Padres Pitcher Andrew Cashner Brings Bowhunting to the Ball Field [VIDEO]

The Major League Baseball season is a haul, but Andrew Cashner knows how to break up the monotony: bowhunting.

San Diego Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner has been living the life of a pro ball player for years, but his life as a bow hunter hasn’t had to take a backseat.

Check out how Cashner is able to relieve some stress and keep his archery skills sharp during the long 162-game schedule.

Cashner and the team’s bulllpen catcher are both from Texas, and are able to connect for some relaxation and reminders of home through their bowhunting practice. It’s even a legitimate conditioning drill, building arm and upper body strength with each full draw.

Scoring 190 on a deer is nothing to laugh at, but Cashner did admit that he cut himself while field dressing the animal, so he hasn’t risked an injury by shooting and dressing a deer since.

But when the time does come, at least he’ll be in fine form for another successful bow hunt.
