting.
