We shed hunt, tap maple trees, start seeds for our early crops, shoot, and cut a lot of fire wood.

Along with all the additional farm work. But I dont make my living at it so it must be a hobby right?

Ice fishing and crafts take up most of my winter schedule but do still like to do some snowshoeing if we ever get enough snow again. Crappies are just starting to bite now and there is enough ice on the lakes to get my Ice Castle fish house out, but with this warm weather might stick with the portable for now.

Been doing a lot more falconry this year than trapping. Been at it for some years, but first time with one of these little sparrow killers. She's a female merlin I've named Lily.

If the Okefenokee Swamp is considered the bear factory...then yes I am.
