Last fall, Stewart spent quality time unwinding in the woods and on the water when he was rehabbing his broken leg and appreciated the recuperative powers of hunting and fishing.

While everyone knows what Tony Stewart will be doing on February 23 at Daytona International Speedway, what he does during the off-season might surprise you. The driver of the Number 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet is an avid hunter who especially enjoys the challenges of bowhunting.
Stewart didn’t grow up hunting, though. Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris planted the seed by encouraging Stewart to manage his Indiana property for deer. Stewart got his first taste of hunting about 11 years ago, when good friend and NASCAR legend Red Farmer took him on an Alabama hunt. Today, it’s fair to say he is ate up with hunting whitetails using a stick and string.
“I love getting outdoors and getting away from it all. Even when it’s not hunting season, I just like to get out there with a pair of binoculars so I can see what’s going on. It’s a nice way to hit reset and leave everything behind,” Stewart said.
