Possum, I like messing with lawn mowers too, I get mowers from the local dump for free, then do a little work to them. It is amazing what some people throw away,I have even brought ones home before, put gas in them and they run good.

I also enjoy fixing and riding any type of car, 4-wheeler, or bike. Ever since I was little I have been messing around with old honda bikes. We kind of collect the little hondas now. Here's one I fixed a few years back, one of my favorites to put around on.

This past year I got a german shorthaired pointer, I am glad I convinced my parents. I have been working on getting him broke in, and I can't wait to see how he does in hunting season. He fills a lot of my spare time. I don't mind doing anything outside.

I have a long list, or at least it seems pretty long. The ones that I have had for a while are: Bow making, woodworking, and hunting. Recently(the last 2 years or so) I have begun to trap, make knives, and have began to do a bit more fishing, before all I'd do is dip netting for salmon to fill the freezer, but now I'll get out the rod and reel sometimes. I want to try out bowfishing, just haven't gotten around to doing that. I love putting together and using axes, and other tools. Eventually I would like to try out blacksmithing, mostly making axe heads is what I'm interested in, but other parts of that craft would probably interest me as well.

Fixing up machines is something I do too, but that seems to me more of a chore that something fun to do. Don't get me wrong, it is really rewarding to get a broken machine running again, but its just so much work and money it isn't all that fun to me.

Well, I fixed a go cart motor once...or twice.... or enough times I could do it with my eyes closed now. Reality is, I like working on SMALL ENGINE MOTORS. Don't get me in to car or diesel motors though!!!

My favorite things to do though are trap, shoot for fun (plinking with my .22) And hunt. I'd fish, and can do that for hours, but it isn't my thing really.

Plum Billy: I would Love to try blacksmithing too. That always has interested me and so has Welding and sautering.

I do a lot of fishing. I've recently got into predator hunting. I am also a swimming instructor at a local pool.

I'm working on training my horse to rope calves, but I've never been to the rodeo yet.
No I'm sorry the thing I can think of that would help would be to hold on! my uncle did bronc riding for a while. If you go to the horse forum they might know.
but yes this topic should be! :-)

Latest hobby is leather working. Have been busy all summer but will be picking it up again soon. I picked up reloading two years ago and realized i dont shoot much. Still very satisfying..
I used to be pretty into the "hot rodding" scene...working sheet metal, painting and striping...which led into sign painting. Havnt touched any of that stuff in years now though.
Id like to go off the deep end with carpentry..but i need a good mentor. Oh yeah i almost forgot! Im what they call a hobby farmer too lol.


Just gonna send it...

That's cool. I've been looking into leather working but not really a hobby for me yet. I'm doing welding next year, I'd also like to try a hand in blacksmithing.
