I motorcycle, jet ski, 4 wheel, shoot guns, watch football, and play some video games. Other than that, it's just work work work.

Karate and Cello, both for 9 yrs. And it seems as though part of this is about hobby and money, and let's just say the first chair's cello last was worth 15 grand, he was in 8th grade. Mine isn't quite that much

I bet you can guess my third hobby

When I took the car to the Dallas Auto Show from Corpus Christi (about an 8 hour drive), the people from Sony couldn't believe I drove it up to be in their booth. Its a fun car, but it does get scary when people get too close.

Cars/truck. I love going fast, and love playing offroad.
Camping - kinda goes along with offroading
shooting, fishing, hunting
aquariums.

To bad everything is so expensive

Spending time at the range, something special about the smell of gun powder in the morning.

I have a few other hobbies. My main interest is poultry/pheasants. I have been breeding/showing chickens for the last 12 years or so. I love playing with genetics and have made a few new color varieties that were good fads that made lots of money such as barred araucanas, dun laced wyandotte bantams, crele phoenix bantams, dun sumatras, and some other colors. This year I will be working on feather birds (breeding for long hackle/saddle for fly tying). I also have some show stock. Other than domestic chickens/ducks I have pheasants. This coming spring I will be breeding silver pheasants, amherst pheasants, and some melanistics.

Other than poultry I do taxidermy just for fun, I've had a colony of dermestid beetles since I was 15 just to clean skulls of whatever I come across. I also read lots and lots of books about evolution/extinction/island biogeography. I train horses, go camping/fishing all summer long, spend tons of time at the lake house, judge poultry, spend time with my kids/family. That is one reason why I am glad I don't have a job, I don't have to worry about not having enough time for my hobbies

"dermestid beetles " are pretty amazing. I had a Corsacan ram's skull cleaned by a Taxi-Service thatr my Taxidermist works with. It's so perfect people don't believe it is real.
