I spend time with the wife and kids more so then during the deer season, also work OT if there is any which there hasn't been, I don't do OT during the deer season, also the wife can't say anything when I hunt when I spend the time with her and the kids during the off season

There's an off-season? lol

Coyote/Fox hunting, shed-hunting, scouting, hiking, turkey hunting, fishing, etc. There's always a reason to be outdoors!

“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

Fish, scout when I can but usually double up the family time so when deer season comes, I've got credits with the wife... Happy wife = happy hunting life!

Hiking, scouting, archery (can never have too much practice), brewing beer, eating, drinking beer, fishing, and working on computers (yes, I am a terminal geek).

Off-season is family time. Beach, crabbing, pool, etc. I do try and get out on the dirt-bike to blow off some steam. My gears gets stowed and I don't look at it until August. Keeps the wife happy, and thusly, me happy.

I do spend time looking for new properties to lease. All the farmers are outside and it's easy access.
