We've not discussed this for a while. .. 2012 was the last thread I could find, we've had lots of new members since then.  

 

So tell me what do you do for recreation, and at what point does a hobby become an obsession!   Try to include photos if possible. 

 

I say obsession because believe me there's a fine line between it!  

 

My hobby is knitting,  it sounds boring but the modern knitting isn't. .. I'm trying to produce my own made by me wardrobe as I enjoy dress making as well.  At the moment. .. If I'm sitting them I'm knitting :D

I have done but not lately. .. although I have thought about doing them again

Let me know if you do.

I have a woven Navajo tie from a sister on an Indian reservation and I have a wood bow tie. I think a nice knitted tie would be perfect.

I will do Richard,  I've done sewn ones and a few knitted.  The Navajo tie sounds beautiful.

When I was younger, I overindulged in my hobbies and certain things had to reach perfection. Obsession was a good term for me back then. My sister said it best years ago regarding my hobbies. She said “there’s a fine line between hobby and mental illness.” :D 

 

Most witnesses would probably think my hobbies are a sin. I enjoy a couple of shooting sports such as archery and benchrest rifle shooting and long range shooting. I also hunt and fish to put lean organic free ranging meat on the table.

 

Where I live, none of what I do is looked down upon. Most of our brothers including servants and elders hunt and fish here. I even bump into them at the range from time to time! 

 

When I lived in a major metropolitan area in the lower 48 about the time I was 18, I went deer hunting on opening day which was a Friday. That was my normal service day. When I didn’t show up for service a sister asked my mom if I was sick. My mom said “no. He’s deer hunting today.” The sister then asked if I was using a bow and arrows. My mom said “no. He’s using a rifle.” The sister shrieked and asked if I had left the truth. Lol! My mom told her no I hadn’t left the truth. She was so puzzled that I owned a gun.

 

I’m so glad I don’t have to go through that anymore! 

 

I pioneer friend of mine butchering some fish we caught and my wife and I at the range ringing some steel targets.

I use to have a few bows and a target years ago, I have never owned a rifle and I haven't been fishing in a long time but your hobbies sound like fun :thumbsup:

Manufacturers have bows for everybody including small kids and women. I have a 6 year old that uses a 20# pull weight. 

 

Why type of bow does your 6 year old son/daughter have?

 

I had a couple of recurves at one time that were #30 and #35 pull.

Hobbies - you need time and talent.  Alas I have neither but the idea is really appealing.

Dear Kerry, one of my hobbies is singing - actually I would sing all the time, if I didn´t feel sorry for the people around me.

So, I can confirm you that I have NO TALENT AT ALL - but that doesn´t keep me from doing it :raspberry:
