I am over on Craftster.org - A Community for Crafts and DIY Projects with Free Craft Ideas, Inspiration, Advice and More and I noticed is mostly females not so much men doing crafts. Now I was asking myself which are sort of mens hobbies ? Not that both women and men can not do same things. But are there hobbies that men prefer ? Not talking about golf or sports here.
Does someone know if there is somewhere an online list of top 100 hobbies for men ?

Why do you want a man's hobby? If you were a man you wouldn't need to ask this question.

Here are some suggestions anyway:

Models...plastic/die-cast/RC
Trains
Prospecting...panning/detecting
Photography
Numismatics
Porn
Gambling
Internet chat boards/forums
Cars/bikes/planes
Stamp collecting
Bird watching
Fishing Fly tying

I'm a retired man and I have had hobbies for most of my life and at times my hobbies had to serve as my job when I got tired of clock punching into bad jobs with hollering power tripping bosses.

Below is a list of my past and current hobbies:

leather working,
silver and goldsmithing,
gem cutting,
rock hounding,
fishing,
photography,
inventing and designing products,
writing,
model railroading (HO and N scale),
restoring antiques,
shooting guns and using other weapons,
exploring wild-lands on foot
river floating by kayak,
sailing sailboats from dinghies to large yachts,
riding dirt bikes and atv machines in the mountains,

I did however give up playing with paper dolls and trying on our parents clothes with my sisters a long long time ago !
Hope you got some ideas from this post. ~♥~ Helping out neighbors in need is a good hobby too.

It is not for myself that I asked this question I have way too many hobbies. I asked this for my friend who mentioned he was looking for a hobby but had no idea what as he never had time for any hobby. Thanks to both of you for the answers.

Can't believe we have two big lists and nobody mentioned woodworking. Hunting, fishing, hiking and camping are big in my part of the country. I also Googled it and found a list of 217 hobbies for men.

Actually fishing was mentioned by a few of us...

Probably mo one mentioned hunting because the OP said other than sports and hunting is a sportsmans activity!
