Re: What are your other passions?

Twenty years ago, by far my main interest was sailing ( lived aboard a Hunter 30 in Marathon Florida). Thought I could limit my shooting sports interest while sailing around Florida and the Bahamas to just 2 guns, but just couldn't do it. Soon, I had 3, then 4, then my gun population began to multiply again.
Now, I live in a house and my main interests, shooting, and hunting are in in the forefront.
My sailboat is trailerable and is docked in my back yard.
Another interest is photography, I finally gave up film and have digital cameras. The most difficult transition was selling my much loved 1950's era Crown Graphic 4"X5" sheetfilm camera.
Camping also rates right up there. No tents for me anymore, a slide-on truck camper is as close to roughing it as I want to get.
I still do a little archery and am thinking about bow deer hunting next fall in addition to my usual rifle hunting.
All this keeps my retirement from getting boring.
