    Besides a full time job as a construction manager, I also mow lawns, hunt, fish, trap, and find time to go on vacation once in a while.

    I shoot a lot of archery. Shoot leagues year round and attend 12-15 area tournaments per year. If there is a free moment and/or the kid is asleep, my target bow is in my hand usually.

    Love to bowhunt whenever I can, and shoot with my daughter. I got into bass fishing small club tournaments and that has become very addicting. Spending time with the wife and kids in the garden and yard work takes up the rest of my free time.

    This is full time for me and I have two daughters ages 5 and 6. They keep us very busy. Besides that I'm an avid golfer. I play in two leagues a week and golf whenever I get a chance.

    Right now I'm planting soybeans. I suppose I'll always farm a little to offset the millions I make in taxidermy .
