Default So, What Do You Do During The Off Season?

Being retired, I have to be creative (to the best of my ability) and:
1. Cut and sell firewood to income restricted families cheap;
2. Occasionally teach classes for the military; and
3. My wife grew some gourds to put designs on and after they were harvested, lost interest. So, I am doing the work for her. Here are some that I completed....

Work, work spend time with the family when I'm not working an if I get the chance I head out on the ice for an days ice fishing. As the winter progress take an trip South with the family and start to Shed hunt (seen abuck the other day with antlers intact still). Prepare everything for the spring turkey season.

Would like to find an new sight for my bow and change the rest that is on it also. But going to wait till I have got an vise to do it all with.

I'll get caught up on chores, lol......we just redid the bathroom, just have to paint it, then the yard needs some serious help, the freeze destroyed it....been fishing a couple of times, need to do more of it....usually go hog hunting some.....i'm really liking this thing they call "Birding", lol...so I'll be doing that alot, just as long as I'm in the outdoors and I come home to a clean house I'm happy.
