When not playing guitar, I enjoy:

Dog training
Table tennis
Sporting clays
Fishing
Hunting

All of these include my family in some capacity except table tennis, but my children are now old enough to be introduced to the sport (as opposed to the game of ping pong).

Huh? Ping pong is just another name for table tennis.
You are saying they are different?

Well....they both involve two paddles (singles), a table and a ball. However, one is an actual Olympic sport. The other tends to be played in bars and basements. Of course, I have actually played table tennis with other serious players in bars and basements 😉.

During my hitch in the Army, I was stationed in South Korea 1970-71...

I played against some South Korean and Japanese players who played some SERIOUS Ping Pong...

Ya no longer hunt so, I don't shoot anything but a camera now days

In retrospect I guess ya could say I replaced hunting with scuba diving and UW photography.
So my current hobbies are Scuba & UW photography ,Bicycling ,Motorcycling, Snow Skiing , Fly Fishing.

Actually, squirrel meat is good for you, if your a meat eater. Loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Squirrel hunting is more of a hike through the woods. Plus. they are easier to get out of the woods than dragging a deer.

I used to hunt the family farm. There's really no place to shoot here in the forest. Indiscriminate shooting forced the sheriff to clamp down.

I even have a T/C Patriot like the one in this video. It's an awesome muzzleloader.

So many hobbies, so little time....
Well, I'm not sure they're hobbies, or passions, a way of life and living.

In no particular order of importance:

Fly Tying
Fly rod building
Trout fishing
Walking the woods...with da dogs
Grouse and woodcock hunting...with da dogs
Taking naps...with da dogs
Reloading and shooting
And of course...drum roll please...playing guitar!! Of course!!
