Default Hunting vehicles

Thought I'd post some pics of our hunting rigs. They get us where we need to go to hunt, and are also a lot of fun for just ripping around the desert.

My buddy has the 660 Rhino. It is an amazing vehicle. I have some videos of us winching it over a blowdown that was about 6' high and 25' wide a couple of years ago. We have driven it through lap deep water with no problem. It carries a ton of gear and takes it wherever it needs to be. The only thing that has ever stopped it was lack of clearance for the roll cage. Having the winch mounts front and rear has been very helpful.

My son has the Kawi Prairie 360. It has a solid rear axle and can carry a heavy load without tipping or getting squirrelly. Plenty of torque, but it tops out at about 50mph. No problem putting around at 5mph quietly to get back into our hunting area.

I have the Grizzly 700 and love it. Fuel injection keeps it running smooth from a few hundred feet of elevation in our high desert to over 11,000 where we hunt. It has power steering and rides like a motorized Lazy Boy recliner. Fast as hell (70mph), too. But it has an independent rear suspension which makes for extra comfort, but limits the load it can carry without tipping. It also lacks a pull starter which always makes me nervous. But it is a great ride and I love it.

Our campsite is 25 miles from where we hunt and we always race like maniacs the first 20 miles in, and the last 20 miles out. It never gets old.

You ever tried to pull start that grizzly? Give it a shot sometime, it's not as bad you might think. Yamaha makes some great ATVs!

You mean by towing it? Have not tried it. But I do love my Yamaha. My son's Kawi is a great bike, but it is nowhere near as comfortable after a few hours.

Sounds like an excuse to get another dozen dogs!

The Bad Boy Buggy. Totally electric 4X4 vehicle. this thing wont get stuck. And its all electric so its SILENT! if you dont use lights at night youll never know it passed by.

we also have 2 honda 4wheelers. no pics of those tho. and then we use my dads Z71 suburban sometimes. mainly the bad boy though.
